HYDERABAD: Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday said Hyderabad will be renamed Bhagyanagar within 30 minutes of BJP coming to power in Telangana.
Addressing a party campaign rally in Charminar, he said: “Did anyone ever think that Ram Mandir will be constructed? Did Jawaharlal Nehru or Indira Gandhi dare to build? Because of BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it is happening. When terrorist attacks were taking place in the country, then Congress government was always on the back foot. But, Modi has shown them with surgical strikes. Now, terror attacks have stopped.”
He said no one will raise a hue and cry if Hyderabad is renamed Bhagyanagar.
Taking a dig at Congress and AIMIM’s stand on Isreal-Hamas conflict, he said: “All these people (AIMIM) who are supporting Palestine should go there and fight for their cause.”
He faulted Congress MP Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi for not uttering a word against Hamas. “PM Modi also supports the creation of a Palestine state, but it cannot happen with terrorist organisations like Hamas. He condemned Hamas’ activities,” he said.
