Telangana BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar begins yatra amidst big show, hits out at CM K Chandrasekhar Rao | Hyderabad News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: Surrounded by thousands of party workers, Telangana BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Saturday commenced his Praja Sangrama Yatra from Bhagyalakshmi temple in Charminar. Addressing the large gathering, Sanjay vowed to liberate the state from “family and dictatorial rule” of K Chandrasekhar Rao and usher in a democratic government.
Kicking off his 55-day padayatra from the AIMIM’s bastion of Old City in the presence of national and state leaders, Sanjay said the BJP was the only party that would work for Hindu dharma and make every Hindu proud.
Sanjay said BJP’s aim was to oust a party (read AIMIM) with a “Taliban-like mindset” and those who align with it. Seeking a response from the crowd, he roared: “You want a party of workers who support the Taliban or a party that works for people of Telangana?”
Bandi challenges CM to organise Shobha yatra from Old City
As loud slogans of ‘Bharat mata ki jai’, ‘Jai Hind’ and ‘Jai Sri Ram’ rent the air, Bandi Sanjay said: “Whose adda is pata basthi (Old City)? Telangana is our state. We can come to any street… we can come to any corner.” Claiming that the BJP had never opposed Muslim festivals like Eid or Bakrid or Iftar parties, he wondered: “Has any AIMIM leader ever welcomed Ganesh Shobha Yatra? KCR has criticised Hindus as thugs.”
Throwing a challenge to the CM, he said: “If you are really a Hindu, do you have the guts to organise Shobha Yatra and Hanuman Jayanti from the Old City.”
Party workers decorated the surroundings of the Charminar with BJP hoardings, flexis and saffron flags. Before Sanjay hit the road for his padayatra, he took the blessings of goddess Bhagyalakshmi at the temple.
He said his padayatra was aimed at forming a democratic and ‘pro-poor’ government in the state. “My yatra will send shock waves through the government. The TRS president cheated the people by making false promises during the elections and confines himself to his Erravelli farmhouse,” the BJP leader said.
Lashing out at TRS, Sanjay said: “Telangana state was achieved because of the sacrifices of thousands of people. But, only one family is ruling and no section of the people is happy with the governance in the past seven years. Time has come to boot out the government.”
He said the TRS had promised to extend unemployment allowance to the youth but failed to implement the same for the past three years. Over 25 lakh people had registered themselves with TSPSC but job notifications were a far cry. “KCR was responsible for the suicides of several unemployed youth. Even RTC workers and Intermediate students died by suicides during TRS ruling.”
He said KCR was now talking about Dalit Bandhu scheme. “But, where is 125-ft Ambedkar statue as promised? Instead of the statue, he constructed Pragati Bhavan with 100 rooms. What happened to the Dalit CM promise after achieving Telangana state,” he wondered.
Sanjay will resume his yatra from Mehdipatnam on Sunday.
