India which is full of diverse culture and traditions with multiple festivals around the country.
In Telangana too we have a festival which is called BONALU (Bonalu is an important Hindu festival dedicated to Goddess Shakti and is held in the Hindu calendar month of Ashadham every year. The festival is celebrated to ward off evil and usher in peace and harmony)
And like any other country around the world and state's of our country, The police personnel will put up certain security measures in place in orderto protect the public that comes to temples or any other public gathering.
similary, lately in 1st week of August 2015 Secunderabad area of Telangana Bonalu festivals were held. During this festival, thousands of devotees come to the famous Mahakali Temple located in Secunderabad to worship the Diety.
During this, The North Zone DCP Pratap Reddy of Hyderabad District keeping public safety in mind and to avoid any untoward incident from happening in and around the temple premises. Now Mr.Talasani Srinivas Yadav Who is currently serving as a Irrigation Minister in KCR's Cabinet wanted his supporters to have a DJ duirng the procession and his supporteers did make all the required arragements for one.
When the police personnel got to know about this, the reached the spot and asked the DJ Technician to not play any DJ as the Offcial Orders were issued by the DCP of North Zone Prabhakar Reddy and their equipment will be seized if the technicians still play it.
Talasani Arguing With Police Personnel Over DJ in a Procession
Learning upon this, Mr. Talasani Srinivas Yadav reached the spot and had an altercation with the Police Personnel and also seen asking the police men to take a back step and allow the DJ procession to continue. Also, he is seen in the video explicitly expressing his arrogance and asking the DJ technicians to play the DJ and that he will see who will seize his equipment and also went to to say that he will go to any extended to get the DJ playing.
We wonder as to when these so called public servants understand the importance of Safety and Security of citizens proactively then simply do a lip service in the country and state.
God forbid something happens, all these public servants do is to offer a compensation for a life. NOTHING ELSE.
Today a public servants EGO has more value than the life of a citizen and constituents. We shall see how long this culture will continue in this country.
