The state government has not rested by denying police permission to the organizers to hold the festival, but it has also prevailed upon the university to refuse its permission to the festival.
However, it sensed that some of the Congress and Left Wing Parties have been making hectic efforts to to rope in Kerala Chief Minister Ooman Chandy, and Karnataka Chief Minister Siddha Ramaiah to attend the festival to make it a big event, to catch the attention of the entire country.
The proposed festival has already raked up controversy and those opposing to hold a ‘Gau Puja’ and a ‘Pork Festival’, if the organizers goes ahead with their proposed move. Sensing that it would be a potential issue of political significance and could create a law and order problem, the TRS government has taken all the precautionary steps to prevent organizing the festival. In addition to these, the state government has also reportedly taken up the issue with Kerala and Karnataka government’s advising against Ooman Chandy and Siddharamaiah attending the festival, despite being invited by their own party men from the state. A senior police official pointed out, “Normally, it is a standard procedure in which chief ministers and governors visiting other states within the country would not ignore any advisory coming from that state. So, both the Kerala and Karnataka CM are unlikely to ignore the advisory of the Telangana government and attend the festival, “ he added.
