HYDERABAD: At a time when BJP state leaders have begun making “war cries” against the TRS, the saffron brigade is going to get the much-needed pep talk on Friday in the run-up to the upcoming electoral battle. The party national president Amit Shah will explain the stratagem to be adopted in the state to make the party outwit its opponents.
Shah, whose earlier scheduled visits to the state were postponed several times, will finally arrive here at 10.30 am at Begumpet Airport on Friday. Party state unit has made all arrangements to accord a warm welcome to their national boss. He will be taken to the party state office in Nampally in a huge procession of 5,000 bikes from Begumpet Airport. Shah will address the party workers at the airport itself, soon after his arrival.
Later, at the party state headquarters, the BJP national president will meet party TS core committee, election team, state office-bearers and full-time workers from each Assembly segment, besides dialling members of booth-level committees, Shakthi Kendras (incharge of four polling booths in every constituency) and other grassroots-level workers randomly to check their readiness for polls.
Sources further informed that of the 119 Assembly segments in the state, the BJP wants to concentrate on at least 60 segments in order to play a key role while forming the government in the state after the next Assembly polls, apart from making efforts to improve its electoral fortunes in at least eight Lok Sabha segments, out of the total 17 LS constituencies in the State.
“We have already identified such Assembly and LS constituencies, where our party has the potential to capture the seats. Of such identified seats, majority are those wherein minority voters live in significant numbers. This strategy will pay us dividends as voters will be polarised in such constituencies,” a BJP leader told Express.
In the backdrop of this, BJP state unit chief K Laxman told media that Amit Shah would give impetus to the party State unit on Friday to take on the ruling TRS in the Assembly polls. “I am sure BJP is going to form the government in the State after the next Assembly polls. We have already outdone the main opposition, the Congress, in organising agitations on people’s issues. Congress is nowhere in the scene. Shah is coming to the State to guide us to accomplish our Mission 60 Plus.”
