Money Heist in Hyd: Red jumpsuit-clad protestors pop up at banks, railway stations with anti-Modi placards

Hyderabad: Several people dressed in red jumpsuits and wearing a Dali mask, the costume made popular by the Netflix Spanish crime drama 'Money Heist', were spotted outside banks, petrol pumps, and railway stations in Hyderabad on the morning of 2 July.

The people in the red jumpsuits are allegedly Telangana Rashtra Samithi party workers. These youngsters who took to Hyderabad streets holding placards with one common message: "We only rob banks. You rob the whole nation. #ByeByeModi."

The masked people were spotted at petrol bunks; BHEL; BSNL telephone exchange; Secunderabad and Kacheguda railway stations; outside ICICI, SBI, and PNB banks; and many places in Vasanthalipuram. They were also spotted in Zaaheerabad in the Sangareddy district.

They reportedly stood at their designated places for a while, silently, in the early morning on Saturday. Several TRS leaders and the public shared their photos and videos on Twitter.

According to sources, TRS has been on an agressive campaign with such creative posters.

This is not the first time that 'Money Heist' has been referenced ahead of Mr. Modi's visit. On Thursday, a massive hoarding accusing Mr. Modi of robbing the nation was put up in LB Nagar. The hoarding features a 'Money Heist' poster and reads, "Mr. N. Modi, we only rob bank, you rob the whole nation."

A hoarding war is currently ongoing in the city. BJP hoardings with photos of Mr. Modi and other BJP leaders have been placed on the sides of roads and near Metro pillars. Most of the BJP banners are not on billboards but have been placed as standalone cut-outs. BJP has alleged that TRS spent Rs. 23 crores to book all Metro pillars and other advertising spots in the GHMC limits.

On the other hand, there are multiple billboards across several parts of the city criticising Mr. Modi who is visiting the city on 2 and 3 July. The anti-Modi hoardings are placed strategically along roads/pathways that the PM and other BJP members will take after landing at the Hyderabad airport.

In response to the Money Heist Mascots, BJP party supporters have edited the matter on placards to replace 'bye bye modi'. They have also made ictures unmasking the masked men with KCR's face.

On the other hand, National President of BJP Yuva Morcha Tejasvi Surya said that KCR and TRS have 'hit a new low' in view of the posters. "Want to remind them that all those who have employed such language in past against Sri @narendramodi Ji have been decimated politically," he said.
