Hyderabad: At a high level meeting with police officials on law and order situation, Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) felt that there are chances of communal violence in Hyderabad and across state. He has directed police officials to deal strictly and firm action shall be taken on the anarchic forces who are trying to incite communal tensions and clashes in the city and other parts of State.
This is in regards to the aggressive camping with war of words between major parties which is leading to a tense situation as words are aiming at the sensitivities of the communities with controversial statements like ‘surgical strike’ and demolitions of leaders idols at Tank bund.
KCR said that a few parties are trying to gain political mileage during GHMC elections through bizarre communal statements.
For the sake of political mileage
During GHMC elections, for the sake of political mileage, few leaders are indulging in conspiracies. They first used social media, later they tried to morph photos and divert people, now they are provoking voters through harsh, arrogant speeches, KCR said. He thanked people for not falling into their trap and directed police to crush such type of anti-social elements with iron hand.
They want to create unrest in Hyderabad by using places of worship, not only in Hyderabad but also in places like Karimnagar,Warangal and Khammam. They want to postpone GHMC elections, I have definite information, KCR further said.
Law & Order important
“Telangana Government’s top priority is to maintain law and order in the State which is thriving in peace and harmony. It is the safest place in the world and investments are coming in a big way with employment chances growing. At this time, it is my duty to look after and safeguard the State and people should lead happy life, CM said.
He urged the people of Hyderabad not to fall prey by these misleading elements and said to be cautious and alert. He also directed leaders of all political parties to fight in a democratic way rather than using communities and religions for poll sake
KCR also urged people to be alert and cautious against those trying to spread communal hatred and clashes. He wanted people, especially the youth, to be cautious and not fall prey to those elements, which would try to whip up communal feelings. He also appealed to political parties to wage a democratic fight in the polls in a transparent manner.
