Telangana BJP MLA T Raja Singh on Sunday urged Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy CM Devendra Fadnavis to conduct a survey of forts of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and restore them, reported news agency PTI.


He was addressing a rally in Mira Bhayander area of Thane district to mark Shivaji Jayanti. The rally was allowed a day earlier by the Bombay High Court after the local police had refused permission citing law and order apprehensions.


Earlier, addressing a press conference, he spoke about the significance of Shivaji Jayanti and said it was now being observed across the world as a tribute to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj who cared the most for his subjects, reported PTI.


The MLA from Goshamahal in Hyderabad also junked speculation that his rallies could cause unrest in the Mira Bhayander region, reported PTI.

Incidentally, Mira Road had seen communal incidents on the eve of the idol consecration of the Ram Temple in Ayodhya on January 22. 

Earlier in December last year, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has targeted Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy for providing a police convoy to his brother, Anumula Krishna Reddy, reported ANI.

In a viral video that surfaced on the internet, the newly sworn-in Telangana CM's brother was seen going in a police convoy.

"It is wrong because his brother is neither an MLA nor an MP...It is illegal...All the ex-MLAs security has been removed. Former CM KCR's security has been reduced to Y+...On what basis was his brother escorted?" BJP leader T Raja Singh questioned the state government, reported ANI.

Bharat Rahstra Samiti leader Krishank posted a video showing Anumula Krishna Reddy being escorted by the police and questioned the government over the same.

"He is not a Minister, not even an MLA, But he is escorted by Police Vehicle... Because he is Chief Minister's brother?" said the BRS leader in a post on 'X'. 

"Is this Congress's Prajala Paalana?" he further asked.

The Congress government came to power in Telangana with leader Revanth Reddy becoming the Chief Minister having secured 64 seats in the 119-member assembly, reported ANI.

Revanth Reddy became the first Congress Chief Minister of the youngest state in India. Congress MLA Bhatti Vikramarka Mallu also took oath as the Deputy Chief Minister of the state that was formed in the year 2014.
