Temple, mosques at Telangana secretariat razed, Congress, BJP say superstitious KCR’s days are numbered

The demolition of Nalla Pochamma Temple and two mosques at the secretariat complex in Hyderabad has turned into a political war with opposition BJP and Congress calling it a ‘Black Day’ in the history of Telangana.

Congress working president and MP A Revanth Reddy has alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has shown that his own sentiments and superstitions were much above the religious sentiments of all other communities.

“Secretariat complex, along with Nalla Pochamma Temple and two mosques, were being demolished only to satisfy the superstitious beliefs of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) who wants his son K Tarakarama Rao (KTR) to become the next CM,” said the Congress MP.

Reddy also claimed that it’s a superstitious belief that all chief ministers who worked from “vaastu unfit” secretariat were unable to provide a safe political carrier for their son and this is the actual reason behind the demolition.

The Congress leader has further said that as per the directions of Supreme Court, no permanent structure can be built near Hussainsagar and announced that he would move the Supreme Court against the demolition.

He also questioned on Hyderabad MP and AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi for not protesting against the demolition of mosques. He also demanded that Secunderabad MP and Union Minister G Kishan Reddy must speak on this issue.

Pointing at the historic significance of the secretariat building, Reddy said 16 chief ministers of the state carried out their duties from the same secretariat complex without any hindrance.

“By demolishing the old secretariat, KCR has tried not only to erase the history, but also attacked the heritage, culture, beliefs and popular sentiments,” said Revanth Reddy.

He also pointed out that while most of the blocks in the secretariat were recently constructed or renovated at a huge cost and they were in perfect working conditions, now crores of public money were turned into debris.

The Congress leader has alleged that the demolition was carried out without taking any environmental clearances while National Green Tribunal (NGT) norms were also ignored.

Meanwhile, addressing a virtual rally BJP national general secretary P Muralidhar Rao also lashed out at the KCR government and said that his days are numbered.

“Demolishing Nalla Pochamma temple will be a curse which will haunt the KCR government and with this action he has lowered the life span of his own government,” said Muralidhar Rao.

He also questioned the hasty demolition move when the state is in the middle of a global pandemic.
