We’ll spew hatred if they pander to Muslims: Telangana BJP chief

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) State president Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Monday said that his party will definitely spew hatred if the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) continued to woo Muslims.

The Hindu nationalist leader Kumar on Monday said that BJP would “definitely provoke communal hatred” if the TRS continued to woo “a community that constituted 12 per cent of the electorate” — an obvious reference to Muslims, New Indian Express reported.

Bandi Sanjay Kumar who is a Parliament member from Karimnagar constituency, made these inflammatory comments whilr addressing a public meeting near Are Maisamma temple on Hyderabad’s outskirts on the third day of his ‘Praja Sangrama Yatra’.

He said: “Our party is being branded as one that is bent on provoking communal hatred and we will definitely do so if the TRS tries to cozy up to the outfits that represent Muslims.”

BJP chief also said that “BJP will not be on the back foot in uniting Hindus, who account for 80 per cent of the population.”

The saffron leader even said that after the BJP came to power in 2023, it would confiscate all of Nizam’s properties in the State and hand them over to the Hindu Samaj.
