MP Bandi Sanjay was not involved in any unruly protest, when he was pushed and shoved into a police vehicle in the pretext of a preventive arrest.
If police had any grounds for his arrest, they could have very well done it without having to use brute force. The videos in the mainstream and social media clearly show unwarranted and unacceptable excessive force being used by police.
BJP also deplores targeted police raids on Dubbaka BJP candidate Raghunandan Rao. BJP wonders, if State Election Commission has become a puppet in the hands of KCR’s Government !
Is Telangana police acting independently or with the permission of SEC, as mandated during the enforcement of election code ? How can police raids override the rights of candidate’s family members and restrain them from making even phone calls ? Are the police working for SEC or TRS party ? Who are they trying to appease ?
BJP demands SEC to wake up and take control of the situation which is deteriorating day by day in Dubbaka, with highhandedness & police harrassment of our candidate by not allowing him to have a level playing field in this By-Election.
