Eye on Telangana: BJP to hold national executive meeting in Hyderabad next month

Hyderabad: With an eye on the Telangana state election, BJP has decided to hold a two-day national executive meeting in Hyderabad on July 2. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP National President JP Nadda along with Chief Ministers of 19 states,40 Union Ministers, and other officer bearers will be participating in the meeting at the Novotel ­HICC.

BJP state in-charge Tarun Chugh and party general secretary (organization) BL Santosh on Wednesday finalized HICC as the venue for the executive meeting. Later, they held a meeting with state leaders at the party office and discussed the arrangements. Prime Minister will stay at Raj Bhavan for two days, while other leaders will stay at hotels located in and around HICC. Though the BJP executive usually meets once in four months, it was not held for some time due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The last time the national executive was held was in November 2021.

Party said that the main programme will start on July 2 evening and continue the next day. Political bigwigs will decide on the strategy for Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, Telangana elections next year. The party will also deliberate on the general election scheduled to be held in 2024.

The saffron party has already decided to send OBC National Morcha president K Laxman to Rajya Sabha from Uttar Pradesh. This is being seen as an attempt to woo the BCs in the state. For the first time, the Central government will also be celebrating Telangana Formation Day in New Delhi on Thursday.

Earlier on May 26, launching an attack against Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), Prime Minister Narendra Modi who was in Hyderabad for the convocation ceremony of ISB, called for liberating Telangana from family-run party rule and said "Pariwarwaadi" party is not just a political problem but an enemy of democracy.

Addressing BJP leaders and workers at the Begumpet Airport on May 26, Mr. Modi said dynastic politics and family-centric parties are the biggest enemies of democracy and the youth of the country.

"Freedom from family-run parties is our dream and commitment. Our efforts are gaining traction in Telangana. BJP's wins in the previous elections are signs which show that a change in the state is imminent, and it is now time for BJP in Telangana," said the PM.
