New Delhi: BJP president JP Nadda was symbolically buried in a cemetery dug by unidentified people in Telangana’s Munugode, where vital bypoll is set to take place on November 3. The grave and burial appear to be a protest over the delay in constructing the planned Regional Fluoride Mitigation and Research Center in the village in Telangana’s Nalgonda district.
The byelection is a litmus test for the state’s political parties before the assembly election to be held next year.
The decision to postpone the plan to build the research centre in Munugode’s Choutuppal area has triggered anger among the locals.
Smriti Irani, a Union minister, described it as a “new low in Indian politics” as the BJP attacked the ruling TRS in response to the protest and the grave.
The TRS leaders lashed out at the BJP chief for failing to fulfil his promise of medical facilities for fluoride victims.
This is what ‘JP Nadda’ made a promise in 2016: a 300-bed hospital in Marriguda, a fluoride research center in Choutuppal, and special assistance to fluoride victims. How many have been fulfilled? “Kindly answer,” the TRS’s social media convenor, Y Sathish Reddy, wrote on Twitter, tagging JP Nadda and other BJP leaders.
