Laxman condemns TRS leaders’ comments against Telangana Vimochana Yatra
The BJP state president, K Laxman, has taken serious exception to the TRS leaders’ allegations that Telangana Vimochana Yatra by BJP was aimed at dividing the society.
Jangaon: The BJP state president, K Laxman, has taken serious exception to the TRS leaders’ allegations that Telangana Vimochana Yatra by BJP was aimed at dividing the society.
He retorted by saying it was the TRS party and its government dividing the society by offering religion-based reservations against the guidelines of Indian constitution and vote bank politics.
He had a brief halt at Jangaon while going towards Bhairanpally in Maddur mandal as part of the yatra on Monday.
Speaking to presspersons, he reminded that the Chief Minister, K Chandrashekar Rao, during statehood movement demanded the former AP CM K Rosaiah to celebrate Telangana Liberation Day officially.
Laxman posed ‘How could the TRS leaders now blame the BJP of dividing the society for making the same demand?’ He wanted the CM to tell to the people in the State why he backtracked from his stand regarding the Liberation Day.
The CM must introspect and honour the sacrifices made by scores of martyrs for the liberation of Telangana from tyrannical Nizams. It was highly objectionable to depict Vimochana Yatra in religious angle as respect for martyrs has nothing to do with religion, he noted.
The three years rule of TRS government has only benefitted contractors and political opportunists, who jumped into the ruling party to amass wealth. The public have been watching the misdeeds of the government and would teach a lesson at right time, he warned.
Later addressing a gathering at Bhairanpally, Laxman wanted the Sstate government to develop the village and to include the history of the villagers’ fight against Razakars of Nizams in school syllabus. The government was trying to create hurdles in the Vimochana Yatra, he alleged.
Laxman maintained that if the TRS government decides to celebrate Liberation Day officially, the state BJP would invite the PM Narendra Modi to attend the programme. Even if the TRS failed to celebrate the event officially, the BJP would organise massive programmes on September 17, he asserted.
“Before the government distributes sarees to women on the occasion of Bathukamma, it must snap its connection with MIM party, the heir of Nizams, who forced women celebrate Bathukamma nakedly,” Laxman averred.
The party leaders M Dharma Rao, KVL Reddy and others were present.
