HYDERABAD: Lotus bloomed in the city of pearls like never before with BJP top brass descending on the State capital in an attempt to steer the party to victory in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections as they kickstarted the two-day national convention of Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) with a bang -- targeting the TRS party’s flagship scheme Rythu Bandhu and punching holes into the claims that Hyderabad was the start-up capital of India.
The aim of the two-day national convention of the BJYM, BJP’s youth wing, was to project Prime Minister Narendra Modi to be the PM face and paint the country saffron. This is the solely the reason why the BJP is holding the youth convention for the first time in South India - Hyderabad.
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, who kickstarted the event, while terming youth to be ‘agents of change’ said, “all political parties are afraid of BJP and are fighting elections together but with a bad motive - to stop Modi from coming to power.”
He said Opposition parties willing to join hands with Congress will be forced to run a #MeToo movement in the future. Rajnath Singh made the analogy saying that “No power can save the opposition parties that are going with the Congress. I hope that the opposition parties do not start a #Me Too campaign after losing power.”
The speeches of other Union and Chief Ministers were targeted towards the four-year-old TRS government that chose to go for early polls. Mahatashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis claimed that it is not Hyderabad or Bengaluru which is the start-up city but Mumbai.
“Who said that the start-up capital is Bengaluru or Hyderabad, it is Mumbai that has turned to be the start-up capital according to the latest statistics,” Fadnavis said.
Substantiating his claim further, Fadnavis said “the employee provident fund statistics say that with regard to the number of people who are employed, it is Maharashtra which tops the list.”
The recently elected CM of Tripura Biplab Deb also raised suspicion over the implementation of Rythu Bandhu scheme, a pet project of TRS supremo K Chandrasekhar Rao.
“I want to ask KCR one question. You are giving Rs 8,000 to a farmer who has an acre of farm land. But, will you also give the amount to someone who has 100 acres,” said Biplab Deb while alleging that the farmers who are in need are not receiving the benefits.
