Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya today said that Hyderabad has become the "epicentre of terrorists" from where they have spread to other parts of the country.
He said in order to monitor and stop such activities, the Centre will ask the Telangana government to appoint a DG-level officer.
"Terrorist...Hyderabad epicentre ban gaya hain. Yahi se desh ke vibhinn bhago mein tayyar ho kar chale gaye hain. Bharat sarkar ka ek samachar bhi hain. (Hyderabad has become the epicentre of terrorists. Centre has information that from here they got prepared and have gone to different parts of the country)," Dattatreya alleged.
He was talking to reporters on the sidelines of a BJP event here tonight.
"We have to be vigilant against those who support such forces. Some political parties and some organisations have been doing (supporting) it," the Union Minister of State for Labour said.
"Hence, keeping this in mind, the priority before our government is on maintaining security. We will also ask the state (Telangana) government that a special Director General should be appointed not only to keep a watch and monitor them, but also stop their activities," the senior BJP leader said.
