BJP declares win over pseudo secular as Jinnah Tower in AP is painted with tri color

Jinnah tower painted in tri colour in Andra Pradesh

After the members of a right-wing group were opposed to unfurling the national flag on August 26, in front of the Jinnah Tower in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, the same tower has now been painted with the tri colors. The controversy which occurred during the occasion of Republic Day has now developed several roots on social media as well as in and around Guntur.

Following the dispute, Mohammed Musthafa, Guntur East MLA said, “After request from various groups, we decided to decorate the tower with the tricolour. We will also construct a pole near it for hoisting the national flag. Necessary arrangements to hoist the flag will be made on Thursday.”

Mustafa is from the YSR Congress Party,(YSCRP) and works under the Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Further, in his statements Musthafa accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) who tried to provoke communal clashes in AP. Musthafa said, “Muslim elders fought against the English during the freedom struggle. After achieving independence, some Muslims left the country and settled in Pakistan. But, we wanted to continue in our country as Indians and we love our motherland.”

On the other hand it can also be seen that the BJP workers have been continually demanding to rename the Jinah tower.

In a tweet, Y Satya Kumar, the party’s national secretary, worte “Painting the Jinnah Tower with tricolor will still not change the color of your heart, Mr @ysjagan , which unfortunately, is still green with a crescent. Pay heed to people’s demands & change the name of Jinnah tower!”
He even described the painting of tri color over the Jinah tower as the BJP’s win over ‘pseudo-secular and anti-national forces’, and added, “BJP & the nationalist forces will not rest until the name of Jinnah is removed and same is named after Dr Abdul Kalam or Sri Gurram Jashuva.”
