In Solidarity with Anand Teltumbde

As we all know that Anand Teltumbde is one of the leading Dalit intellectuals of the present times. He has always taken a pro-people stand and raised voice against injustice and targeted exploitation. He has also written many books and articles to support the cause of common masses.

He will be shortly arrested by the State under unlawful activities prevention act(UAPA) for his alleged involvement in Bhima Koregaon incident. The charges levelled against by the State are not true and intellectuals like Anand Teltumbde are being framed because they have been taking rock solid stand for the cause of marginalized communities. He has clearly stood against the present regime and its anti people's policies. The State wants to create a fear among the intellectuals and to prevent them from writing and speaking against them.

Hence, in order to oppose this arrest and support Anand Teltumbde, a few democratic organisations have given a call for a joint solidarity meeting to extend support to Anand Teltumbde. Lamakaan, being an open and cultural space has also extended its support for the cause and conduct this meeting to propagate the cause.

His heart wrenching open letter to the general public clearly shows he's implicated in a false case.
