BJP Nadda targets Telangana to join BJP by 2024

On Sunday Bharathiya Janata Party working President JP Nadda assured that Telangana would Join the BJP as other states in the country by 2024.

Nadda addressed a huge rally in Hyderabad where a large number of leaders including ex-MLAs from Telugu Desam Party and the Congress joined the BJP.

JP Nadda said that “When the entire nation is rallying behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi and getting benefits from his government’s policies and programs, Telangana cannot lag behind. The people of Telangana also should enjoy the fruits of development initiated by the Modi government.

Nadda called upon the party workers to strive for the realization of their dreams in the next elections.

He reminded that “Though the Telangana Rashtra Samithi was not part of the NDA, Modi has not shown any discrimination against the state and fulfilled all the promises made in the state bifurcation act. Though it was not mentioned in the act, the Modi government sanctioned an All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) to Telangana,”.

The BJP leader lashed out at TRS government led by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said that the State government was not able to utilize the Central funds for various schemes.

He said that “The chief minister is ruling the state like a monarch, instead of being democratic. He does not go to Secretariat at all but wants to demolish the existing secretariat on the pretext of bad Vastu. He has scant respect towards women, as there is not a single woman in his cabinet,”

Nadda also alleged that KCR (as the Telangana CM is called) was wasting huge public money by escalating the cost of the Kaleshwaram irrigation project by two times, though it could have been completed with Rs 30,000 crore. “It is nothing but cheating the people,” he said.

He also accused the TRS chief of indulging in mere publicity, while nothing was happening in action. “He wasted money in the name of Haritha Haram, a tree plantation program. He cheated Dalits by going back on his promise of distributing three acres of land to each of them. If at all there is anybody who got benefitted during the TDP regime, it is family members of KCR,” he alleged.

The BJP working president welcomed leaders from other parties who had come forward to strengthen the BJP in Telangana. “They are joining us with a strong faith in the leadership of Modi. The party will give them due recognition and respect,” he said.

Lashing out at the Congress for opposing the abrogation of Article 370, Nadda wondered how the Congress could call itself a nationalist party. “Thanks to the leadership of Modi and Amit Shah, today every Jammu and Kashmir citizen will enjoy the same benefits that every other Indian has,” he said.

Union minister Kishan Reddy and, Telangana BJP chief Dr. Laxman were also present at the meeting.

Published

on

Some minister Amit Shah’s comments, in which he pitched for making Hindi a common language in the country, has re-ignited the debate on ‘Hindi imposition’ with political leaders, particularly those from the south, warning the government against any move to make Hindi a common language in the country.

As a political slugfest erupted over the matter, Minister of State Kiren Rijiju took to Twitter to share an old video in which Congress leader P Chidambaram is heard saying that he hopes efforts to make Hindi as the country’s language would continue.

Rijiju’s tweet came a day after the Congress reacted to Amit Shah’s statement by warning the government against stirring up controversies over “emotive and sensitive issues” and against tinkering with the three-language formula.

Meanwhile, voices of dissent came in from the Bharatiya Janata Party itself with Karnataka chief minister BS Yediyurappa tweeting that for his state “Kannada is the principal language”. “We will never compromise its importance and are committed to promoting Kannada and our state’s culture,” Yediyurappa also said.
