Hyderabad: BJP state unit president Bandi Sanjay on Friday promised to unleash bulldozers to demolish the properties of the accused in crimes against women, if the party formed government in the state.
Sanjay reiterated that a BJP government would deal strictly with the accused in crimes against women. "We will bulldoze the houses of accused in rape and murder cases like in Uttar Pradesh," he said, after touring Jagtial and Karimnagar districts and interacted with party leaders.
Reacting to BRS MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha’s proposed dharna in New Delhi on women reservations, Sanjay suggested she ask her father, Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, how many women were nominated for Assembly elections, and why he had not inducted women into his first Cabinet.
Kavitha had never responded when women faced atrocities, he claimed and added that the National Crime Records Bureau had reported a 17 per cent increase in crimes. BRS leaders were involved in atrocities against women, he alleged.
"Why is the BRS government disrespecting the woman Governor," he asked.
He said Muslim women strongly believed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was working in their favour. The BJP had won the Northeast states elections with the support of Muslim women, he said.
On other issues, Sanjay asked MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi to contest all 119 Assembly constituencies in the state and said the BJP would ensure everyone lost their deposit. He called the MIM a "parasite" that depended on Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao.
He said that MIM always backed the ruling party in the state for its vested interests. He asked the MIM leadership why the Old City of Hyderabad had not developed so far. He alleged that MIM leaders sheltered terrorists and backed the enemy country.
On the BRS protest against hike in LPG prices, he pointed out that the BRS government had increased electricity charges 10 times and RTC bus fares seven times. "We are also worrying over the hike in LPG prices, but it was caused due to the Russia-Ukraine war," Sanjay claimed. He assured that BJP when it formed government in the state would slash VAT on petrol and diesel.
He demanded that the government release a White Paper on central funds that have been released to local bodies. Chandrasekhar Rao had failed to prove 24x7 power supply to agriculture
