Ahead of the 2019 assembly elections in Telangana, the BJP had promised to rename Hyderabad and Karimnagar cities if elected to power. The party was, however, handed a crushing defeat in the polls that saw K Chandrasekhar Rao’s TRS winning over a two-third majority.

Yogi, apart from raising the Bhagyanagar pitch, also raised the issues of Article 370 repeal and Ram temple construction while addressing the party workers and supporters in Hyderabad.

“Under the guidance of PM Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah repealed Article 370, giving full freedom to the people of Hyderabad and Telangana to purchase land in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.

The 150-seat GHMC would be contested on December 1. The civic poll results would be declared by the State Election Commission (SEC) on December 4. In 2015, the ruling TRS had won 99 seats, whereas, the AIMIM had secured victories in 44.
