After about a week of launching the campaign they still hadn’t reached their goal.only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognised in California? It was passed in November 2008 to specifically overrule the judgment of the supreme court of Californiawhich held that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry Proposition 8 was then challenged andaffirming the trial courts decision to strike it downthe US Court of Appeals in San Francisco held that the states voters were not permitted to withdraw or negate the right to marry once it had been recognised by the state supreme court This ruling was confined to California DOMAthe other statute under considerationhas a much wider reach Since it is federalit applies uniformly to all 50 states DOMA defines marriage as a legal union between one man and one womanand the word spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex It thus comes in the way of the states that might want to legalise gay marriageby essentially saying that the federal government will not recognise that marriage Inability to marry means same-sex couples are denied around 1100 federal benefits that opposite-sex couples enjoysuch as insurance and social security survivors benefitsimmigration and the filing of joint tax returns But former president Bill Clintonwho signed it into lawhas subsequently changed his position and advocated its repeal Eight federal courts have held DOMA to be unconstitutional California is one of the nine states in the US that allow same-sex couples certain rightssuch as the right to enter into a civil union and the right to adopt Howeverthe right to marriage has become a bone of contention Neither DOMA nor Proposition 8 is being defended by the executive Proposition 8 is being defended by its initators The Supreme Court has never before allowed the proponents of a law to defend its validity before it SimilarlyDOMA is being defended by a section of Republicans from the House of Representativeswith the permission of the court In the DOMA casethe federal government has appealed that the decision of the appeals courtwhich ruled against DOMAbe upheld In other wordsthe executive is requesting the Supreme Court to definitively and conclusively hold DOMA and Proposition 8 to be unconstitutionalso that it can stop enforcing them But in the absence of an adversarial equationthe court is actively grappling with the issue of jurisdiction in this case The US Supreme Court has no power to issue advisory opinionsunlike in Indiawhere Article 143 of the Constitution allows the president to refer a question of law or fact to the Supreme Court for its opinion Another thorn that has presented itself is that the judges are divided on whether their ruling on Proposition 8 will apply to all 50 states or only the nine states where some form of civil union or domestic partnership is currently permissible The chief question in the DOMA litigation concerns the separation of powers The American concept of federalism is different from the Indian concept The American constitution provides that powers not expressly granted to the federal governmentand not prohibited to the statesare reserved for the states in Indiaresiduary legislative subjects are granted to Parliament It is being argued that because every state has always held the power to legislate on marriage related issuesas a residuary powerDOMA is an affront to the American concept of federalism While same-sex couples are looking to the Supreme Court for respitethis particular case doesnt seem to be one where it can issue a sweeping judgment permitting or constitutionalising gay marriages Moreoverthe US Supreme Courtwhich sits en banc in its present conservative-leaning formation of five Republican appointees and four Democrat appointeesseems hesitant to adjudicate on the issue Even Justice Sotomayora Barack Obama appointeeraised questions such as if procreation is the stated purpose of marriagewhy must couples above the age of 55 and infertile couples be afforded the right to marry The court also asked how same sex couples could could be prevented from marrying once they were permitted to adopt children Ultimatelyit appears that the court does not want to enter into this socio-political wrangle at this juncture Its position has consistently been that it is there to adjudge the law rather than form it It is thus an issue of ballot versus gaveland in this caseit appears that the gavel wants to see what balance the ballot will

is angry at the coming together of imperialism and Hindutva — a dangerous cocktail which he says is bent upon killing the Maoist armed rebels Following the 24 October encounter in Malkangiri Odisha when 31 Maoists were gunned down in the wee hours of the morning while they were camping in the forest Vara Vara Rao and other civil liberties activists have called for justice for those killed They have also alleged that the encounter was "fake" and that Maoists were tortured brutally before being killed Representational image AFP Rao’s engagement with the Maoist cause goes back many decades He was one of the negotiators between Maoists and the YS Rajashekhar Reddy (also known as YSR)-led Congress government in united Andhra Pradesh in 2004 The talks failed and the state once again unleashed attacks not only on the Maoistsbut also foisted cases on Rao and other negotiators throwing them in jail for months A renowned writer poet and founder member of Virasam — a Revolutionary Writers’ Association Rao lives in Hyderabad and spoke exclusively to Manasa Chennapragada on the recent Malkangiri encounter Manasa Chennapragada (MC): In your opinion is the NDA government more aggressive towards Maoist rebels than the UPA government was Please explain Vara Vara Rao (VVR): Green Hunt Operation started during 2009 at the time of Manmohan Singh Now it has reached its third phase and Modi has given it another name — Mission 2016 If you talk from the philosophical point of view the imperialist has joined the Hindutva brigade The Modi government during induction itself had said that it is going to implement Gujarat model all over India What is the NDA government doing in Chhattisgarh Dandakaranya and elsewhere Rajnath Singh twice congratulated the Chief Minister and DGP (of Andhra Pradesh) in fact earlier to this action (Malkangiri encounter) he had been to Andhra Pradesh and Odisha It’s a green signal from the central government and the result is the Bejangi encounter And Chandrababy Naidu being a part of NDA is also responsible Naidu and Modi alliance is more aggressive because they believe the Maoist moment is a law-and-order problem not a socio-economic problem Naidu and Modi government is more ruthless as they are serving a World Bank programme in implementing the imperialist globalisation policy along with Hindutva philosophy MC: What do you think happened in the Malkangiri encounter VVR: The government target was the leadership of the party RK (Ramakrishna a prominent Maoist leader) Uday Chalapathi and Aruna and that leadership was not caught They targeted them 16 times but couldn’t find the place they were During the 17th time they were able to locate and kill other people http://s.avfirstpostcom/2016/11/Vara_Vara_Raomp4 MC: Sudhakar Reddy General Secretary of the Communist Party of India alleges that the Malkangiri killing was not an encounter He says it appears Maoists had been arrested and later gunned down Your comments VVR: Some of them were caught in the second round and tortured — Prabhakar Barathi and Daya That way it is not an encounter MC: Do you feel the TRS (Telangana Rashtra Samiti) government in Telangana is friendlier towards the Maoists than earlier regimes VVR: It (TRS regime) is Naidu plus YSR former Congress CM of united AP See the silence of the TRS government We see it was Naidu’s action that happened in the Andhra-Odisha border Among the 31 people who died three people are from Telangana Prabhakar worked for Telangana (from 1997 to 2014) longer than Chandrashekar Rao (Telangana CM) who worked from 2001 to 2014 Daya from Nalgonda district has 25 years of experience and Bharathi comes from Medak district Even for them Telangana government didn’t raise its voice When we protested against encounter killings they implicated cases against us They are not friendly and we don’t any government to be friendly with us We just want you to obey your principals and the Fundamental Rights of the Constitution We want the government to be friendly with the people MC: Please tell us about the press release from Maoists threatening to kill the AP CM and his family VVR: It was a police statement They (Maoists) did not make that threat Also we don’t believe in suicide squads MC: Let us delve into some history now You were part of the negotiators team that organised peace talks between Maoists and the YSR government What has been the aftermath of the failure of the 2004 peace talks VVR: Talks have to be taken in two phases — first phase was restoration of democratic rights and second was land reforms There was also a third phase called self-reliance in which ban on liquor and a separate Telangana was called for Talks went on well for four days The problem started when the government proposed 1 crore 20 lakhs acres of land which is under occupation under 35 categories to industries media etc Under the (Maoist) leadership our people have occupied a portion of the land like in plain areas (we have) three lakh acres of land and in forest area (another) three lakh acres of land We urged the government to give pattas to the people who occupied this land and to distribute the rest We also asked to keep land commission to work on this without just going by our word Everyone was impressed and asked us to suggest how much land commission should be given to whom under the scrutiny of KR Venugopal SR Sankaran Tarakaram Balagopal who are well versed in Dalit Adivasi and landless poor issues We gave 30 names and were waiting for the next meet Instead of having a 30-member committee only a 6-member committee was formed under the guidance of Koneti Ranga Rao who was the deputy chief minister Rao also recommended that if Dalits had occupied land and if they were landless before the occupation then he proposed to give them the land This was not taken into consideration For any ruling party it will be difficult to implement things and during Rajashekar Reddy’s time we were called for a second term talk in which they put a condition to come by giving up arms which was not proposed earlier We thought we will make it an issue during the talks and be firm that we will not do so (lay down arms) But during talks they did not raise the issue In the second phase they added that condition and started encounter killings in the month of January and killed many people on January 17

jailed when the peace talks failed How did that affect you VVR: It’s natural (smiles) It’s not human right activists who were framed but those who represented the Maoists in the talks like myself and Kalyan Rao We were arrested under the Public Security Act and within a week we got bail But during imprisonment they implicated us in all retaliatory acts by foisting eight cases from January to April 2005 and kept us in jail for seven months It’s a kind of frustration since we represented them (Maoists) so they put us in jail MC: There is a lot of trouble within the Maoist groups The issue of Telugu domination in CPI (Maoist) is plaguing the group now — more so than during the merger with the MCC group of Maoists What is going on within VVR: No No During the merger Telugu people were more After the setback of Naxalbari in the Srikakulam struggle it was only from Telangana in 1978 that the Jagtial Jaitra Yatra was started This is as a result of the "Go To Village" campaign call given by RSIV conference in Warangal held in February 1978 and the ROI conference in Guntur in May 1978 One hundred and fifty villages landless poor and agricultural labourers mostly from Scheduled Castes and oppressed castes had come to Jagtial with applications for pattas This resulted in a great struggle called Jagtial-Sirisilla struggle that is the mass line taken by the party A resolution was made in Nagpur during 1976 on the emergency road to revolution which was implemented from 1977 onwards and that was continued in this Jagtial struggle Naxalbari path was not there elsewhere in the other states and because of this continuation and experience (by Telangana armed rebels) they came into the leadership MC: What is the future of the civil liberties movement in Telangana VVR: You should not ask me about the civil liberties movement I am a revolutionary writer Of course I was one of the founder members of APCLC (AP Civil Liberties Committee) but I was there only until 1983 As long as violation of fundamental rights is present civil liberties and democratic movements will be there For example in the Bejangi encounter you (the police) asked them to surrender when they fired for self
