Union Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya said that only BJP had the ability to transform Hyderabad into a world-class and clean city. Speaking in the BJP's Greater Hyderabad unit's working committee meeting, he said that he would try his best by talking to his colleagues about the development of the city.
Dattatreya said that very soon four developmental works would be started in the State with help of Centre. He informed that Union Minister for Transport Nitin Gadkari would lay foundations for converting the Srisailam and Warangal Road into a four-line road and flyover in Amberpet with a cost of Rs 136 crore. The BJP leader asked party workers to gear up for the Greater Hyderabad municipal elections by enrolling more members. He said the main fight for the party was against the TRS, but not against Congress. The Union Minister asked the party workers to take the developmental works of the Centre to the people.
"Our agenda is development and a few parties particularly the left parties are trying to divert people with false propaganda of saffronising the country," said Dattatreya. He asked the BJP members to complete the target of enrolling 8 lakh members in the GHMC. BJP's National General Secretary P Muralidhar Rao called upon the party workers to make Hyderabad a fortress for BJP. He said it was possible only for the BJP to stop anti-India policies and communalism in the country. "Ensure that a person who has faith and confidence in Prime Minister Narendra Modi is made a member of the party in 7,000 booths in GHMC," said Rao.
The BJP leader said the party strengthened its base in Telangana over the years and now the GHMC elections present a good opportunity to grow. For bringing change in Telangana, the change should begin from Hyderabad, he said adding that only BJP was a strong alternative to TRS government in the State.
