Nizamabad/Hyderabad: BJP senior leader, former Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya said that he would work for the party and not for posts.

“The BJP high command has decided to utilise my services for the party and not in the government,” Mr Dattatreya said in his first reaction following his resignation from the Cabinet.

 

He refuted the allegations of Opposition parties that a BC leader had been “dishonoured.”

“Being an ideological party, the BJP leadership will decide where a member will work,” he said.

He said everyone from an activist to a minister should abide by party directives.
Mr Dattatreya was speaking after meeting BJP leaders of Nizamabad, Kamareddy, Adilabad, Nirmal and Jagtial districts here on Sunday to mobilise people for Union minister Rajnath Singh’s meeting on September 17.

Mr Dattatreya said that Telangana Liberation Day should be conducted officially on September 17. “Marking Liberation Day is not against Muslims, it reflects the history of the princely state of Hyderabad” he said. Not only atrocities of the Razakars, youths should know about the regime of the Asaf Jahis, he said.

 

Dattatreya finds new supporters

TPCC leaders and BC organisations took umbrage at the sacking of Mr Bandaru Dattatreya.

Telangana Kuruma Maha Vedika  representatives J. Ravinder and K. Narender, said Mr Dattatreya was the only Union minister from the sheep rearing community, his removal did great injustice to the 50-lakh members of  the community.

BC Welfare Associa-tion president Jajula Srinivas Goud said the BJP had lost credibility among BCs.

Former Congress MP V. Hanumantha Rao said injustice was done to Mr Dattatreya and the people of the state would teach Prime Minister Narendra Modi a lesson.

 

TPCC spokesperson Kanagala Mahesh said not inducting any other BJP leader from the state in the Union Cabinet was an insult to the state and its people.
