Hyderabad: State BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar assured the family members of persons lodged in jail in connection with the communal violence in Bhainsa that the party would extend necessary help once they are released from jail.
Four persons from Nirmal are still in prison for the last seven months after the Preventive Detention (PD) Act was invoked against them. On the 26th day of his ‘Praja Sangrama’ yatra, Sanjay met with the family members of the four persons in Kamareddy district.
Interacting with the family, Sanjay promised to take care of the families. “We will take the responsibility of providing jobs to them once they are released from prison,” he said, adding that the party would take necessary steps to get bail for the four persons.
He recalled the sacrifice made by police constable P Kistaiah from Kamareddy for the cause of separate Telangana during the agitation in December 2009. Speaking to the farmers, he alleged that the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY), a Central government-sponsored crop insurance scheme, was not extended to farmers in the State for political reasons.
Sanjay later interacted with passengers at the TSRTC bus station in the district. He took objection to the practice nowadays of some people particularly politicians taking part in ‘Bhathukamma’ festival wearing slippers.
