Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar behaving like TRS spokesman: BJP complains to SEC

Hyderabad: The BJP has complained to the state election commission (SEC) against Hyderabad Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar over his interview to a news channel.

BJP said Anjani Kumar while speaking to the channel was behaving like a spokesperson of the ruling TRS.

"Instead of speaking on the law and order issue concerning the GHMC elections, he was referring to the Software Companies, Development of Hyderabad and commenting that Hyderabad has grown only during the last six years with all-round development. He compared Hyderabad with Bengaluru and described it as a Global City which has nothing to do with the issue of maintaining law and order", BJP said in the complaint.

The party alleged that even though he was not the Commissioner of Hyderabad during the period 2014, he went on to comment that the city is free from communal tension and curfew.

He has referred to previous communal incidents and imposition of curfew only to support and substantiate the ruling party of TRS. He has gone to the extent of commenting on the security of borders, which is unwarranted.

"With regard to Rohingya Muslims and illegal immigrants he was silent only to suit the view of TRS. Even though violations of the model code of conduct are rampant in the Old City, he denies the same for obvious reasons," the party said.

The BJP said they have no issue as far as maintaining law and order is concerned during the elections.

"Being a senior IPS officer, he is not supposed to support any party. But contrary to it, he is guilty of violating the model code of conduct. Therefore, necessary action may be initiated against him to ensure a free and fair election", the party said.
