Nadda calls Bandi Sanjay arrest a murder of democracy

Bandi Sanjay Kumar was taken into custody on Sunday for allegedly violating govt\'s guidelines to curb Covid-19 spread

HYDERABAD: The arrest of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Telangana unit president Bandi Sanjay Kumar was highly condemnable and it amounted to the murder of democracy, said national president J.P. Nadda. He said Sanjay Kumar was peacefully staging a protest following all Covid-19 protocols in his office when the police forcibly entered his office and manhandled him.

Nadda said the K. Chandrashekar Rao government had gone mad seeing BJP's victory in recent bypolls and the support that their party was receiving in Telangana.

The BJP chief said, "We will take all legal and democratic recourse against the police action."

In a statement issued here on Monday, Nadda said, "The BJP leaders and workers firmly resolved to continue with their fight and struggle against the anti-people policies of the KCR government with full strength and vigour. The BJP will continue its fight in a democratic manner and will rest only after uprooting the aggressive and undemocratic KCR government.”

The KCR government was highly perturbed and worried over the growing popularity and acceptability of the BJP in the state, Nadda claimed.

He further said out of desperation, the KCR government was resorting to such inhuman and unconstitutional activities by targeting the BJP leaders and workers. The BJP and its leaders were not scared by derogatory and unconstitutional acts of the Telangana government, Nadda said.
