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.
