New Delhi: Oppsotion Congress party hit out at controversial BJP MP Tejasvi Surya for listing out 17 Muslim names, linking them with the alleged bed-blocking scam in Bengaluru’s south municipal zone.
A video clip of Surya reading out the 17 Muslim names and MLAs Satish Reddy and Ravi Subramanya making “communal” comments have gone viral.
Out of total 205 employees, @Tejasvi_Surya reads out 17 Muslims who were part of BBMP South Bangalore War room. He later ask if this was a 'madrassa'. Later, all 17 were sacked.

Congress’ Rajya Sabha MP Syed Naseer Hussain said that there are 205 employees working in the BBMP south zone war room. But Tejasvi Surya chose to name 17 names of Muslims. ”This is a third-class, third-rated, gutter-class mentality,” he observed.
”These 205 people were outsourced by Crystal Infosystems & Services, which was recommended by a BJP minister. Is Tejasvi Surya blind? Of all the 205 people, he specifically picked up 17 Muslims. Does he have any shame? Earlier, too, Tejasvi has shown this mindset with his ‘puncture-wallah’ comment, targeting ladies of a particular country saying they can’t get an orgasm and during the Tableeghi Jamaat issue he made several communal tweets,” Hussain said.
Reports also say the 17 Muslims have been fired, picked up by the police where they sat in at COVID-19 war room, and were released hours after.
