1. Congress to Protest Against ‘Errors’ in Voters List

The TPCC election commission coordination committee has decided to stage a protest against discrepancies in the electoral rolls at Indira Park on 24 January.

The committee headed by former Minister Marri Shashidhar Reddy met in Hyderabad on Monday, 21 January, and alleged that large-scale discrepancies had taken place in the preparation of electoral rolls at the behest of state government. The meeting was attended by party leaders G Niranjan, A Shyam Mohan, B Kamalakar Rao, T Narender and Rajeshwar. Speaking after the meeting, Shashidhar Reddy alleged that the names of about 22 lakh voters were deleted from the electoral rolls in the state in 2015 and 2017 in the guise of Aadhaar linkage during the National Electoral Rolls Purification and Authentication Programme (NERPAP) and Intensive Revision of Electoral Rolls (IRER) in 36 urban Assembly Constituencies.

Unable to bear alleged torture by her daughter’s employer demanding sexual favours, 45-year-old A Kanyakumari hanged herself to death at Mailardevpally on Saturday, 19 January. Police found a note purportedly written by Kanyakumari stating that one Vivekananda was harassing Kanyakumari and her daughter.

According to police, Kanyakumari’s younger daughter started working at Mounika garments three months ago. But when the store owner Vivekananda started misbehaving with the woman, she stopped going to work ten days ago. When Kanyakumari refused to send her to work, he spoke vulgarly demanding sexual favours from her also. Despite repeatedly refusing to his demands, he continued to harass her. Unable to bear this, she hanged herself at her home after he left the place. The girl who was in the next room noticed her mother hanging and called the police.

The child care institutions in Telangana are home to second highest number of child pornography victims on their premises, revealed a recent report by the Union Ministry of Women and Child Development.

While Karnataka tops the chart with 113 victims of child pornography, Telangana comes second with at least 35 reported cases of children subject to pornography before they were given refuge. Shockingly, 33 of these victims are found to be boys, a phenomenon recorded across the country, with more number of boys being victims of pornography than girls.  This Jena Committee Report, which profiles the children in these homes across various categories and analyses the condition of children currently residing in them, recently released a report which revealed the horrifying truth of India’s child care homes. The report was commissioned in light of the ‘Horror Home’ in Muzaffarpur, Bihar where the residing children were subject to sexual abuse for years.
