Hyderabad District, August 28, 2022: The CPI (Maoist) has said that the corrupt and family rule of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) was the sole reason for the emergence of the BJP as a force in Telangana state.
In a statement, the spokesperson of Telangana State Committee of the CPI (Maoist), Comrade Jagan, said the TRS was, a few years back, a decisive supporter of the BJP and marched hand-in-hand with its economic policies. But, the TRS and BJP are now focussed on the by-election to the Munugode Assembly for the sake of preservation of politics of self-interest.
The BJP with its fascist agenda of transforming India into a fascist Hindu Rashtra concentrated on Telangana with all its strength. The Munugode by-election was a dress rehearsal for election to the State Assembly next year.
Comrade Jagan recalled that Telangana was always an inspiring symbol of Hindu-Muslim unity but relapsed into the grip of communal forces in recent days. Even in the days of Telangana armed struggle, the Muslim and Hindu peasantry marched shoulder-to-shoulder against the unjust rule of Nizam and Razakars. Telangana was nothing but a thriving Ganga-Jamuna culture. But, the BJP used the Munugode by-election to drive a wedge between people on religious lines for political power.
On the other hand, the TRS at any cost wanted to win the by-election to boost its chances in elections next year. Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy resigned his seat in Assembly to join the BJP solely to ensure that his business interests flourished.
Comrade Jagan also said the derogatory remarks of BJP MLA Raja Singh on the Prophet Mohammed were an open threat to Muslim community and dehumanized it. His suspension from BJP was an eyewash. The agenda of BJP was to communalize Telangana for its victory in Munugode. The party intended to use Telangana as its lab like it had done in Gujarat state to spill the blood of innocent people. Therefore, people in every nook and corner of Telangana must be prepared to unitedly fight against the fascist BJP forces.
