Therefore, in the local body elections of Hyderabad, it is seen that the BJP is taking off its big stars. Polling for Greater Hyderabad Municipal Elections is scheduled on December 1. Incredibly BJP’s campaigners include Home Minister Amit Shah, Party President JP Nadda, Union Ministers Smriti Irani and Prakash Javadekar, UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and BJP Yuva Morcha President Tejashwi Surya. This bet has also raised some doubts in the mind of Telangana Rashtra Samithi, the ruling party of Hyderabad. The BJP has very carefully set its “Look South” plan as a big priority. For this, Khushboo, who came into politics from acting, was included in the BJP from the Congress a few days ago. BL Santosh, who is emerging as a big BJP leader working behind the scenes, has done the work of preparing the plan and giving it a concrete shape.
After assuming responsibility in BJP from RSS, he is holding the post of general secretary in charge of the organization. This highly significant designation reflects his stature, his ambition reportedly focused towards a larger and publicly accepted role in his hometown of Karnataka. However, he will have to be content with his rival and Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa, who has a large base, Shah has to accept it.
The result of Shah’s recent visit to Chennai to calm tensions with AIADMK, an ally in Tamil Nadu, resulted in the two sides enthusiastically declaring to continue the alliance. Shah’s move to flag projects worth Rs 70 thousand crore here undoubtedly helped. Assembly elections are due next year in Tamil Nadu and Hyderabad can be considered as a criterion not only for that election, but also for the important election of Bengal. Where BJP will see a big effort to remove Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee from power.
This is why the BJP is examining all these tried issues in the Hyderabad civic elections: Jinnah, Biryani, Pakistan and surgical strikes. The effort to make the election communal will give the BJP important conclusions that it can use to give an edge to the strategy for Bengal, where the Muslim population is close to 30 per cent. He is in a decisive role in 100 out of 300 seats in Bengal and is traditionally considered a supporter of Mamata Banerjee.
During campaigning in Hyderabad, speeches are trying to unify Hindu votes and their target is AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi, who has recently proved his importance by winning five seats in Bihar.
Critics consider 51-year-old Owaisi as a vote-cutting “back-cutter” and an ally of Shah, who has also jumped into the fray, as he did in Bihar and spoiled the opposition’s strategy. The moment Owaisi, a four-time MP, openly expressed his strategy to contest the Bengal elections, he was hastily called by Mamata Banerjee as the “B team of the BJP”, who would divide the secular votes in Bengal and he would Shah Is on a mission to fulfill his secret objective.
According to the thinkers, the attack on them by the BJP is to instill confidence in the Muslim voters in their minds, so that they choose them and not other non-BJP parties. This is called Noora wrestling (with results already decided) or WWWF’s fight among the leaders. Shah specializes in creating such a “secret understanding”. In Bihar, for example, the Chirag Paswan-led LJP did great harm to BJP ally Nitish Kumar. He is in second place with a very poor performance in partnership with BJP.
Owaisi denies all allegations of relations with the BJP, then why the TRS and AIMIM question the suspicion of taking out an army of powerful leaders in a body election. Owaisi and Chirag may have a strategic formula prepared by Shah to handle his allies, if Owaisi knows he is not telling. Paswan has been somewhat transparent in this matter, perhaps he did so inadvertently.
The RSS believes that the BJP is now in the main role of Indian politics and has reached its highest position in North India. For expansion in the base, he has to look towards South, East and North East.
However, the TRS, which often appears to be in favor of the BJP when the bill is passed in Parliament, is now getting to know what it means to work together with the BJP, until Shah’s You do not have any “confidential consent”.
