Charminar: Along with 200 of his followers, the BJP state vice president and Hyderabad city in charge M A Qavi Abbasi joined Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) in the presence of party president Prof Kodandaram on Wednesday.
According to reports this would be a big loss to the saffron party, which was trying to woo minority leaders by recently organising an iftar at its state headquarters during Ramzan. Abbasi, an advocate, was also active in the area and was recently in the lime light after he lodged a complaint against Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for his alleged derogatory remarks on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. A resident of Moghalpura, Abbasi earlier contested as MLA from Musheerabad and as corporator from other locations.
Speaking to The Hans India, he cited several reasons including the handling of Asifa’s alleged rape and murder case by the Union government and latest being withdrawing support to PDP and implementation of Governor’s rule in Jammu & Kashmir. “Even though the party claims to be democratic in nature, but dalits and Muslims are kept aloof whenever important meetings takes place.
I am not satisfied with the decision-making process being rested with a few upper caste leaders during important meetings,” he said. He chose to join Kodandaram’s party as it was secular in nature unlike BJP, which was always commanded by RSS. The TJS has more transparent approach vis-a-vis different communities.
