Akbaruddin Owaisi, BJP’s Bandi Sanjay Booked For Inciting Speeches In Hyderabad
Hyderabad: AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi was on Saturday booked for his comments on the samadhis of former Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao and TDP founder N T Rama Rao. On the other hand, the city police also booked a suo motu case against Bandi Sanjay Kumar of the BJP for his retort to it. The two firebrand politicians delivered inciting speeches while canvassing for the forthcoming high stakes Hyderabad civic body polls.
“We have filed suo motu cases on Sanjay and Owaisi,” confirmed Hyderabad west zone deputy commissioner of police (DCP) A. R. Srinivas to IANS.
Srinivas said both the leaders were booked for making provocative speeches recently during political meetings.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the All India Majilis – e – Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) leaders were booked under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section 501.
Akbaruddin Owaisi, younger brother of AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi, courted a controversy on November 25, asking whether the ‘samadhis’ of former Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao and TDP founder N T Rama Rao on Hussain Sagar lake bank would be removed as he questioned the eviction drive against “poor people” residing near water bodies.
The AIMIM leader, addressing a public meeting here on Wednesday in the run up to the December 1 Greater Hyderabad Municipal Elections, claimed that the banks of the lake was spread over 4,700 acres when it was built by saint Hussain Shah Wali, but was now not even 700 acres. He said it had become a road, with shops and samadhis of the two leaders there, as also the Lumbini Park.
To this, State BJP president and MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar had retaliated that Darussalam, where AIMIM party headquartered will be demolished within two hours after that. Without naming Akbaruddin, had in a sharp retort asked if he has the guts to demolish the samadhis.
