Hyderabad: State BJP leaders on Wednesday invited the order of the Telangana High Court routing the State government to commemorate the Republic Day.
Union Minister for Culture as well as Tourism G Kishan Reddy charged Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao of ‘disparaging the Constitution’.
“No CM in the country has ever behaved like KCR, who wants to rule the State like a king in Nizam’s-style. “The CM is playing weird national politics; the State’s photo is losing because of the Kalwakuntla household,” he asserted.
Reddy said arrests of the Opposition leaders and members of civil society organisations have become the order of the day. “It is unfavorable that every single time individuals needed to go to the HC to look for consent to convene as well as padayatras. Every State starts the budget plan speech with Governor’s address. But, KCR is the only special situation in the country to differ the well established practices, he criticised.
MP Dr K Laxman welcing the court order, claimed “chiefs of armed forces, police and people celebrate the Republic Day, which reflects their hopes and aspirations. But Nizam-style of CM’s feudal rule tried to distance and deprive people of the RD celebrations. It is frivolous on the part of the State government to argue that the Covid code is in force for not celebrating the RD.
State BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar strongly condemned the government decision not to hold ceremonial RD celebrations at Secunderabad parade grounds every year.
Describing the decision as undemocratic and against the spirit of the Constitution, he said, “It’s a clear situation of conspiracy theory to cut the constitutional duties of the Governor,” he claimed.
Former MLC N Ramachander Rao asked whether RD is suggested to be commemorated within 4 wall surfaces? He claimed not holding the RD ceremony would certainly be a disrespect to soldiers, police as well as pupils.
