BJP Says TRS Creating Hurdles In Ganpati Visarjan At Tank Bund In Hyderabad

Hyderabad: Telangana BJP President Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Monday warned the state government against creating hurdles in the Ganesh visarjan at Tank Bund in Hyderabad on the pretext of Supreme Court orders.

Speaking to media persons, Bandi Sanjay said it was unfortunate that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government had been creating a tense atmosphere every year during the immersion of Ganesh idols. The government had been conspiring to create hurdles to the festivities on the pretext of environmental pollution.

“The devotees are forced to take permission from the revenue, police, fire and electricity departments to celebrate the festivities in public. Even after taking all these permissions, the authorities are creating hurdles for the Ganesh NImajjanam festivities. The government has been projecting celebration of any Hindu festival as a law and order issue,” he alleged.

The BJP president wondered why the government had not made arrangements for the Ganesh visarjan even three days after the commencement of the festivities. “Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar, who is notorious for violating the court orders regularly, is showing the Supreme Court orders as an excuse to stall the visarjan programme,” he said.

He reminded that during the severe Covid-19 pandemic, too, the government had allowed rallies by the Muslims on the occasion of Ramzan festival in the Old City of Hyderabad. “We did not raise any objection when the government distributed almonds and pistachios to the Muslims. But at the same time, it had grossly neglected the people undergoing treatment for Covid-19 in Gandhi Hospital,” he said.

Sanjay said that the BJP wants to conduct the 10-day-long Ganesh festivities in a peaceful atmosphere. However, the Bhagyanagar Ganesh Utsav Samithi made all the arrangements for the visarjan, the government was not making any arrangements citing Supreme Court directions.

“We won’t tolerate if the government doesn’t cooperate with the devotees in immersing the Ganesh idols at their convenience. We shall take up the fight for nimajjanam to Pragati Bhavan. The Hindu community is not afraid of KCR, who is trying to create a law and order situation to garner votes of one particular community,” he said, adding that the devotees will go with the immersion in Hussainsagar regardless of what happened.
