Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address an election rally at Lal Bahadur Shastri RPT Shastri Stadium in Hyderabad on ahead of the Assembly elections in Telangana on December 7. This will be Modi’s second visit to poll-bound Telangana. He had addressed meetings at Nizamabad and Mahabubnagar last week. Modi will land at Begumpet Airport and address a public meeting and return to the national capital in the evening, BJP Telangana units chief spokesperson Krishna Sagar Rao said.
Modi, in his campaigns, had torn into Telangana’s ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and the Congress for perpetuating “family rule” and pursuing “vote bank” politics that harm development like “termites”.
Calling the two parties two sides of the same coin, Modi had recalled caretaker chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s “apprenticeship” with the Congress and claimed that they were playing a “friendly match” in the assembly polls.
After the Hyderabad rally, the prime minister will also visit poll-bound Rajasthan where he will address a public meeting at Jodhpur on December 3 and in Hanumangarh, Sikar and Jaipur on December 4, a BJP spokesperson said. Polls to the 200-seat assembly are due in the state on December 7 and counting will be done on December 11.
