Megastar Chiranjeevi has appreciated the Andhra Pradesh government for bringing in 'Disha Act and wrote a letter appreciating the AP government, in the letter he wrote "I am hoping that the law will provide for and protect women, especially women and children who have been sexually abused. The Disha incident brought change in our lives and those emotions demanded immediate justice. There is a belief that quick justice yields more benefits. The first step in Andhra Pradesh for such quick justice. By amending the CRPC, shortening the 4-month trial period to 21 days, providing special courts with other basic amenities. the IPC will result in severe punishment and life imprisonment for child molestation. I am confident that women will be able to live freely and freely with these actions".

The Andhra Pradesh cabinet on Wednesday approved draft legislation that mandates disposal of cases of atrocities against women within 21 days and handing out the death penalty.

Another draft legislation has also been approved, which will pave the way for the establishment of special courts to try cases of atrocities against women and children.
