Non-committal Shah speaks about future alliances
Hyderabad: The BJP national president Amit Shah was non committal on the issue of having alliances in the next General Election with other political parties in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Amit Shah told the leaders not to worry about alliances: “If the set target of 35 lakh membership is reached, the question of alliance does not arise in the first place”. The BJP president explained to the leaders that there is no need for thinking about alliances at this stage and that they should work hard to strengthen the party in such a way that it would emerge as a major force in both the states.
Party insiders say that this, however, does not mean that the party rules out alliances in future but its main aim is to ensure that it becomes a force to be reckoned with so that even if any alliance becomes necessary it can be in an advantageous position.
During the series of meetings Shah had with state leaders, he is said to have expressed his displeasure over the slackness being shown by the state leaders in putting the party on fast-forward mode. Shah told them that ‘Mission 60’ which it had successfully achieved in Haryana and came nearer to success in Maharashtra and J&K in the recent elections should be followed in Telangana as well.
The BJP president considers the two Telugu States as gateways to strengthen the party in the southern states, sources told The Hans India. It is learnt that Shah made it clear that there was no question of altering the state leadership and all the leaders should see that they achieve the target of enrolling 35 lakh people as members in Telangana.
He told them that the national party has decided to continue its alliance with the TDP in the state during the GHMC elections. Sources said the BJP would demand mayor post for their party candidate.
