Amit Shah To Visit Telangana, Review BJP’s Assembly Poll Performance


Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Chief Amit Shah will come to Telangana in the last week of this month and review the party’s poor performance in the December 7 assembly polls, as well as its preparedness for the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha polls, state BJP president K Laxman, said on Saturday.

The BJP contested the polls by himself and won only one Assembly segment (out of the total of 119). Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) won the polls with a thumping majority, winning 88 seats.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also likely to come to the state in January, a party release quoted Mr. Laxman as saying.

The contest in the polls turned out to be one among TDP Chief N Chandrababu Naidu (TDP allied with Congress and other parties for the elections) and TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao, which led to a rise in “Telangana sentiment” among the people, Mr. Laxman claimed. “This helped the TRS,” he said.
