Hyderabad: Following Nalgonda MP Uttam Kumar Reddy’s “RSS Agent” comment, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President Asaduddin Owaisi comes to support Hyderabad Commissioner Anjani Kumar. The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Chief used derogatory words and unparliamentary language against Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar in a meeting.
Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi took to twitter on this incident and showed his displeasure. He tweeted, “Congress leader Uttam Kumar’s language against CP Hyderabad is intemperate and should not have been used. He must understand that Darussalam is a large space of AIMIM itself and had once even hosted Indira Gandhi’s public address.”
On Saturday, December 28, Uttam Kumar Reddy called Anjani Kumar as an agent of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). The MP alleged that the Hyderabad Commissioner acted on the instructions of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao instead of delivering his duties as a police officer. Uttam Reddy also said that the officer should change his name from Anjani Kumar IPS to Annanu Kumar KPS.
The IPS officer’s rejection of permission to a rally planned for December 28, 2019, had prompted the Nalgonda MP’s politically charged comment. However, Telangana High Court had earlier dismissed similar applications for holding a protest in the city. Uttam Kumar made these comments after Anjani Kumar denied permission for Congress’ protest rally and meeting at Indira Park on Saturday.
The Police Commissioner’s decision followed due consideration of the aspects of impartiality, the likelihood of disturbance to the peace and public tranquillity, and for maintenance of law and order.
Telangana IPS officers’ Association unanimously condemned the Nalgonda MP’s comments against the Hyderabad Commissioner Anjani Kumar. They also passed a resolution on the same on Sunday, December 29.
