BJP state leadership braces for snap election

Rajamahendravaram (East Godavari District): Although the elections are still two years away according to the schedule, statements by several political leaders suggest that the elections can take place at any time.

The call of the Telugu Desam party leaders in Mahanadu and the statements of the YSRCP leaders in Samajika Nyaya Bheri Bus Yatra reveal the same point. Now the BJP has also intervened in this direction. The party leaders are preparing to organize massive programs to make it clear that it is ready for the elections and to prepare its cadres for the elections whenever they come.

This was also confirmed by BJP State Chairman Somu Veerraju. He told The Hans India that the BJP is ready to face every election. He said the current political climate in the state is completely in favor of his party. Whether the election takes place earlier than expected or not, the election atmosphere is already prevailing in the state, he said.

On the occasion of the completion of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s eight-year tenure at the Center, a high-profile campaign was launched under the name of Seva, Sushasan and Garib Kalyan from May 30 to June 14.

BJP leaders and activists will go door to door across the state to meet people. Veerraju said the various programs introduced and implemented by the Modi government will explain his achievements. Two Union ministers will visit the state on May 31 to take part in the programme.

BJP National Chairman JP Nadda will visit Andhra Pradesh on June 6-7, who is on a two-day visit to PA. He will attend BJP programs in Vijayawada and Rajamahendravaram. The party’s state chairman said Nadda would also speak at a public meeting at Rajahmundry Arts College.

Veerraju said plans are underway to hold public meetings across the state on June 14 also in East Godavari district. He said the money would be credited directly to farmers’ accounts through the Kisan Samman fund scheme, which will be launched by the prime minister on May 31.

Union Minister for Ports, Shipping, Water Transport and AYUSH Sarvanand Sonowal will visit Visakhapatnam, and Union State Minister for Skills Development, Entrepreneurship and Electronics Rajiv Chandrasekhar will travel to Rajahmundry on May 31 to participate in the Seva, Sushasan and Garib Kalyan programme.

The BJP leader said External Affairs Minister Jaishankar will also visit the PA and attend the ceremony in Visakhapatnam on June 12.

Somu Veerraju clarified that the party cadres are also enthusiastic about this and will do their best to adapt the positive atmosphere among the people to the elections.
