Controversial BJP legislator from Hyderabad, Raja Singh, has accused the TRS government in Telangana of being 'anti-Hindu' and said that the city police must book the CPI (M) party for using loudspeakers during the party's 22nd Congress in the city.
Posting a video of a CPI (M) rally in Dilshuknagar, which shows several people dressed in red and taking out a rally with party flags, as loud music blared from a loudspeaker mounted on top of a vehicle.
Accusing Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao of only putting restrictions for Hindu festivals, the Goshamahal MLA said that the TRS didn't have any problem if the Left parties violate Supreme Court guidelines.
"Will the police act on this?" he questioned.
The MLA was referring to two police complaints that were lodged against him last month after he allegedly made provocative statements during a rally held on the eve of Ram Navami.
The first complaint was filed by Charminar MLA Ahmed Pasha Qadri from the AIMIM, who approached the police and demanded that strict action must be taken against the Goshamahal legislator.
Qadri approached the Charminar police and submitted the 'provocative' video where Raja Singh was seen challenging the police to impose a ban on loudspeakers during the Ram Navami procession. He is also reported to have used drones to film the event, without police permission.
According to reports, Qadri said that such statements by an elected representative would affect the peace and tranquillity in the city, besides disturbing communal harmony.
Meanwhile, another complaint was lodged with the Rein Bazaar police by an activist of Majlis Bachao Tahreek (MBT).
The complainant, identified as Mohammed Iqbal Asif, said that he came across the same video going viral on social media, and approached the police stating that the BJP MLA's comments could spread hatred between communities, adding that his religious sentiments were hurt.
