Telangana BJP chief Bandi Sanjay has threatened "surgical strike on intruders" in Old City ahead of the Hyderabad civic elections. "Intruders" was a reference to illegal Bangladeshis, Pakistanis and Rohingyas who allegedly live in the city. This has drawn sharp criticism from the ruling TRS and AIMIM. AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaddudin Owaisi has hit back, and dared the BJP-led NDA government to conduct "surgical strikes on Chinese PLA" which "occupied Indian territory." Meanwhile, India has been witnessing a sharp rise in coronavirus cases. With 44,376 fresh coronavirus cases, the country's tally mounted to 92,22,217 on Wednesday. The death toll reached 1,34,699 after 481 fresh deaths were reported.
