Hyderabad – The Congress party has demanded on Tuesday that BJP MLA of Goshamahal Raja Singh to be kicked out of the state Assembly for refusing to take oath in front of the Pro-Tem Speaker Mumtaz Ahmed Khan of MIM party due to his religion.
Congress spokesperson, Dr Sravan Dasoju said, “Raja Singh’s statement shows the level of hatred that he holds against the Muslim community. He does not deserve to be a Member of the Legislative Assembly, which is a symbol of democracy and secularism. He must be expelled from the House forthwith”.
Sravan also pointed out that over 43 criminal cases are booked against Raja Singh for hate-speeches, but no action has been taken yet against him.
“Why Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao was preventing the police from taking action against the BJP MLA, who crossed all the limits? Why MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi was not using his influence over the Chief Minister to send Raja Singh behind the bars for his heinous utterances?” he asked.
Sravan asked that under the former rule of Congress Government in Hyderabad, Akbaruddin Owaisi was arrested for hate-speech in Nirmal, but no action has been taken against Raja Singh so far.
“There should be zero tolerance against people who spread hatred and communalism,” he added.
Sravan also demanded BJP National president Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narender Modi to banish Raja Singh from the BJP Party.
