BJP ropes in Amit Shah, Yogi Adityanath and J.P Nadda for Hyderabad’s local body election

The Bharatiya Janata Party has deployed former Maharashtra chief minister, Devendra Fadnavis to release its election manifesto for the upcoming Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation polls in Hyderabad, on Thursday.

As per their “GHMC 2020 manifesto,” the saffron party promised free metro rides for women, electricity and drinking water supply to all houses, scraping of the disputed Layout Regularisation Scheme, among many others.

Riding high on its recent Dubbaka by-poll success, the party has unveiled its top brass to campaign for Municipal polls in Hyderabad, in a bid to cut into the ruling Telangana Rastra Samithi’s votes.  South Bengaluru MP, Tejaswi Surya, who addressed the city as Bhagyanagar, broke into the Osmani University campus to address the students, said that, “Whole of South India will be saffronised.”

On Sunday, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar took part in BJP’s door to door campaign, slamming Telangana CM KCR for turning the Hyderabad into a flood city, instead of the promised global city. Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, national president J. P Nadda are among the big guns that are set to visit the city over the next few days, in order to secure a victory in the local body polls.
