No pact with TRS, Amit Shah sets poll machine rolling in state – Times of India
HYDERABAD: BJP won’t go for a pre-poll alliance with
Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), said party national president
Amit Shah on Friday, while asking the leadership and cadre to gear up for 2019 elections and expose the ruling party’s failures.

In an interaction with state BJP leaders, Shah said he would never prefer a pre-poll alliance in any state and wanted BJP to fight elections independently, while citing
Karnataka and Tripura, where it contested polls on its own.

Shah, who came to city on Friday to interact with leaders and workers on election preparation, held a meeting with the party election management committee comprising 17 members, including Telangana unit president K Laxman, MP
Bandaru Dattatreya, floor leaders G Kishan Reddy, N Ramchander Rao, party general secretaries Chinta Sambamurthy, G Premender Reddy and Achary, organizing secretary Perala Rajasekhar, national secretary Muralidhar Rao and senior leader Baddam Bal Reddy for an hour. K Laxman gave a detailed power-point presentation on the socio-political conditions in the state.

Shah said though the party has been organizing programmes like Jana Chaitanaya Yatra to reach out to people in various districts, it was not sufficient. All leaders have to cover all villages in
Lok Sabha and assembly segments, he told them. “Our key enemy (TRS) is strong and we have to strive hard. We are not strong in many segments. Our party leaders should go to the people at the grassroots and highlight failures of TRS government and success of NDA’s welfare schemes like enhancement of minimum support price (MSP) and Ayushman Bharat programme,” the BJP president said.

Shah said the party organization should be strengthened and organizational committees have to be formed by October-end.
