Hyderabad: Union Minister Faggan Singh Kulasthe was the chief guest at the kite festival organised by the State BJP on Necklace Road on Tuesday in connection with the Sankranti Festival. State party president Dr K Laxman was among the leaders like N Ramchandar Rao, MLC, Amar Singh Lilavath, M Narsimhulu, who actively participated in the festivities and flew kites.
Addressing the gathering, Dr Laxman conveyed Bhogi, Sankranti, Kanuma greetings to Telugus across the world. He called for celebration of the festival which reflects the Telugu culture, while wishing that the Telugu people live in all happiness with health and wealth.
Dr Laxman stated that it was a matter of pleasure that the Bharatiya Yuva Morcha and Mahila Morcha were organising the Sankranti festivities with devotion towards the country while expressing solidarity with the decisions taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah. 'This is a matter of pride of the Telugu people', he observed.
The State BJP chief accused some political parties of resorting to misinformation with regard to some programmes taken up by the party in 'national interest'. He alleged that the Congress, 'which divided the country,' and 'communal' AIMIM were supporting these parties, while the TRS was seeking to "sow poisonous tendencies among people."
Referring to the violence in Bhainsa, Dr Laxman blamed some communal elements for targeting a section of the people and resorting to attacks on the eve of Sankranti festival. He accused the police of adopting only a spectator's role during the violent incidents.
The BJP leaders wondered how the MIM candidate could get elected unanimously in Bhainsa, and claimed that the TRS had totally surrendered to the Majlis party.
Dr Laxman strongly objected to the efforts to prevent BJP MP Soyam Bapu Rao and Ramchandar Rao from consoling the Bhainsa violence victims 'as not proper.' He demanded stringent action against those who resorted to violence there.
The State BJP chief also questioned the 'lenient attitude' of TRS towards communal elements. He pointed out that people were noticing the dual stand of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, and warned that the ruling party would be wiped out in Telangana if it did not change its 'double standards.'
