Hapless children turn to CM for help

Written by | January 29, 2014 | 0

Hyderabad Jan 29: Ten year-old Raji and her 13-year-old sister Durga Bhavani go to a Government school in Cherukuwada, in Penugonda mandal of West Godavari. They live in nearby Chinnavaripalli and nurture a fervent desire to study well and come up in life.

But since they lost their father Dharma Rao in 2009, in an accident, their future appeared bleak. However, what made it worse was that their mother Lakshmi Palepu is in jail, sentenced to life imprisonment for allegedly murdering the little daughter of her employer in Muscat, where she worked as domestic help.

On Tuesday evening, with help from the National Coordinator of the National Domestic Workers’ Movement (NDWM), Sister Lissy Joseph, they called on Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and made a fervent plea for help. When Mr. Reddy asked the little ones as to what they wanted, they said, “We want our mother back.”
