HYDERABAD: Disappointing the BJP state leaders, who are eager to step up the attack on TRS government in the run-up to the general election next year, their national president Amit Shah has once again postponed his proposed visit to the state, scheduled to be held on June 22.

The postponement was necessitated by Shah’s decision to focus his attention on poll-bound Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh states for now.

BJP sources said that Amit Shah is likely to visit the state in the second week of July as he is firm on giving a direction to the  cadre in Telangana on how to strengthen the party at the grass roots level in each Lok Sabha constituency.

However, party State leaders led by state unit president K Laxman will embark on their Parivartan Yatra from Yadadri on June 23. The Yatra, named Telangana Praja Chaitanya Yatra, will be held in four phases covering all the 119 Assembly constituencies in Telangana.

During the first round of the Yatra, all the BJP leaders will criss-cross as many as 30 Assembly constituencies.

“Our Yatra is aimed at exposing the failures and unfulfilled promises of the TRS government. We will interact with various sections of people like farmers, unemployed youth and women who are unhappy with the disastrous policies of the state government,” BJP MLA NVSS Prabhakar told Express.

The BJP state leadership has already decided to organise meetings with various sections of people like farmers, students and employees in Hyderabad in order to win over the people belonging to these communities to the saffron party’s fold.

Already, the leaders have begun undertaking door-to-door campaigning in all villages to publicise Narendra Modi government’s welfare schemes in the run-up to the panchayat polls in the state.
