The Amaravati farmers and Women during an interaction with JanaSena party chief Pawan Kalyan said “the police personnel have beaten us indiscriminately even we told them that we protest Peacefully and not go inside the Assembly.”
They dragged us long distances and some miscreants joined with us and resorted to stone-pelting, farmers said.
There are no farmers among the stone-pelting mob, they said.
We also promised that we will not cross the line, but they did not heed our voice, said farmers.
Some persons in the civil dress gave directions and the police personnel made baton charge indiscriminately, they said.
We don’t know who is beating us whether the police or goons as their language is totally different, they said.
The police behaved like goons, they said.
The farmers also said they have been tied with ropes and whisked away as they are not looking like policemen who protect people.
Even they took away our drinking water bottles and thrown into canals in an inhuman manner, the farmers explained.
