While the clash itself ended on March 24, the BJP and other Hindu groups have been dragging the Chengicharla incident out over the last four days.

Hyderabad: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Goshamahal T Raja Singh was placed under house arrest on Thursday to prevent him from going to Chengicherla village where a communal clash took place after Holi revellers played songs with a DJ outside a mosque four days ago on March 24. The legislator said he planned to go there to distribute groceries among the affected Hindu families.

Raja Singh planned to go to Chengicherla and distribute groceries among affected Hindu families.
“Police barricaded the village and didn’t allow anyone to come out. I planned to go but 10 Inspectors came and told I am put under house arrest,” he said.

Raja Singh claimed that attacks on Hindus are continuing in Telangana despite a change in government. “People of Telangana by mistake elected the Congress government thinking they would be protected from AIMIM and Muslim attacks,” he said. A day earlier ex-Telangana BJP president and MP Bandi Sanjay also tried to reach the village but was prevented from doing so by the Rachakonda police.
