KCR writes to PM over attacks on Indians

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take up the issue of racial attacks on Indians, particularly from Telangana, with the US authorities.

The chief minister decided to write to the prime minister after Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Vamsi Chander Reddy

Mamidala, both from Telangana, were killed in that country in racially motivated attacks. In his letter, the chief minister said that killings of Srinivas and Vamsi have shaken the confidence of family members of those young people who are working in the US. “It has been noticed that hate crime against Indians has increased. As we all know the Indian Diaspora in the US are contributing immensely to the development of that country and India as well,” Rao wrote.

Meanwhile, Srinivas’s family here said that Kansas Governor Sam Brownback personally has assured Sunayana Dumala, Srinivas’s wife, that she will be assisted in getting back to Olathe and settle down.

Sunayana was worried about returning to the US as her Dependent Visa ended with the death of her husband who was a H1B visa holder and their application for permanent residency is pending with the US authorities.

Andhra Pradesh IT Minster Palle Raghunatha Reddy also said Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu also took up the issue of Sunayana’s visa with the external affairs ministry.
