Hyderabad : BJP Talangana chief on Wednesday asked Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao to take steps to protect temple lands in the old city areas in 24 hours.
Sanjay Kumar warned if the Chief Minister were to fail, he would be responsible for the movement the party launching in the old city.

Sanjay demanded the Chief Minister to recover these lands and hand them over to the endowment departments.
The MP accused the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) of having encroached endowment lands in the Chandrayangutta constituency, and used the name of a Hindu to fake documents and misled the court.
He claimed that the police officials, colluding with MIM leaders, were trying to give endowment lands to a private individual.
The government lands, the BJP leader said, are being encroached under the supervision of the Deputy Commissioner of Police.
Also the police official was targeting BJP workers to get postings, promotions, awards and rewards.
BJP MLA Raja Singh alleged that MIM was trying to encroach the Kalimata temple. He claimed that BJP workers resisted three attempts to grab the land.
The MLA alleged that the police beat up party workers, including women, after they tried to protect temple lands.
