EXCLUSIVE: 'Anti-incumbency in Telangana to benefit BJP'

Hyderabad: Taking a dig at the TRS party over the upcoming assembly elections in Telangana, BJP president Amit Shah said he could sense an atmosphere of anti-incumbency in the state.

Shah came down heavily on the TRS party

Speaking exclusively to ETV Bharat, Shah said that the BJP would fight for all the 199 seats in Telangana.


He added that the BJP enjoys a stronghold in 105 out of the 119 constituencies, and a decision whether to ally with smaller regional parties will be taken later.

He further added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi would come down to the state to campaign for the party.

Coming down strongly at the Telangana Rashtra Samiti, who were in power before the assembly was dissolved in the state, the BJP president said he could list down a number of unfulfilled promises made by them.

"The TRS government promised two lakh government jobs, three acres of land to every dalit, and vowed to solve farmers' irrigation woes, but nothing has been done till date,” he said.

He added that the poor were promised a two bedroom house each, but only 5,000 have been constructed out of the initial target of 15 lakh.

Shah further accused the TRS government of depriving the people of basic healthcare by not implementing the Centre's flagship Ayushman Bharat scheme.
