RAJAMAHENDRAVARAM: The Bharatiya Janata Party national secretary and Andhra Pradesh party in-charge Siddharth Jain on Sunday reviewed the preparations for the upcoming public meeting of the party slated for March 6 in Rajamahendravaram. BJP national secretary Amit Shah, in his first public meeting in Andhra Pradesh, would address the people.

Siddharth Jain addressed the party leaders at a meeting held at La Hospin Hotel. Amit Shah is expected to highlight the welfare schemes and the developmental schemes being implemented by the Centre, Siddharth Jain said. Shah is also expected to present a detailed account of what the Central Government had done for AP. Jain asked the party workers to make the event a mega success.

Jain said the public meeting would be a platform to showcase the party strength in AP. The membership drive in the state reflects that there is a great enthusiasm about the party among the people, he added. BJP state president K Hari Babu, leaders Santha Reddy, D Purandeswari, Kanna Lakshmi Narayana, Kavuri Sambasiva Rao, Endowments minister P Manikyala Rao, MLAs Vishnu Kumar Raju, Dr AS Narayana, MLC Somu Veerraju, KSN Raju and others were present.


Replying to a question on Kapu reservation issue, Siddharth Jain said that the party would mount pressure on the state government to fulfil the promise given to the Kapu community. He slammed AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi, CMP general secretary Sitaram Yechuri and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal for trying to derive political mileage by pandering to the anti-national activities on the campus of Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi. He said even YSRC chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy tried to get political mileage from the unfortunate death of a student in the University of Hyderabad, he said.
