Bengaluru: BJP MP Tejasvi Surya played a major part in the revelation of the bed blocking scam in Bengaluru. But what is happening now has given the case, a communal turn. Recently a video was shared on social media where Surya is seen making communal remarks in a Covid war room.
Tejasvi Surya, the Bangalore South MP is in a Covid war room with three other BJP MLAs. He is reading the names of the people assigned to the facility. He takes around six names and then starts asking them, questions like who assigned them what are their shift timings and other such things. The thing is that most of the names here are of Muslims.
The MLA asks a woman if this is a Haj committee. Who appointed them as though it was a Haj committee? He asks the woman on what basis did these people get selected. What are the qualifications of the person who made the selection? He further points out that a BDS is put in charge instead of an MBBS doctor.
Many have pointed out that the MLAs passed communal remarks. The issue should not have taken a turn like this. Surya and the MLAs should be held responsible for it. Bengaluru civic body commissioner Sarfaraz Khan shared that he appreciates such people who bring out scam like this. But what the sad part is that they then try to give the issue, a communal turn.
What is it About?
The Bengaluru police recently brought to light, a bed-blocking scam. They arrested a social worker and her nephew in relation to this case. The police feel these two have contacts with BBMP war room staff and hence were able to carry out the scam. The accused would take a high amount from the family in the pretext of allotting them a hospital bed.
BJP legislators brought the scam to light. Bangalore South BJP MP Tejasvi Surya and MLAs Satish Reddy, Ravi Subramanya, and Uday Garudachar were the ones who alerted the officials. While the Jayanagar police made the arrest. It was a large scale scam, so the police handed over the case to Central Crime Branch police.
