Congress Leaders To Be Wooed By BJP In Telangana
Hyderabad: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) seems to have big plans for Telangana. It’s national president Amit Shah is going to spend three days here as part of his nationwide tour which he started from Kashmir.
Amit Shah will be addressing the members of booth committees in order to motivate them. The BJP has no delicate issues in Telangana as it has in AP where it is part of the ruling coalition.
The BJP is mostly confined to the city of Hyderabad with a marginal presence in Warangal and Karimnagar district. Amit Shah would like to repeat in Telangana the experiment he had successfully implemented in Assam and Uttarakhand. The BJP won in the northeastern and northern states because of the defections by capable leaders from the Congress and Assam Gana Parishad. Amit Shah has asked his men to look for potential leaders from Reddy community in Congress.
Revant Reddy of the TDP has already been sounded and he is reportedly inclined to join the national party. Among other leaders who are favourably disposed towards the BJP are Komatireddy brother’s from Nalgonda district. They are also planning a TV news channel. They have their contracts going in BJP-ruled states. There are many Congressmen who are not happy with the affairs in the party. But they realised that their party has about 20 percent vote intact. That is why they are hesitating to get in touch with the BJP leader.
