BJP Flags Off Its South Ambitions With High-Octane GHMC Election Campaigns
Union Home Minister Amit Shah addressed hectic rallies on his Hyderabad visit and urged people to vote for the BJP in the upcoming municipal polls by citing the poor performance of the TRS government during the floods, highlighting the increasing Rohingya menace and critiquing the nawab culture
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led central government is leaving no stones unturned to establish its domination in south India, beginning with the upcoming municipal elections in Hyderabad. After Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath addressed the former princely town’s citizens ahead of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections, Union Home Minister Amit Shah is currently on tour to appease the Hyderabadi population for their votes.
Post visiting the Bhagyalakshmi Temple in the city, Shah addressed massive rallies at Sanathnagar and Jubilee Hills to cheering crowds. Later, while speaking to the state’s media in the afternoon, he thanked the people of the region for their support to the BJP. He also expressed confidence on his party’s member being voted for the mayor post in Hyderabad, while announcing that the BJP will ensure an equal chance for everyone by eliminating the prevalent Nawab and Nizam culture.
The saffron party is up against the current Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government and the Asaduddin Owaisi led All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) party. Criticising the alliance of the TRS and AIMIM, the central cabinet minister said that the administration failed to protect its people from the floods that ravaged through the city in October. Citing sanitation as a major issue, he also blamed Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for not making dump yards in the city. The Narendra Modi loyalist promised to make Hyderabad an IT hub if his party came to power.
Meanwhile, Owaisi took a jibe at the BJP stating that the party is campaigning for the civic elections like it the prime-ministerial polls. Earlier, during a war of words between Shah and Owaisi, the former had blamed the latter for encouraging the Rohingya refugee community in the city rather than focussing on development.
