“The partisan attitude of Telangana Police is highly condemnable. They are not doing their duty in a fair manner and showing disrespect towards the Constitution. The laws and rules are equal for everyone and they must be applied without showing any favour or discrimination. However, Telangana Police gave an impression as if TRS and BJP are natural repellants of Coronavirus and their meetings are safe while Covid will get active only if Congress holds any meeting,” he said.
He alleged that CM KCR was restricting the basic movement of Congress leaders through illegal arrests. “Today Congress MLC Jeevan Reddy was arrested in Nizamabad while he was on his way to Bheemgal Babapur to meet the family of lady teacher Smt. Saraswati who committed suicide after she was forcibly transferred to other district as per the GO 317. Is it a crime to meet the family members of those who committed suicide? Are we not allowed to express condolences and extend our support to such families?” he asked.
“TPCC President Revanth Reddy, myself and several other senior leaders were placed under house arrest on December 31 so as to prevent us from leaving for Bhupalpally to participate in a ‘Rachabanda’ programme to speak with farmers. We’ve been facing this situation for a long time. CM KCR is throttling the democracy by suppressing the voice of the main opposition Congress party. We are gathering the entire data and we might approach the court seeking legal remedy against this discriminatory attitude of Telangana Police,” he alleged.
Shabbir Ali said that the Congress party has a long history of bringing down the ‘dictators’ on their knees. “CM KCR, in his arrogance, might misuse the police and other resources to target the Congress party. However, the Chief Minister cannot stop the Congress leaders from raising the public issues in the most aggressive form. KCR is underestimating the strength of the Congress party. By highlighting BJP in Telangana, KCR is apparently giving an impression that he was so powerful that he can pick his opposition. Let TRS-BJP jointly play a full-season of their dramas on their ACP (Always Cheating People) Platform to deceive the public. But the Congress party will release its blockbuster in 2023 elections,” he said. (PMI)
