New Delhi, March 5: Telangana Chief Minister KC Rao’s alleged abusive remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi sparked a massive protest by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Several BJP workers, including party’s Telangana chief K Laxman, were taken into preventive custody by the police in Hyderabad ahead of a protest march.

“BJP Telangana is demanding CM KC Rao to withdraw his words made against PM Modi. Today we have called for ‘Gherao’ of Pragati Bhawan. Police in Hyderabad have house arrested me. My fundamental rights have been curtailed by this government,” K Laxman, Telangana BJP president, told reporters.

Telangana CM KCR has rubbished the BJP’s charge that he had used any abusive words against PM Modi. The BJP has been alleging that the Telangana CM used a Telugu word during his public meeting in Karimnagar disrespecting the prime minister.

“I haven’t abused anyone. I’m PM Modi’s best friend. I sought an appointment with him in Delhi, that itself shows I have nothing against him, but he couldn’t accommodate the request for an appointment,” ANI quoted KCR, as saying.

KCR’s Third Front Call

Meanwhile, KCR’s call for a front front alternative has been welcomed by various parties including Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress. Addressing a large number of TRS workers and representatives of various organisations who had gathered at his official residence ‘Pragati Bhavan’ on Sunday (March 4), the TRS chief said West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee spoke to her over phone to convey that she will fully support him.

“Six to seven MPs from Maharashtra also called me. They said they will resign from their party the day you make a beginning,” he said without revealing the names of the party they belong to. (Also Read: Asaduddin Owaisi Seconds Telangana CM’s Call For Third Front)

He alleged that both BJP and Congress, who ruled for most of the time since independence, had miserably failed to address real issues of people, and unless an alternative emerges the country will continue to have the same politics of allegations and counter-allegations and brick-batting between them.
