Bandi Sanjay served notice for insulting KCR at BJPs state Formation Day event

Hyderabad: The Hayathnagar police have issued a notice to BJP Telangana president Bandi Sanjay under Section 41A of the CrPC asking him to appear before the police in connection with the Telangana Formation Day event where derogatory comments were made against Chief Minister KCR.

Three BJP members have been arrested in connection with the case. Jitta Balakrishna Reddy was arrested on 10 June while Rani Rudrama and Dharuvu Yellannaand were arrested on 14 June.

On 2 June, the BJP's Telangana unit, under the leadership of state president Bandi Sanjay and the organisers Jitta Balakrishna Reddy and Rani Rudrama, organised an event on Telangana Formation Day. During the event, the BJP performed a skit allegedly insulting KCR.

Following this, Y. Sathish Reddy, TRS social media convenor, lodged a complaint at the Hayathnagar police station stating that the BJP Telangana unit had misused the platform to defame the government schemes and levelled false accusations against the CM and the government with an intention to mislead the people and evoke hatred and unrest.

Based on the complaint, a case was registered in the Hayathnagar police station against Bandi Sanjay, Jitta Balakrishna Reddy, Rani Rudrama, and Boddu Yellanna, a member of the BJP's cultural team that put up the skit.

The police said that from the video it was evident that the organisers misused the dais and the event that was organised to celebrate the Telangana Formation Day to make derogatory comments and personal attacks. They depicted the Chief Minister in a derogatory manner and indulged in personal attacks and hate speech, the police found.

The skit was taped and telecast by V6, a Telugu TV news channel. Disseminating/telecasting the hate speech to provoke hatred among groups posed a threat to the democratic order and caused distress among certain groups, it was opined.

The police said that after careful examination of the video content, it was established that the BJP Telangana president Bandi Sanjay and the organisers Jitta Balakrishna Reddy, Rani Rudrama, Boddu Yellanna, and his team attacked a democratically-elected person who is holding a constitutional post of the Chief Minister of Telangana.
