Top BJP leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah has ruled out any understanding with BRS led by CM K Chandrasekhar Rao in Telangana. Addressing a party rally in Khammam city on August 27, Sunday, he said there was no scope of any kind of relationship with BRS as AIMIM is an ally of that party. “Can anyone believe we will have anything with those whose ally is AIMIM?” asked Shah.

This meeting of Shah was in fact planned two months ago, but it got postponed due to several reasons. BJP has no major base in Khammam district where the Left parties and Congress are in a strong position. Even the ruling BRS is now trying to expand in this key border district of Telangana.

Amit Shah who always tells BJP leaders from Telangana to work hard and reach masses is not exactly pleased with their laid back approach and below the level performance for several months, or years for that matter. Shah’s comments on not having any truck with BRS came in view of some BJP leaders recently quit and joined Congress for this reason.


Leaders leaving BJP

Some months ago, former minister A Chandrasekhar, from Vikarabad district openly voiced concern over BJP leaders not clarifying whether there won’t be any understanding with ruling BRS in Telangana. Chandrasekhar who joined BJP from Congress again went back to the party recently.

Shah referred to Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge’s allegation, while addressing a meeting at Chevella in Telangana a day before , on Saturday, that BRS and BJP were hand in glove. “I want to clarify that Kherge’s charge is baseless and there won’t be any alliance between BRS and BJP,” said Shah.

The HM mostly talked about the achievements of the Narendra Modi government for the last nine years to the farmers and rural poor. Shah claimed that CM KCR hasn’t done anything to farmers though he talks of being pro-agriculture. Shah reeled out statistics on the performance of the Modi government and compared it with that of the previous Congress regime.

After the meeting, Shah gave a piece of his mind to Telangana BJP leaders and told them to pull up socks at least before the elections. He told them to undertake tours in all constituencies and reach people of different sections. Shah was not happy over local BJP leaders not wooing leaders from other parties.

Union Minister and BJP state president G Kishan Reddy, BJP Rajya Sabha MP Dr K Laxman, newly appointed BJP general secretary Bandi Sanjay and state election committee chairman and MLA Etela Rajender were among those who closeted with Shah. They reviewed the election situation after KCR recently announced 115 candidates out of 119 seats.
