Narrow escape for Telangana BJP MLA in Amarnath


It was a narrow escape for Telangana BJP MLA T. Raja Singh and his family from the flash floods triggered by a cloudburst near the Amarnath cave shrine in Kashmir which claimed 16 lives.

Singh and his family members had left the shrine after darshan a few minutes before the flash floods hit the area on Friday.

“We had hardly travelled a kilometre on ponies to descend the hills when we saw water sweeping away tents. This can’t be described in words. I had never seen such a thing in my life,” Raja Singh said.

The member of the Telangana Legislative Assembly from Goshamahal constituency in Hyderabad said he saw 20-30 people being washed away in the floods.

The MLA along with his family members had reached Pahalgam three days ago. From there they booked a helicopter to go to Amarnath on Friday morning.

“When we reached Amarnath, there was a long queue of about 10,000 people. It took 3-4 hours for us to have darshan and after lunch we left,” he said.

The BJP leader said as the weather had suddenly changed, the chopper service was cancelled. They decided to use ponies to descend the hills.

“We could see the cloudburst about 1 km down the hills. Several tents were swept away in the floods,” Raja Singh said.

As the MLA is under special security protection, the Army helped the family reach Srinagar.

According to Singh, a large number of devotees from Telangana were stranded.

What did diaper babies do in Old City: Raja Singh asks Owaisi brothers


Raja Singh, BJP MLA representing Goshamahal Assembly constituency raised his pitch against his arch rivals – the Owaisi brothers.
Calling the brothers “diaper babies” hiding in the safe haven of the Old City, Raja Singh questioned what were the Owaisi brothers doing when hundreds of Muslim women were sold to old men from the Gulf in the illegal marriage racket. “Not a single Hindu woman was ever was sold in such illegal marriage transactions. What did the Owaisi brothers were doing when our Muslim daughters, when our Muslim sisters dignity and respect was being sold away to men from Gulf. They are daughters of Telangana. What did the diaper babies do when our Muslim daughters were being sold in marriage market,” he questioned.
He said the BJP is not against Muslims, but against terrorism and terrorists calling them “terrorist dogs.” “We don’t hate Muslims. We are against terrorists and illegal immigrants who are involved in terror acts in the country,” he said.
Further, Raja Singh claimed that the Owaisi brothers and their AIMIM party lost credibility in their own bastion – the Old City.
“Muslim women are chasing away MIM party leaders with broom sticks when they are going to their doorstep seeking votes. Such is the credibility they have in their own constituency,” he took a jibe at Owaisi brothers.
He said in the last more than 15 years, the Old City remained backward only because of AIMIM and its party’s main faces – the Owaisi brothers. “We have seen what happened to the Old City when the torrential rains and flash floods hit Hyderabad. The only language that the Owaisi brothers know and understand is the language of hate by keeping the Muslim brothers in a constant state of darkness. All that they know is whip up their passions. But Muslims have realized their ulterior motives and keeping MIM away,” he said.
On Asaduddin Owaisi challenge to Prime Minister Modi to visit the Old City, Raja Singh said the AIMIM president tried every trick in the book to stop UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s visit to the city but proved futile. “He met the DGP. He moved heaven and earth to stop Yogi Adityanath ji’s visit to Shalibanda. Now, your baap (father) has come. Stop him. You are scared like a rat hiding in your hole at Adityanath ji’s visit,” he said.

BJP MLA Raja Singh revolts against party leadership


Controversial BJP MLA from Telangana State, Raja Singh on Tuesday revolted against his own party leadership by leveling serious allegations against top BJP leaders in state.

Raja Singh is the only MLA representing BJP in the Telangana Legislative Assembly.

Raja Singh alleged that top BJP leaders in state had worked to defeat him in 2018 Assembly polls but he could survive due to the blessings of God and the people of his Goshamahal constituency in Hyderabad

Though BJP heavyweights and sitting MLA like G Kishan Reddy, K Laxman, Chintala Ramachandra Reddy and NVSS Prabhakar lost their MLA seats in the “TRS wave” in December 2018 Assembly polls, Raja Singh was the lone sitting BJP MLA, who could withstand TRS wave and emerged victorious.

Speaking to media in Hyderabad on Tuesday , Raja Singh accused the BJP leaders in Telangana of deliberately ignoring him and sidelining him in all the party activities in the state. He also accused the BJP top leaders of not even recognizing him as the BJP’s Legislature Party leader in the Telangana Legislative Assembly.

Known as a hardcore “Hindutva” leader in Telangana BJP, Raja Singh sparked several controversies since 2014, when he was first elected as MLA with his sharp remarks and criticism against Minorities, especially the AIMIM , accusing it of making Old City as the ‘den’ for illegal Pakistan migrants and a harbor of terrorists.

He said the BJP state unit president Dr K Laxman defeat in Assembly polls was due to his preoccupation with the party office works and not being able to focus on the constituency.

He charged the Union Minister of State for Home Kishan Reddy for not adhering to the protocol and not even giving information to him on visit to his Maharajgunj constituency.

He said MPs Bandi Sanjay and Aravind besides DK Aruna are efficient to lead BJP in Telangana for 2023 Assembly polls.

Raja Singh described UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanadh as his political guru.

He remarked that he had no interest to become the BJP state unit president and his areas of focus are safeguarding the Hindu dharma and cows.

He alleged that senior leaders in the party worked for his electoral defeat while the party workers put everything at stake to get him elected as MLA.

Revolting against his own party leadership is not new for Raja Singh. In his first term as MLA, he lodged complaint with the BJP national president Amit Shah against then MLA, now union minister Kishan Reddy for sidelining him in the party.

He even announced to have resigned from the BJP to take part in “Go Raksha movement” in August 2018 claiming that he did it to save PM Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and BJP from embarrassment of BJP MLA

Raja Singh’s sensational remarks on Sania Mirza


Hyderabad: BJP MLA Raja Singh has demanded the TRS government to scrap Sania Mirza from the state brand ambassador post. The lone BJP MLA in Telangana has released a video message addressing Telanganites and termed Sania Mirza as a bahu (daughter-in-law) of Pakistan.

“My dear Telanganites, our chief minister K Chandrashekhar Raoji has appointed Sania Mirza as the state brand ambassador. She is a bahu of Pakistan and belongs to that country. Considering the brutal attack of Pakistan terrorists on our military convoy, how can we accept her as our brand ambassador? I request KCR to remove Sania Mirza from the post and appoint either PV Sindhu or Saina Nehwal,” Raja Singh said in his video message.

Supporting the decision of KCR not to celebrate birthday, Raja Singh has further stated that India and other organisations have withdrawn all the support and affiliations with Pakistan.

When the entire country is mourning over brutal attack of our jawans, Sania Mirza has posted her dresses on social media. When it was trolled, Sania expressed her intolerance and this has further turned out to be another point of criticism.

Raja Singh won from Goshamahal Assembly constituency in Hyderabad and he’s the only one elected out of the 119 seats that BJP contested for in December 2018 elections.

Goshamahal BJP MLA Raja Singh, who hogged the limelight by demanding ban on OU beef festival, demanded the removal of state BJP president Kishan Reddy from the post. Addressing media, Raja Singh said the party could not expand under Kishan Reddy’s leadership.

“Kishan Reddy failed to get the benefits of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi‘s schemes to the people of Telangana state. He is unfit to lead party and is not supposed to continue in the post. Kishan Reddy should be sacked from the post of party president immediately.”, he said.

Similarly, Kishan Reddy is said to be encouraging a builder, who is an RSS man, to operate in Goshamahal Constituency much to the chagrin of Raja Singh. Finally today he demanded the removal of Kishan from the post of president of Telangana BJP unit as Kishan was working at cross purposes with the party.He alleged that Reddy was not extending any cooperation to party leaders such as Chintala Ramachandra Reddy, Dr K Laxman, Dr Nagam Janardhan Reddy, NVVS Prabhakar etc.

Raja Singh said a person who was not able to take the party leaders along was unfit to lead the party. ” A leader means he should be able take everybody with him. Kishan Reddy failed in it,” he said.
The MLA said he had even written to Prime Minister Modi, party’s national president Amith Shah, and Home Minister Rajanath Singh about his views on Kishan Reddy. ” I have requested them to remove Kishan Reddy as Telangana party president to strengthen the party. Otherwise the party will perish,” he said.
