Calling Raja Singh a ‘hatemonger’, and serial offender, Parveen said the BJP candidate’s divisive rhetoric and polarizing actions have sown discord in the region.
“What further complicates the matter is Raja Singh’s suspension from his own political party due to his use of disrespectful language against the revered Prophet. This incident has cast a long shadow over his credibility and raises concerns about his ability to gain the trust of all voters, particularly the Muslim community,” the statement said.
“It is essential to prioritize candidates who can bridge divides, strengthen community bonds, and work towards the betterment of the Goshamahal constituency and Telangana as a whole. There is an urgent need for inclusive and responsible representation in our democracy, as well as a call for unity in the face of divisiveness,” the statement concluded.
