In what could be a politically motivated move that might blow up on the faces of the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), the government issued orders in the wee hours of the morning to extern (essentially deport or banish) him from the state for a period of six months for making some critical observations in his speeches. In what could be viewed as a monkey balancing act by the government (it had also externed an actor/ activist Kathi Mahesh for making derogatory comments against Ram and Sita), to which Swamy Paripoornananda has objected to.
At first, the government placed the Swamy in House arrest on Monday, preventing him from taking a padyatra (a previously scheduled padayatra of 40 kilometers) in the ruse that they were providing security protection to him, which he did not think he needed.
On the political canvas, would this make the Hindus unite behind the affable Swamy? And by uniting two disparate issues is the Telangana government pandering to a minority? Only time will tell. Stay tuned as this is just the beginning…
