Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], July 11 (ANI): Telangana Bharatiya Janata Party chief Spokesperson K Krishna Saagar Rao on Friday slammed the state Government for demolishing Hindu Temple in secretariat complex on July 7.
Rao said, "Destroying a temple is a blasphemy. KCR government has undertaken an insulting and insinuating act of demolishing Hindu's religious place of worship unilaterally."
According to Rao, the state government has considered neither the sanctity of the temple, emotions of those who pray there nor the sentiments of the Hindus in the state.
"BJP considers this brazen and mindless demolition as an insult to the pious sentiments of Hindus, said Rao adding, "BJP demands Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to visit the demolished site personally and apologize for the government's action."
BJP also demands that a new temple should be constructed in the same place by the state government with immediate effect, he added.
BJP, in a statement, warned the state government of serious consequences and backlash from Hindus across the state of Telangana for demolishing a Hindu temple in the state secretariat complex.
The Telangana State Government authorities started demolishing all the blocks in the secretariat from July 6 after High Court has given clearance on the construction of the new secretariat.
The ruling TRS Government had decided to construct a new secretariat complex after demolishing the existing secretariat. The new secretariat will be constructed at a cost of Rs 400 crore. In June 2019 Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had laid the Foundation stone for construction of a new secretariat. (ANI)
