Hyderabad: Sounding the poll bugle in Telangana, Union home minister Amit Shah hit out at the TRS government in the state for alleged corruption and unkept promises and said his party is ready to face the polls, due in the state next year.
Addressing a public meeting which marked the culmination of state BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar’s second phase of ‘padayatra’ (foot march), Shah appealed to the electorate to defeat the ruling TRS and make the saffron party successful in the 2023 elections.
“Do we need to change the Nizam of Telangana or not,” he asked the gathering, in an obvious reference to chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. Accusing the TRS government of failing to fulfil the major planks of separate Telangana agitation of “water, funds and jobs”, Shah said BJP, if elected to power, would implement them.

He also said his party would end minority reservations in the state and increase the quota for STs, SCs and backward classes.
Shah expressed confidence of BJP coming to power in the state in the hustings next year and urged the voters to elect the saffron party to usher in a secure and prosperous Telangana. Referring to TRS poll symbol of car, Shah charged that its steering is in the hands of AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi.
On the alleged highhandedness against BJP activists, he claimed attempts were on to make Telangana like West Bengal.
