Police deny permission to BJP meet

By Our Staff Reporter

NALGONDA, SEPT. 16. The district police decided to prevent the Bharatiya Janata Party activists from entering the Police Parade Grounds in the town to mark the Telangana Liberation Day on Friday by hoisting the national flag

The Superintendent of Police, N. Balasubramanyam, rejected an application submitted by the district unit of the BJP seeking permission to hoist the Tri-colour.

Speaking to The Hindu tonight, the SP said he would not allow the activists to storm into the grounds "as it is my duty to protect the sanctity of the parade grounds.'' He revealed that about 400 armed personnel would be deployed at ten strategic points in the town to stop the activists.

Appeal to activists

"We hoist the flag on Republic day, Independence day, October 21 (Martyrs' day) and November 1 (AP formation day) with the `salaami sastr' involving 72 personnel. It is not possible to give special permission for any one to hoist the flag," he reasoned.

"We appeal to them not to violate the rules. If they do not pay heed to our advice, we won't hesitate to use force to prevent them,'' Mr. Balasubramanyam added.
