Hyderabad turns saffron for BJP meet but party banners irk commuters

Hyderabad: The city has turned saffron ahead of the Bharatiya Janata Party's National Executive meeting in Hyderabad to be held on 2 and 3 July.

The streets are filled with the party's banners welcoming the leaders to the executive meet. These banners, however, have also become inconvenient for commutes. Some have complained about banners placed on the roadside to the GHMC's Director of Enforcement, Vigilance, and Disaster Management.

One Twitter user shared photos of the banners and requested GHMC to remove them. "Team, Big Banners are existed from Gachibowli flyover circle upto kondapur botanical garden and AMB Mall. I am not asking penalty, request you to remove this banners as per pur govt rule (sic)," he tweeted.

The EVDM, meanwhile, has issued several challans.

It may be recalled that on Wednesday, a huge cut-out with the words "Bye Bye Modi" was put up near the entrance gate for VIPs at the Parade Ground where Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going to address a public meeting. It referred to Mr. Modi's promise of bringing back black money from foreign countries and his policies on demonetisation, sale of Central public sector undertakings, and farm laws. Later, the authorities removed the banner.

BJP leadership in the state

Meanwhile, BJP leaders who are arriving from different states are visiting different constituencies in Telangana as part of the initiative by the state leadership to showcase the party's strength.

Biplab Kumar Deb, the former Tripura Chief Minister, attended a programme organised by the Mahila Morcha in Aadilabad.

BJP national spokesperson Guru Prakash Paswan met party members in Vikarabad and MP Rebati Tripura took part in a meeting organised by the Maripeda Mandal Committee.

"Today presided over the meeting of Office Bearers of #Achampet Constituency, #Telangana in which all the Mandal Presidents, General Secretaries and Shakti Kendra Incharges of all Morchas were present. @BJP4Telangana @BJP4India @BJP4JnK," tweeted Dr. Nirmal Singh, the former deputy CM of Jammu and Kashmir.

Restrictions in the city

In view of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Hyderabad on July 2 and 3, section 144 of the CrPC has been imposed in the Cyberabad commissionerate area. Flying and operating remotely controlled drones or paragliders or remotely controlled micro-light aircraft will not be allowed over an area bounded by a circle of 5 kilometres radius from Hyderabad International Convention Centre (HICC) of Gachibowli, said the Cyberabad police on Wednesday. The order shall remain in force from 6 a.m on 30 June till 6 p.m on 4 July.
