Arrest, disqualify Raja Singh immediately

  • 112 civil society activists urge CM
  • They write an open letter to KCR

Prominent civil society activist have written to Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR), Chief Minister of Telangana State, urging him to take stringent measures to stop persons like Raja Singh, Ghoshamahal MLA, from spewing hatred. They wanted Raja Singh to be immediately arrested and debarred as an MLA. Since he said he has no faith in the Constitution, he should not be allowed to be a member of Assembly which is an institution created by the same Constitution. The letter was signed by Prof. Rama Melkote, Prof Padmaja Shah, Khalida Parveen, S. Jeevan Kumar, Mazher Hussain, Varghese Theckanath, V. Sandhya, K. Sajaya among others. In all, 112 persons endorsed the letter. Following is the full test of the letter:

Open letter to Chief Minister, Govt of Telangana



Sri Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao

 Chief Minister,

Telangana State


After more than a decade, Hyderabad city today is confronted by communal passions deliberately, and persistently, provoked by politicians like Raja Singh, BJP MLA.
We appeal to the state government to immediately arrest Raja Singh under stringent sections of the law, as he is a repeat offender, to restore confidence in the ability of the law-and-order machinery of the state among ordinary people.

We also appeal to the speaker of the Telangana Legislative assembly to immediately disbar Raja Singh for publicly stating that he does not follow the Constitution of India, whose very membership of the legislature is subject to his allegiance to the Constitution. We demand that necessary measures be taken to prevent all such speeches, statements and actions likely to promote communal hatred and disturb law and order and peace in the society by any individual.

While condemning strongly hate-mongering for political gains promoted by such individuals, we as a group of concerned citizens and civil society organizations appeal to the people to not become pawns in this diabolical game. Getting provoked by such statements will strengthen and fulfil the agenda of such politicians. Let us seek justice without strengthening such forces. Riots and curfews will justify greater state repression and invite untold miseries on ordinary citizens, their lives and livelihoods.

We appeal to all the citizens of Hyderabad to ensure peace and harmony in their own neighbourhoods by forming peace committees that prevent outside mischief-makers from creating disharmony.
