HYDERABAD: With the end of the presidential election, the state BJP has decided to take up the next round of agitation over people’s issues with renewed vigour in order to fulfil its dream of emerging as a viable alternative to TRS in state.Towards this goal, it has resolved to hold dharnas and various other forms of protests across the state from August 10 on issues concerning people. Prior to that, it will hold its state executive meeting at Warangal on Saturday and Sunday to chart its course of action to take on the state government.
Party president Amit Shah’s tour programme, which is likely in September, is likely to be finalised at the meeting. The crucial meeting will be attended by party general secretaries Ram Madhav and Muralidhar Rao, who are from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana respectively.
Union minister of state for home affairs Hansraj Gangaram Ahir, in charge of the state party affairs, will also attend the brainstorming session along with Union labour minister Bandaru Dattatreya.
“During the two-day session, we will chalk out a strategy to strengthen the party at the grass roots level in each Assembly constituency in the run-up to the 2019 polls. We want to launch fresh agitations on problems being faced by farmers, artisans, unemployed youth and students on account of the disastrous policies of the TRS government,” BJP state unit chief K Laxman said.
According to him, the party will also hold its district committee meetings in each district from July 28 to 30; and mandal level meetings from August 5 to August 9 with the sole aim of devising poll-winning strategies. At the district and mandal committee meetings, local issues will dominate the deliberations. Local leaders will draw up action plans to organise agitations on such issues to force the government to address them.
