Protesting the externment of Sri Peetham chief Swami Paripoornananda from Hyderabad for six months, Telangana BJP leaders met Governor E S L Narasimhan and submitted a memorandum at Raj Bhavan on Wednesday evening.
They urged the Governor to make the state government order an inquiry into the house arrest of Swami Paripoornananda and his banishing from Hyderabad. They said that the action by the police against Paripoornananda violated his democratic rights.
Speaking to the media after meeting the Governor, BJLP leader G Kishan Reddy alleged that the police had misused their power in putting the seer under house arrest, and that the police needed to explain their actions. He also said that the Governor had the responsibility to provide security to the people if the state government discriminated against them in Hyderabad following the bifurcation of the state.
Reddy also pulled up the state government for failing to initiate action against the MIM party leaders when they had spoken hurting the sentiments of the Hindus, and asked the government what happened to the case filed against MIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi for making derogatory remarks against the Hindu religion.
