Nadda denied permission to attend BJP rally in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: The Hyderabad city police on Tuesday denied permission to BJP national president J.P Nadda to take part in a candle-light rally being organised by the party to protest against the arrest of the BJP Telangana chief Bandi Sanjay Kumar.

The city police said permission was denied in view of the COVID-19 protocols. The BJP president, who has condemned Bandi Sanjay's arrest and said it was the murder of democracy, is expected to arrive in the city on Tuesday afternoon.

The Karimnagar district court remanded Bandi Sanjay to 14 days in judicial custody on Monday after rejecting his bail petition. The BJP state unit has planned protest rallies for 14 days in view of his arrest and judicial custody.

Mr. Sanjay, who represents Karimnagar in the Lok Sabha, and four others were arrested by the police on Sunday for attempting to hold 'Jagarna Deeksha' in defiance of the prohibitory orders promulgated to prevent the spread of COVID-19. He was protesting against a state order (GO317) to reshuffle government employees as per the state's new zonal system.

Meanwhile, Union tourism minister G. Kishan Reddy and BJP leaders Eatala Rajender and Vivek met Bandi Sanjay at Karimnagar district jail on Tuesday.
