Forget state poll, let’s win 10 Lok Sabha seats, Shah exhorts Telangana BJP | India News – Times of India


HYDERABAD: Union home minister Amit Shah on Thursday said that he would visit Telangana repeatedly until BJP wins the confidence of the voters here. He told a large gathering of party workers that he wanted to win at least 10 of the 17 Lok Sabha seats in 2024. Taking a more long-term view, he added that the party could win 64 seats in the next state polls, just like the Congress did this time.
Speaking at a private function hall at Kongara Kalan on the city outskirts, he gave a short but sharp speech, asking party workers to get ready for Lok Sabha elections and forget the loss in the assembly polls. BJP won eight seats in the assembly polls, results of which were declared on December 3, the best show of the party in recent years, but this had not gone down well with the top leadership.

“Some people have asked me why I keep visiting Telangana after losing the . I would say that losers are not those who lost the election. Losers are those who do not work hard the day following the result to win in the future,” he told the workers, adding: “BJP’s future in Telangana and India is bright.” He stated that the BJP would win 64 or even 94 seats in Telangana in the future.

The home minister told the cadres, “We won eight assembly seats with about 15% of the votes this time. In the Parliament elections, we should get 35% of the votes and win 10 seats.”
According to him, the people of Telangana voted against dynastic politics of a regional party, but in the process voted for a national party, which was controlled by a family. He referred to the BRS as a boat that sank even before the November 30 voting and the Congress as a boat that would sink soon. “The Congress has no future as the results of the five state elections have shown. The scenario will be the same in Telangana in the future,” he added.
Shah also reaffirmed the BJP’s “inclusive approach”, saying: “We have given enough priority to the Backward Classes and Dalits, and we will honour the promises we made.”
During the meeting, the Telangana BJP also passed a resolution, stating that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s victory in the 2024 Parliament elections was the need of the hour for the country. “Let us go door-to-door and explain the success of the central government led by PM Modi and why his victory is important for the country,” the two-page resolution said in Telugu.
Earlier, Shah visited the Bhagyalakshmi temple at Charminar and offered prayers before reaching Kongara Kalan. He also interacted with select functionaries from Telangana at a city hotel.
