Case against Gujarat police resented

By Our Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD, NOV.2. The BJP on Tuesday criticised registering of a murder case against the Gujarat police and accused the State Government of trying to appease the minorities.

Addressing a press conference, the former Union Minister, B Dattatreya, the BJP floor leader in the Assembly, G. Kishan Reddy, and the State legal cell convener, N. Ramchander, condemned the attitude of the Government and demanded an explanation from the Chief Minister, Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, on the incidents in the city following the arrest of Maulana Naseeruddin by the Gujarat police.

`Complete failure'

Alleging complete failure by the Government to maintain law and order, they said the incidents near the DGP's office on Sunday brought the administration into disrepute. They maintained that it was incorrect to book a case against the Gujarat police as the firing was not "premeditated" and that the police had to act in their "right to private defence" when attacked.

The BJP leaders said the Government, instead of aiding the Gujarat police, was helping those who created "trouble" and as a result the entire police had become "nervous and helpless". The BJP had been warning from the beginning that Hyderabad was becoming a centre of ISI-sponsored activities and would become another "Afghanistan".

They had a dig at the TRS leaders for giving a "go by" to their protests on the Pulichintala and Polavaram projects as also GO 610. The Congress was trying to engineer defections from the TRS with a view to "liquidating" that party, the leaders claimed.

VHP plea

The Vishwa Hindu Parishad urged the police to arrest those who tried to forcibly take away Maulana Naseeruddin from the custody of a Gujarat police team.

In a statement here on Tuesday, the VHP State representative, B. Manikya Chary, termed unfortunate the decision of the police not to make any arrests till Ramzan festival.
