Hyderabad, January 14 : Pradesh Congress President G Niranjan on Monday welcomed the arrest of Swamy Kamalanand Bharati for making alleged hate speeches.
Talking to reporters here, Niranjan said that the Congress party would not support anyone who disturbs communal harmony in the country. He said that the religious leaders should promote spiritualism and harmony among different sections of the society. However, he said while some Sadhus and Sants were being misused by the Bharatiya Janata Party, the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen has been exploiting some Islamic clerics to promote hatred in the society.
Nirajnan reiterated that the MIM and BJP have entered into a secret pact to destabilise the Congress Government in the State. Welcoming the arrest of Swamy Kamalanand, he appealed to the people to maintain communal harmony and peace.
