While TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao has been repeatedly dismissing the Bharatiya Janata Party as an insignificant party in Telangana, BJP national president Amit Shah has said that they will win the upcoming elections.
Addressing the representatives of Shakti Kendra and polling booth in-charges at a meeting in Hyderabad on Wednesday, Shah said that if they worked as per his direction, no one can stop them from winning the Telangana elections.
“For 15 days, if the Shakti Kendra president goes to their respective booths and follows the 23 point guidelines suggested by the party, I guarantee you that we can achieve victory in Telangana,” he said.
Amit Shah said that the BJP’s victory is incomplete unless they win in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu.
Giving confidence to the BJP workers, he reminded about how BJP won in states like Tripura and Manipur, due to their precise strategy. He said that they can win Telangana too in a similar manner.
Attacking KCR, Shah said that TRS governance was the worst in the country. He said that Telangana had turned into a debt-ridden state from a financial surplus state. He also alleged that the Dalits and Adivasis in the state were not happy under the TRS regime. Shah claimed that the reservations KCR is pitching for to please his allies AIMIM will result in cut of reservations meant for the SC, ST and OBC communities. Shah urged the booth level workers to highlight this.
He said that KCR dissolved the Assembly prematurely six months before the term ends, fearing a contest with Narendra Modi. Stating that KCR is playing dynasty politics, he said, “You (KCR) are not happy with being CM, you also want your son and daughter.”
Shah also boasted about the recent NRC development in Assam and claimed that there were 40 lakh 'Guspeti' (intruders) who have entered the country. “When we want to remove them, Rahul Baba and Co and parties like TRS, DMK, TDP, TMC created a ruckus in the Parliament. They cried as if their drainage got stuck. You are concerned about their human rights, aren’t you concerned about these intruders bombing in Hyderabad? You’re only concerned about vote bank,” he said.
Shah said that if Narendra Modi is re-elected, he will remove ‘intruders’ from the country.
He reiterated that Telangana government did not observe the Hyderabad liberation day due to pressure from the Owaisis.
The meeting was attended by all the Shakti Kendra presidents, polling booth in-charges.
Other leaders present at the meeting included former Union labour minister Bandaru Dattatreya, state president K Laxman, Muralidhar Rao, Kishan Reddy among others. Surprisingly, Goshamahal MLA Raja Singh, who resigned from the party three months ago, also attended the meeting.
