Singh also alleged that the AIMIM MLA and others from his party were not following lockdown rules imposed in the Hyderabad's old city.

According to Dabeerpura police, Balala has taken permission from Mirchowk ACP before getting the barricades removed on Dabeerpura bridge.

Raja Singh said, "Today, the whole country is fighting corona. On one side there is country fighting while on the other there is Ahmed Balala and other leaders of AIMIM who do not follow lockdown rules. They do not listen to anyone and are threatening police and doctors."

"I want to ask AIMIM MP Assadudin Owaisi whether he is behind these acts. He (Owaisi) portrays a very nice image but on the other side, he orders his MLAs and corporators to violate lockdown and allow coronavirus to spread," the BJP MLA said.

He further said, "I want to say to them that people will respond to your deeds. I want to say to Telangana Chief Minister that whosoever MLA or corporator violates lockdown the chief minister should take action against that person."
