BJP On Telangana: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president JP Nadda addressed a public rally in Mahabubnagar of Telangana on May 5. At the rally, JP Nadda said that BJP’s victory in Hazurabad and Dubakka shows that people desire change in the state. “Our victory in Hazurabad and Dubakka disturbed KCR. The people have decided that they want change, they want Bharatiya Janata Party’s double engine government in Telangana,” said Nadda. Amid ‘VandeMataram’ chants, Nadda had received a warm welcome in Hyderabad, Telangana earlier this evening.
The Telangana visit of BJP president and later heading to Kerala seems to be a clear strategy of BJP to stamp its imprint in the south India. And it is understood that according to the party internal survey, the BJP has chances of expanding its presence in Telangana and Kerala!
The BJP, the largest national party, did not win a single seat in Left-ruled Kerala. In Telangana, it has just three seats in the Assembly and four MPs. Sources in the BJP said Nadda will take up farmers’ issues in Telangana. The BJP is learnt to have made a comprehensive blueprint for Telangana following growing political acrimony with the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in recent times.
The bitterness had stemmed from CM and TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao projecting himself as an alternative to PM NarendraModi in 2024 LokSabha polls. Nadda will also chair a meeting of the party’s state office-bearers and address a public rally in Mahabubnagar.
Targeting the TRS government in Telangana, Nadda alleged that all its so-called flagship schemes were riddled with corruption and only a double-engine government will benefit the state. He gave credit to Prime Minister NarendraModi for handling the Covid pandemic well whereas, he said advanced countries had struggled. “PM Modi gave 130 crore people surakshakavach in the form of vaccines and boosters,” he said.
In Kerala, he will address a public meeting in Kozhikode and meet leaders, including state chief K Surendran. “Our party chief will discuss socio-political issues and motivate leaders to expose the state government on digital and social platforms,” a leader said.
The BJP president reminded people that KCRhad mockedCovid protocol and yet made arrests citing protocol violation.”The KCR government is one of the most corrupt governments. Kaleshwaram has become a milch cow for KCR… From Rs20,000 crore, the cost increased by Rs 28,000 crore… But no irrigation came. Rajoli Banda, other irrigation projects failed,” he said.
