Will drive AIMIM out of Hyderabad and make TS a saffron bastion: Bandi Sanjay

Hyderabad: Telangana Bharatiya Janata Party president Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Sunday vowed to drive the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen from Hyderabad and make the entire Telangana as a "saffron bastion." He was addressing a convention of the BJP functionaries from Hyderabad parliamentary constituency at Minerva Gardens in Champapet.

Stating that the party had chosen Hyderabad parliamentary constituency to declare war against the divisive forces, Sanjay Kumar poo-poohed the talk that the old city of Hyderabad was an "adda" of the AIMIM. "Despite the police cautioning us, we held a meeting at Charminar and showed our strength," he recalled.

Sanjay Kumar pointed out that hard-core Hindu leaders Baddam Bal Reddy, made the saffron flag flutter in Karwan and N Indrasena Reddy won from the Muslim-dominated Malakpet, while Raja Singh has been in the forefront in protecting Hinduism in Goshamahal. "The BJP has the capacity to win four assembly segments in the Hyderabad parliamentary constituency. So, is it difficult to capture the Hyderabad MP seat?" he asked.

Ghar wapsi in old city

He reminded that the old city was like a "Mini-Bharat" in the past with people from all parts of the country – Kannadigas, Marathis and Gujaratis making it their home. "Subsequently, they all fled to the other side of the Musi river unable to bear the atrocities of the AIMIM," he regretted.

Sanjay Kumar alleged that the MIM was trying to capture the old city by hounding out the Hindus, on the lines of the terrorists who had driven away Kashmiri pundits from Kashmir valley."Once the BJP comes to power, we shall bring all those, who fled the old city fearing attacks from the MIM goons, back to their places and see that they get back their assets. We shall start the "Ghar Wapsi" programme from the old city itself," he said.

Sanjay Kumar asserted that the whole aim of the BJP was to develop the old city on the lines of an ultra-modern city. "On the other hand, the AIMIM wants to keep the old city completely underdeveloped, though it hobnobs with the ruling party. The old city doesn't have proper roads and drainage facilities, let alone metro rail connectivity," he criticized.

"I ask those people, who call the BJP a communal party, a straight question. Why are all these parties, which only bother about Muslims who constitute 12 percent of the electorate, not thinking about the Hindus who constitute 80 percent of the voters? What is the crime committed by the Hindus?" he asked.

Sanjay Kumar sought to know why Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who claims himself a genuine Hindu and the other TRS party leaders, put up flex boards and banners greeting Muslims during the Ramzan festival but do not do the same during the Hindu festivals saying: "Greetings to Hindu brethren on Dasara festival, etc."

The BJP president said medieval and stupid policies like Triple Talaq were the reasons for the backwardness of Muslim women. "That is why when the Narendra Modi government brought in a law abolishing the Triple Talaq system, the MIM and the TRS did not support it. If such kind of policies exists, there is a danger that the AIMIM might even issue a Fatwa, banning Muslim women from exercising their franchise in the elections," he warned.

No takers for the third front proposal

Sanjay Kumar alleged that KCR was enacting the drama of entering national politics, only under pressure from his family members to make his son KT Rama Rao the chief minister, as they realised that the TRS won't come to power again. "He is touring states though he has no invitation from anybody. And there are no takers for his third front proposals because nobody believes him," he said.

The BJP president called upon the party leaders to counter the TRS campaign that the Narendra Modi government had done nothing for the state and disprove their allegations with all the statistics. He also declared that if the BJP is voted to power in the state, it would build a big Bhagya Lakshmi temple in Hyderabad, on the lines of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. "Goddess Bhagya Lakshmi is a very powerful deity. We get positive vibes if we worship her. She would fulfill all our desires," Sanjay Kumar asserted.

The party convention was attended by Union minister G Kishan Reddy, BJP leader in the legislative assembly T Raja Singh, state BJP general secretaries D Pradeep Kumar and Mantri Srinivas, vice-president Dr. G Manohan Reddy, and others, along with a large number of party leaders and cadre from the constituency.
