Wonder why the BJP is not making a huge issue out of the demolition of the Telangana secretariat? While the Congress and even the MIM have made noises and the civil society organizations have even approached the court, the BJP has not taken to the streets. It remained largely silent.
Political watchers feel that the BJP could be silent because of its own demolitions in Delhi. The BJP government at the centre is set to demolish Shastri Bhavan, Rail Bhavan, Nirman Bhavan, Krishi Bhavan and Vigyan Bhavan. These buildings, which house key ministries would be demolished to make way for Central Vista project. Among the buildings that might remain are the Nehru Bhavan. The Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts building too might survive.
So, the BJP, which felt that it could be attacked by the Opposition at the Centre, is keeping quiet on the secretariat demolition in Telangana.
