KTR cites law and order concerns for not allowing Hyderabad rally against Naidu’s arrest.

The Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), the ruling party in Telangana, regarded the arrest of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu as a political matter between two parties in Andhra Pradesh. They justified their refusal to permit rallies in Hyderabad by citing concerns about potential law and order issues within the Telangana capital.

KT Rama Rao, the working President of BRS, emphasized that his party maintained a neutral stance, despite some individual BRS leaders condemning Naidu’s arrest in Andhra Pradesh. He clarified that this issue pertained exclusively to the political dynamics of Andhra Pradesh, with no relevance or impact on Telangana or its citizens. According to him, Telangana and its people were unaffected by developments in other states like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, or Chhattisgarh.

In response to protests by Naidu’s supporters, including IT employees, in Hyderabad’s IT corridor, KTR expressed that such rallies should occur in Andhra Pradesh, where the arrest took place, rather than in Hyderabad. He referenced the past decision of the Telangana government to restrict rallies in the IT corridor during the Telangana movement to prevent disruptions to IT services.

KTR argued that allowing one party’s rallies might lead to counter-rallies, creating a platform for their conflicts in Hyderabad, which should be avoided. He also highlighted the sensitive nature of the subjudice issue and questioned the need for daily commentary. KTR maintained that he had amicable relations with figures from Andhra Pradesh, including Naidu’s son Lokesh, Chief Minister Jagan, and Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan, and saw no need for disputes spilling over into Telangana.

Regarding Lokesh’s query about the denial of rally permissions, KTR explained that granting permission to one party could lead to multiple rallies and compromise law and order in Hyderabad. He emphasized the importance of maintaining peace and harmony in Hyderabad, given the significant investments made by people from Andhra Pradesh in the city. The BRS’s stance aimed to ensure the security of these investments and the future well-being of the region.
