Intensifying the BJP’s campaign for next month’s Telangana Assembly elections, its President Amit Shah conducted a road show in Hyderabad on Wednesday.
Standing in an open top jeep, Amit Shah waved to people as a long convoy of vehicles passed through various areas in Musheerabad constituency in the heart of the city.
BJP’s Telangana unit President K. Laxman, who is seeking re-election from Musheerabad, Secunderabad MP Bandaru Dattatreya, scores of BJP leaders and activists accompanied Amit Shah.
Police imposed restrictions on vehicular traffic for Shah’s road show.
Earlier, addressing an election rally in Adilabad town, the BJP chief said that during the 2014 elections, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K. Chandrashekhar Rao had promised to make a Dalit as the Chief Minister but after TRS won the elections he himself occupied the chair. “Will you fulfill your promise at least now,” Shah asked the TRS chief.
The BJP leader said Telangana had surplus budget but TRS government plunged the state into Rs 2.5 lakh crore debts.
Shah alleged that KCR was so scared of the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) that he stopped celebrating Telangana Liberation Day. “If voted to power, BJP will celebrate the day on a grand scale.”
Elections to the 119-member Telangana Assembly are scheduled on December 7.
