Mangaluru : Secretary of All India Progressive Women’s Association Kavita Krishnan has said that even as they continued their fight against fascist forces, there will be no let-up in the pressure on the State government to find the accused in the Gauri Lankesh murder.
Addressing a meeting after a silent “Freedom and Fraternity” march by students from various city colleges in Mangaluru, Ms. Krishnan said that the fight against fascist forces, which started three years ago, will continue. It will not be possible for such forces to gun down voices of dissent to silence so many youth who are coming forward to stand by Gauri Lankesh.
Ms. Krishnan said that they will continue to put pressure on the State government to arrest those behind the murder of Gauri Lankesh.
The State government had failed to find the perpetrators involved in the murder of writer M.M. Kalaburgi, while the Maharashtra government had failed to find those involved in the murders of Govind Pansare and Narendra Dhabholkar. “This is why another bold voice (of Gauri Lankesh) was silenced,” she said.
Students from different city colleges, who wore black ribbons around their mouth, took part in the march.
