HYDERABAD: Right from BJP national president Amit Shah, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and party national general secretary Ram Madhav to Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, as many as four key leaders of the BJP will descend on the State for the next one month in order to provide the much needed impetus to the party cadres.

BJP, which is determined to transform itself into a strong political force in the State by 2019, has decided to use the services of its key leaders in Delhi to guide the party leaders and workers in the State on how to capture Telangana by next general polls.
As part of this strategy, the saffron party central leadership, which is frequently sending Union ministers and party senior leaders to Telangana to asses the party’s strengths and weaknesses in the new State periodically, has formulated a month-long programme to keep the party workers busy with undertaking agitations on people’s issues.

“Our party’s state office and Hyderabad city unit office bearers met here on Sunday separately. During these meetings, we have decided to launch the next round of agitation programmes on the unfulfilled promises of TRS government. We will organise protests on issues such as non-construction of double bedroom houses to the poor and non-distribution of 3 acre land to each dalit family in the State,”  BJP MLC N Ramachandra Rao said.

Apart from this, party members in all the districts will organise protests simultaneously demanding the government to organise Hyderabad Liberation Day on September 17.“During the Telangana movement, KCR repeatedly said his party would organise the Hyderabad Liberation Day. However, his government is against such proposal now. It shows that the TRS is adopting policies to appease Muslims. Hence, we have decided to organise a massive public meeting in Hyderabad on September 17 which will be attended by Rajnath Singh,” Ramachandra Rao disclosed.

Prior to this, the party national president Amit Shah will stay in Hyderabad from September 10 to 12 with a sole aim to take stock of the party’s present situation. The saffron party leaders say that Shah’s visit will mark the beginning of political migrations from other parties to the BJP.
Later, party national general secretary Ram Madhav will take part in the Nav Bharat Manthan (New India Mission) programme to be held in Hyderabad on September 26. Later, Union minister Nitin Gadkari will descend on Hyderabad in the last week of September to address party cadres.
