J P Nadda, the BJP’s president, called the police action “democracy murder.”
Nadda claimed that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who is also the leader of the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), acted out of dissatisfaction following the BJP’s victory in a recent bypoll (Huzurabad) and the widespread public support for the party in the state.
The reason for Kumar’s Arrest
The arrest of Kumar in Karimnagar was on several counts. It includes violation of the Disaster Management Act and Indian Penal Code Section 188. This was after his planned demonstration called off on Sunday due to suspected violations of COVID-19 guidelines.
The arrest was on Sunday night as he prepared to participate in a ‘Jagarana’ protest. This was in support of teachers and other government employees who were protesting a State government directive.
According to the State BJP president, the order harms the interests of teachers and other staff in terms of transfers.
On Sunday night, tensions rose inside Kumar’s Karimnagar camp office when police forcibly entered, busting open the office gates in the face of BJP supporters’ resistance.
The planned rally received no official authorization, according to police. The assembly of party workers was in violation of instructions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The BJP called the arrest of the State Party Chief unconstitutional and promised to fight it, as well as assist teachers and other government employees.
