An FIR has been registered against BJP MP Tejasvi Surya for illegally entering Hyderabad’s Osmania University without permission while campaigning for Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation Elections scheduled in December. The FIR has been registered by the registrar of the university.
Telangana Police chief Mahender Reddy on Thursday said that the BJP MP has been booked for criminal trespass.
Notably, the young politician has been extensively campaigning for the civic polls in Hyderabad, which is going to be held in December amid the coronavirus pandemic. During his campaigning, he has made several controversial remarks against the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti.
Tejasvi Surya has also attacked Hyderabad MP and AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi during his campaigning for the civic elections.
The Bengaluru MP had on Tuesday entered the Osmania University campus along with his supporters by removing the barricades erected at the NCC gate. Thereafter, he also delivered an address at the Arts College.
OU Registrar Dr Ch Gopal Reddy said, “There was no permission to conduct the event. Such events are not allowed in the university. On directions from Vice-Chancellor, we filed a complaint with the police.”
In 2017, the OU administration had banned political activities in the campus issuing a circular saying “activities which are unrelated to academics will not be permitted on the campus”.
Tejasvi Surya attacks govt on social media
The BJP MP also launched an attack on the ruling dispensation in Telangana on social media. He posted a series of tweets attacking the government.
He tweeted: “Try how much ever you want, KCR Garu, but you can’t stop BJYM from paying respects to Telangana martyrs. You are in power today because of sacrifice of thousands of common students of Telangana. Please don’t forget their sacrifices!
He also said, “BJYM is power of youth of India! No fences, no barricades, no police force can stop us from doing the right thing. The more you try to stop us, the more powerful will be our fight back! Jai Telangana!”
