Vice President of BJP and former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Chouhan, who visited Telangana to review the performance of the Telangana BJP, exuded confidence on Wednesday that the BJP would form government in the next Assembly elections.

Chouhan further stated that the BJP will conduct a massive membership drive in the state in a bid to form the next government. “Our next target is to form government in Telangana in 2023 Assembly elections,” the BJP leader said.

The membership drive will start from July 6, marking the birth anniversary of Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee, and will continue until August 11. Chouhan said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would launch the campaign.

Addressing the media at BJP office in Nampally, the Chouhan thanked the voters for increasing their vote share from 5% to 20% in the recent Lok Sabha elections. “This is an indication that the people of the state are losing faith in the TRS government because of its one-family politics,” he said, adding that the victories here and in West Bengal were “very special to the party,” according to The New Indian Express.

He further attacked Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) for not doing his administration from the secretariat. “Telangana people are fed up with one family politics. There is corruption here. I was also three-time Chief Minister. Telangana Chief Minister has not visited Secretariat here. The money which was meant for people welfare is being spent to construct new Assembly and Secretariat. Why does he not visit the secretariat? It is a mystery. A 'vaastu' advisor has been given the status of a minister,” ANI quoted Chouhan as saying.

Accusing KCR of self-promotion and betraying the people of Telangana, Chouhan said, “Policies of the central government have not been implemented in Telangana. He (KCR) does not go to attend the meeting of NITI Aayog. He does not care about Telangana's development and always involved in promoting himself. I see his advertisements on the front page daily in Madhya Pradesh,” he said.
