Hyderabad: Karimnagar MP and BJP state president Bandi Sanjay Kumar said the party would conduct surgical strikes in the Old City once BJP wins the Hyderabad Mayor seat in the GHMC elections. "Once BJP conquers the Hyderabad Mayor seat, we will conduct surgical strikes in the Old City and weed out all Rohingyas residing there illegally. All Rohingyas and Pakistani nationals would be chased out of our area," he said while campaigning in the Old City.
Sanjay also said that the elections here should happen without the votes of Rohingyas, Pakistan and Afghan nationals. Such elections can happen in the city only when BJP comes to power.

He said that BJP is the only one who is taking responsibilities of issues of 80 per cent Hindus and their sentiments, but it is being branded as creating communal issues. "If taking the side of Hindus and standing for their sentiments is a communal thing, then yes, BJP works for the welfare of Hindus and BJP works for Hindu dharma," said Sanjay.
He also warned those involved in cow slaughter. "We will not tolerate any attempts to insult Hindu dharma, divide the Hindu community and practice slaughtering cows," Sanjay warned.
He also stated that fearing the saffron flag, the pink and green flags have become one. He said that even though he went to the Bhagyalaxmi temple to sort things out regarding the flood relief, the chief minister did not take up the challenge and did not turn up to reveal the truth. "One minister is saying that we are making the election a war between India and Pakistan. I want to ask him where is Bhagyalaxmi temple located? Is it in Pakistan?" he questioned.
Taking strong objection to Sanjay's comments, Minister K.T. Rama Rao took to Twitter. "Surgical strike on Hyderabad?! Has this person gone completely insane for a few votes & seats!! @kishanreddybjp Garu, you are MoS for Home Affairs. Do you condone your colleague MP's reprehensible, hate-filled statements? #NoHatePolitics #HyderabadFirst (sic)" he tweeted.
