BJP lawmaker from Secunderabad Bandaru Dattatreya on Sunday courted controversy by alleging that Hyderabad is a ‘safe haven for Islamic terrorist activities’. Dattatreya’s statement comes two days after the NIA conducted searches at two locations in Hyderabad in connection with an Islamic State module case. He blamed the KCR government for not taking action as it was ‘aligned’ with the Owaisi-led All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).
“Recent investigations of NIA reveal that Hyderabad is a safe haven for Islamic terrorist activities. A large number of people are being recruited in Hyderabad,” said Dattatreya.
“The areas where Rohingyas have been living are becoming prime locations for such incidents. Such illegal migrants in the country should be immediately identified and sent back,” he demanded.
“TRS government is aligned with AIMIM that is why the police are sometimes unable to take stern action. I demand that the state government forms a special cell under a DG or IG rank official for the investigation of these activities,” the Secunderabad MP added.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had recently claimed that TRS president and Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR) may be the ‘driver of the car’ but the steering is actually controlled by AIMIM.
