MAHBUBNAGAR: With the primary objective of winning maximum number of seats as well as enhance its voter base, the Bharatiya Janata Party has not only been sending their dedicated cadre to every nook and corner of the constituencies but has also been involving MLAs and senior leaders from neighbouring Karnataka to campaign for the party ahead of December 7 Assembly elections.
Though by now it is clear that the saffron party is determined to expand its base in the southern States in general and Telangana in particular, what many may not know is how the party's faithful are quietly carrying on with their campaigning - without any hype or hoopla.
While the party has roped in MLAs from Karnataka to campaign for the party in Mahbubnagar, the BJP has been involving 50 to 100 active party workers in each Assembly constituency of the district to campaign for their candidates.
According to party sources, the BJP is focusing on four Assembly segments in each Parliamentary constituency of the district with the aim of winning a minimum of two constituencies.
In Nagarkurnool Parliamentary constituency, the party will be focussing on Kalwakurthy, Achampeta, Nagarkurnool and Wanaparthy Assembly constituencies. The party's focus in Mahbubnagar Parliamentary constituency will be on Mahbubnagar, Devarakadra, Narayanpeta and Maktal constituencies.
Determined to achieve their targets, the party is adopting a slightly different strategy in their campaign - involving all the affiliates and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh volunteers.
The party has also been involving Shakti Kendras to propagate the achievements and success of Central government's schemes at the polling booth level, with each member being assigned ten families.
Five names finalised
Meanwhile, the BJP has already finalised the names of candidates for the five Assembly constituencies in the district and they are Talloju Achary (Kalwakurthy), Rathang Panduranga Reddy (Narayanpet), Venkat NarayanReddy (Gadwal), Amarender Reddy (Wanparthy), Mallesh (Achampet) and Srivardhan Reddy (Shadnagar).
BJP district president Padmaja Reddy informed Express that the names of candidates for the remaining seven constituencies will be finalised within a week.
The party is already scrutinising the credentials of the aspiring candidates like Rajini Reddy (for Alampur seat), Paladi Rammohan, Rapothula Srinivas Goud and Veera Bramha Chary (Jadcherla), Yeggani Narsimulu (Devarakadra), Dileeep Achary and Ravinder Reddy (Nagarkurnool), Sudhakar Rao and Darasingh (Kollapur), and Nagurao Namoji (Kodangal).
