VISAKHAPATNAM: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh asked Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders to work in coordination with Telugu Desam Party and also told the latter to expand the organisational base of the party. Rajnath visited the BJP office at Daspalla Hills here on Friday morning.
On the occasion, Rajnath Singh said that it was the Modi-led NDA government which was committed to help farmers. Recalling that he was also from a farmer’s family, Rajnath Singh said that he and his party knew the difficulties of farmers and stated that the government had been initiating various socio-economic schemes and programmes to benefit the farmer. “The crop insurance scheme launched by the Prime Minister in Madhya Pradesh on Thursday would immensely benefit farmers and the schemes of the NDA Government for farmers would increase the income of the latter,” he said.
Accompanied by the TDP leaders, including HRD minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao, TDP city unit president and Visakha South MLA Vasupalli Ganesh Kumar, BJP state president and Visakhapatnam MP K Haribabu, Rajnath called the party cadre to work in such a way that there was no scope for anyone to believe that there were differences between the allies.
