Amid the Congress demanding the Hyderabad Parade Ground to hold a public rally in the state on Telangana Liberation Day, Nizamabad MP and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Dharampuri Arvind said that the venue for the official event, Parade Ground, will not be shared with any political party since it is a Central government program.
“It is an official program. It is a defence property. The Central government is doing this. Why would we give it to any random party?” the Nizamabad MP said while speaking to ANI.
Slamming the Congress, the BJP leader said, “It is Formation Day. You people have been here in government for ages. What have you done since? Why didn’t you celebrate when you were in power? You answer that first. Why should the Parade Ground be given to some random political party for its political event?”
“…It is kind of an independence day for Telangana. So is that important or random politics of Congress important?” he added.
Earlier on Thursday, Telangana BJP spokesperson NV Subhash also slammed the Congress for asking for the Parade Ground to hold a public rally.
“They(Congress) keep blaming BJP for not giving them Parade Grounds for its public rally. However, if they can remember, in 2022 when the Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited, he made it very clear that every year the Liberation Day will be celebrated officially on behalf of the Government of India in Parade Grounds. There are a lot of other grounds. Let the Congress organise their meeting elsewhere,” the Telangana BJP spokesperson said.
On September 17, 2022, the government of India announced official celebrations on Telangana Liberation Day on a grand scale at Secunderabad Parade Ground with Union Home Minister Amit Shah attending as the chief guest. There were official ceremonies and march past by Central security force contingents and Shah addressed an impressive public rally later.
This year, too, the Centre chose to hold celebrations in Hyderabad on September 17
