BJP to launch GHMC poll drive from Aug. 10: Lakshman

The Telangana BJP has chalked out a strategy for GHMC elections likely to be held by end of this year. The party would organize ward-wise meetings from August 10 to highlight the failures of TRS government, BJP floor leader in Telangana Assembly Dr K Lakshman has said.

Speaking to the media here on Friday, Lakshman said an electoral strategy has been chalked out to strengthen the party from booth level to face the GHMC elections which are likely to be held in December as per the direction of the High Court. The main contest would be between BJP and MIM as the ruling TRS party has a tacit understanding with the latter, he added.

Lamenting that MIM leaders for making provocative and objectionable speeches, the BJP MLA wanted to know the stand of the ruling TRS on the remark of Hyderabad MP and MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on capital punishment of Yakub Memon, who was hanged to death on Thursday. Why the TRS was not condemning the remarks of Asaduddin Owaisi, he questioned.

The BJP would celebrate September 17 as Liberation Day, Dr Lakshman said, adding that a three-month long strategy has been evolved to face the GHMC elections. National party leaders would also participate in the meetings, he said. Besides creating awareness among the people about the failures of the KCR government, his party would also highlight the achievements of the NDA government led by Narendra Modi during last one year.

On Thursday, Telangana BJP Election Management Committee held its first meeting and chalked out a strategy after a detailed discussion. The committee consisting of 30 senior leaders, including party’s five MLAs and an MLC, Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya and party president G Kishan Reddy.

To a question, Dr Lakshman said his party’s main rival would be MIM and not either TRS or Congress. (NSS)
