Bandi Sanjay and corporators offered prayers to Bhagyalakshmi Mata and raised slogans Bharat Mata ki Jai.
The oath was recited by 48 corporators, which asserted that they will be available for the people and does not indulge in irregularities. The Corporators said they will work for the development of their divisions on a priority basis.
A heavy police force deployed in the area after their visit to the temple.
It is to mention here that Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited the temple during the GHMC elections.
BJP president Bandi Sanjay, speaking to the scribes, lashed out at TRS and the AIMIM, claiming that they are hurting the sentiments of the majority community in Hyderabad.
“People of Hyderabad have acknowledged the need to elect the BJP candidates and gave the mandate to the BJP by electing them to 48 seats,” Sanjay said.
He further added, “The government should remind that encroaching on properties related to Hindu Dharmik organisations and temples will attract the same level of opposition.”
Bandi Sanjay alleged that Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM party has halted the development of the old city and he asked the people of the old city area to think about why the region is not seeing any development.
The Bhagyalakshmi temple, for the last one month in the backdrop of GHMC elections, saw the several visits by politicians, especially from the BJP government. During the campaign, Bandi Sanjay visited the temple alleging that CM KCR was spreading lies about the BJP-led Union government.
Incidentally, BJP leaders chose to visit the temple on Friday claiming it as an auspicious day, as on the same day, the area witnesses huge gatherings as people come to offer prayers at Mecca Masjid premises in Charminar area.
