Bandi wants BRS MPs to apologise for boycotting Prez speech
NEW DELHI/HYDERABAD: BJP Telangana chief Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Tuesday demanded that BRS MPs apologise for disrespecting an Adivasi woman, referencing their boycott of President Droupadi Murmu’s joint address to the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on the first day of the Budget Session of Parliament.
Addressing mediapersons from the state at Vijay Chowk in New Delhi, Sanjay hailed the President’s speech as being inspirational, showing the rapid strides made by the nation over the past nine years and how it would emerge as a superpower in 25 years.
“If BRS MPs had any objection to any of the observations of the President, they can point them out during the discussion on the Motion of Thanks. But the BRS made very attempt to defeat Droupadi Murmu in the Presidential elections, as it has no respect for her. For that matter, it has an utter contempt towards women belonging to Dalit, Girijan and weaker sections. It is evident from the way the KCR government has been ill-treating a woman Governor, who is from a weaker section,” he alleged.
Sanjay said that the BRS was on a path of ruining itself. “KCR doesn’t give an opportunity to discuss people’s issues in the Assembly. If anybody tries to raise his or her voice, they would be suspended. The BRS MPs will not take part in discussions in Parliament because they are afraid that their own government in Telangana would get exposed for not implementing welfare schemes of the Centre,” he said.
The BJP MP also faulted the Karimnagar police for assaulting and arresting Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad activists during K.T. Rama Rao’s visit.
Sanjay said that the arrests were another ploy by the BRS to evade responsibility, as the ABVP members wanted to give a representation to Rama Rao over vacant government jobs.
