Visakhapatnam: Leaders of the United Forum of Women’s Associaitons on Tuesday submitted a memorandum to the police demanding the immediate arrest of film director Ram Gopal Varma who made objectionable remarks on women.
They submitted a memorandum to Joint Commissioner of Police D Nagendra Kumar in which they recalled that a case was registered on February 22 against RGV for humiliating women’s associaiton leaders.
However, he was not arrested so far. RGV had also made provocative announcement that he would conduct a meeting in Visakhapatnam on the occasion of International Women’s Day on March 8.
“RGV is making money using woman’s body and publicising his extremely corrupt ideas which would impact the society. He is using his image as film director to mislead the youth and is provoking women’s associations challenging them through media. It RGV visits Visakhapatnam, there is a danger it would create a law and order problem and therefore he should be arrested,” the memorandum said.
All India Democratic Women’s Association leaders B Prabhavati, RN Madhavi, Progressive Organisation of Women leaders M Lakshmi and S Venkatalakshmi, A Vimala, D Lalitha and others signed the memorandum and handed it over to the JCP.
