- Interior Minister Amit Shah was in Hyderabad on Saturday
- Amit Shah said the KCR wants to turn Telangana into Bengal
- The Minister of the Interior called on the KCR-led government for unfulfilled promises of opinion polls
Interior Minister Amit Shah said during his visit to Hyderabad that Telangana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR) wants to turn the state into Bengal and that he must be stopped now. “We will ensure that the killers of BJP worker Sai Ganesh receive the harshest punishment,” the interior minister added on Saturday.
Union Interior Minister and BJP veteran Amit Shah called a poll in Telangana and cracked down on the state TRS government for alleged corruption and unfulfilled promises, saying his party is ready to face the polls, which will reach the state next year.
Speaking at a public rally, which marked the culmination of BJP President Bandi Sanjay Kumar’s second phase of the “padayatra” (foot march), Shah appealed to voters to defeat the ruling TRS and make the Saffron Party successful in the 2023 election.
BJP is ready to face elections even if they are held “tomorrow” and he can see the writing on the wall about TRS ‘defeat in the opinion polls, Shah claimed.
“Do we need to change Nizam in Telangana or not,” he asked the assembly, in an obvious reference to Prime Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao.
Shah accused the TRS government of failing to fulfill the great planks of separate Telangana agitation of “water, funds and jobs”, Shah said the BJP, if elected to power, would implement them.
He also said that his party would put an end to minority reservations in the state and provide benefits to ST, SC and backward classes.
The high-ranking BJP leader, whose party won two votes in the assembly and made significant progress in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) election over the past two years, expressed confidence that the BJP would come to power in the state during the House next year and called on voters to choose the saffron party to initiate a safe and prosperous Telangana.
Referring to the TRS car survey symbol, Shah accused its control is in the hands of AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi.
As for the alleged superiority against BJP activists, he claimed that attempts were being made to make Telangana the West Bengal, an obvious reference to the death of party workers in the eastern state, which the BJP blames on the ruling TMC there.
Referring to the alleged suicide of a BJP activist Sai Ganesh in Khammam due to “police harassment”, Shah said the BJP would ensure that those responsible for the death of the party worker were locked up.
