Ever since Bandi Sanjay became the state BJP President, the comments about sending KCR to jail were often heard. Bandi is seen saying this once in a week or so. Let us break down the whole timeline of what has happened ever since the day Bandi Sanjay took to the president’s chair.
March 11, 2020
Bandi Sanjay has been appointed as the BJP Telangana president. There was a new wave of enthusiasm at the party. Until then, it was rare for a BJP leader to verbally attack KCR. But, the scene changed completely after Bandi’s entry. He was aggressively giving it back to the TRS members. The kind of response was too aggressive and straightforward that it started having an effect. The same is still going on. However, there is one thing Bandi has been chanting for years. He keeps talking about sending KCR to prison. After all this time, analysts now believe that Bandi’s words are just words and seem nothing more than that.
Let us rewind and see what he said over the years:
March 17, 2021
It is not new for the BJP leaders to fight and go to jails. KCR is firmly trying to put down the tribals for which he will be imprisoned in the future. He sarcastically said that the CM is currently staying in his farmhouse, practicing what it feels like to stay indoors when he goes to jail.
June 3, 2021
He stated that being a Union Minister, KCR did so much corruption in the country. “We are focusing on issues related to corruption. We are taking details of the Sahara and ESI cases,” he said, adding that he has a whole log of KCR’s corruption activities.
December 21, 2021
State BJP leaders met Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi. On this occasion, the members suggested that the government should uncover other scams, including the rice scandal which took place under the TRS regime. They expressed interest in revealing the details to people. Shah called on the KCR government to end its anti-people policies.
January 04, 2022
BJP national president JP Nadda accused KCR of being the most corrupt chief minister. It was the time Bandi Sanjay was taken to prison. Nadda came to Hyderabad and was incensed at the way the Kaleshwaram project was turned into a cash cow. KCR has been criticized for bringing water to his farmhouse at a cost of over crores.
January 5, 2022
Bandi Sanjay, who was released from Karimnagar jail, warned that going to jail is no big deal to him. He stated that no one will be able to save KCR when his turn to go to jail comes.
January 12, 2022
Sanjay accused the Telangana Chief Minister of being a big-time corrupted politician. He said that the Center was preparing to take action against KCR and it was certain that he would be sent to jail. It has been criticized that KCR, who is aware of this matter has started rushing again to give a shape to the political front he was talking about. However, in the wake of Bandi’s comments, KCR held a meeting at Pragati Bhavan, calling on the people to overthrow the BJP entirely.
February 2, 2022
KCR opened up mouthing his opinions on the union budget firing at the center. Countering this, Bandi said that even the dogs and foxes are feeling ashamed looking at KCR’s language. Bandi stated that KCR as a Union Minister did ESI and Sahara scams, accused him of robbing thousands of crores. Added that no matter how many words KCR says, it is not possible to stir up sentiment and take advantage of the situation, and he is going to jail for sure.
February 12, 2022
Bandi said that KCR got frustrated as soon as the investigation into his corruption activities has started. He accused KCR of playing tactics in the state by igniting the Telangana sentiment at this point and diverting people’s attention. “Like Vijay Mallya, Neerav Modi, do you want to flee the country? you know how to get fake passports! But your games won’t work this time. We will definitely send you to jail for all your criminal activities,” Bandi commented. KCR responded to this in a press meet the next day, counter challenging the BJP leaders to put him in jail if they dare.
Taking a look at this on whole, we can clearly see Bandi trying to challenge and pass comments on sending KCR to prison. But, none of that happened so far. On the other hand, KCR is challenging Bandi to do what he has been saying for a long time. In this context, the Congress party is criticizing the two parties for colluding. BJP is criticized for being limited to mere words.
