Amid a bitter campaign for elections to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), the Hyderabad Police Thursday warned of strict action against anyone trying to incite communal tension in the city. This came after Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao gave a free hand to the police to act against “anti-social elements”, who are trying to derive political mileage through “conspiracies”, “false propaganda” and “provocative utterances”. The Chief Minister said the government has “definite information” that “anarchic forces” want to “manufacture riots”.

DGP M Mahender Reddy said they were watching social media posts and incendiary speeches of some political leaders and warned of action if they try to instigate communal violence. Heavy security has been deployed across the city.
