Referring to the recent notification on deletion of controversial clause 14F, Sabitha Indra Reddy expressed gratitude to the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, who had taken decisions step by step pursuing the matter with Legal, Home Departments and Prime Minister’s Office to ensure 14 F cancellation.
She also expressed her gratitude to Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for extending their support in the case.
She also recalled how former chief minister K Rosiah had written twice to the Centre, after the House resolution adopted in 2010 was dispatched to New Delhi, for speedy disposal of the case.
