The BJP state president Bandi Sanjay led a band of unruly mobs and created a ruckus in Jangaon while another MLA Raja Singh provoked a section of society that left people furious.
Tension prevailed in the state capital Hyderabad, Jangaon, and in Karimnagar districts.
The police were on tenterhooks across the state as the BJP leaders tried every chance to perpetuate the unrest wherever possible.
In turn, Bandi Sanjay accused chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao of trying to create communal violence in the state capital. He was colluding with the MIM cadre. It was a shameless allegation against Mr KCR.
The chief minister ordered the police authorities to deploy additional forces in the Old City of Hyderabad and ensure peace, law, and order. As a result, hundreds of Central para-military forces were deployed and shops and establishments were ordered to be closed by 8 pm to prevent any untoward incident.
The police were forced to keep a strict vigil all over the state, particularly in the Old City. The cyber wing of the police had been monitoring social media keenly to know who was posting provocative messages.
The chief minister Mr K Chandrasekhar Rao held an emergency meeting on late Wednesday with top police officials and reviewed the situation in the wake of BJP MLA Raja Singh’s statements derogating the religious sentiments of a section. The BJP suspended him on the issue.
Unmindful of his remarks and the party’s action against him, MP Sanjay made further insulting statements against the chief minister Mr KCR.
