Fight against “corrupt undemocratic family rule" says Amit Shah
On Friday Amit Shah the BJP national president asked Telangana state BJP leaders and cadre to fight against the corrupt, undemocratic family rule of the TRS government
HYDERABAD: On Friday Amit Shah the BJP national president asked Telangana state BJP leaders and cadre to fight against the “corrupt, undemocratic family rule” of the TRS government. He depicted that there will be no early polls and the Lok Sabha polls will be held as scheduled in April/May 2019. Mr Shah also stated that the BJP will try to initiate construction of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya before the general election.
Mr Shah held a day-long meeting with party leaders and activists on Friday to discuss about strengthening the party for the elections. He alleged that the TRS government is indulging in “minority vote bank politics” by raking up 12 percent quota for Muslims, which is not permissible under the Constitution. He asked party leaders and cadre to brace up to stand up alone in all the 119 Assembly and 17 Lok Sabha seats. However, he kept th alliance options open by stating that the national leadership of the party will take a call depending on as and when the circumstances demands on who it will ally with and whether it will be pre-poll or post-poll alliance.
“You don’t need to bother about alliances now. The party’s national leadership will take a call on these issues at an appropriate time. You should be prepared to fight in all 119 Assembly and 17 Lok Sabha seats alone. Party in-charges should be appointed in all the constituencies. Take up party activities in all the constituencies every day till elections. Try to get closer to people by fighting against anti-people policies of TRS government. The national party leadership will extend all the support for all of you in this endeavour,” Mr Shah said.
Mr Shah promised that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and he would visit Telangana and address the public meetings too often if possible before the 2019 elections. The meeting deliberated on ‘Target Telangana’ and ‘Mission 60 Plus’, with an aim to win 60 plus Assembly seats in Telangana to form a government on its own.
The meeting also discussed on the TRS moving closer to the MIM. Party leaders felt that a pre-poll tie-up with the TRS will not be possible because of its ties with the MIM and it can give a thought about a post-poll alliance depending on the outcome of the election.
