HYDERABAD: BJP’s state leadership, which is making efforts to fulfil its central leadership’s dream of rising to power in TS by 2019, has decided to hold a massive public meeting in city on Sept 17 as part of its action plan to strengthen the party at the grass roots.Though the meeting will be held to expose TRS government’s inability to celebrate Hyderabad State Liberation Day on September 17 as a state function, BJP wants to use the occasion to review how far its efforts to transform the party into a strong political force in the state achieved the desired results.

As its strategists have already directed the party state unit to try to polarise the electorate in the state by opposing reservation for Muslims and other appeasement measures being taken by TRS, the party leadership thinks the meeting will help it win over Hindu voters.“We will hold a massive public meeting on September 17 in order to show the people how KCR, who had earlier wanted the Hyderabad Liberation Day to be held officially, went back on his word under pressure from AIMIM. 

The CM’s Muslim-appeasing politics will be our main plank for the 2019 polls,” BJP state unit chief K Laxman told mediapersons, after holding the party’s ‘Telangana Vimochana Committee’ meeting at the party’s state office here on Friday.“The erstwhile Hyderabad state under the Nizam rule was merged with Indian Union on September 17, 1948,” Laxman said. In order to exert pressure on state government to celebrate September 17 officially, BJP cadres will undertake agitations from August 15 to September 17 across the state.
