Faced with Protests Against PM, BJP Gears up to Make Modi’s Andhra Pradesh Visit a Success


Hyderabad: The BJP leadership in Andhra Pradesh is making efforts to ensure that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Sunday visit to the state is successful. This will be his first visit to the state after Telugu Desam Party (TDP) withdrew from the NDA led by BJP last year.

A day before the visit, the leaders and workers of the ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP), the Congress, the Left parties, the student groups and the mass organizations fighting for the category of special category for Andhra Pradesh carried out protests, which caused slogans of ‘Modi go back’. Andhra Pradesh, the prime minister N Chandrababu Naidu, in fact, decided not to participate in the official program of the Prime Minister.

After the bitter experience of the recent road show by the national president of BJP, Amit Shah, in Palasa, in the district of Srikakulam, where only a few people appeared, the leadership of the state leaves no stone unturned to ensure that history does not repeat itself .

BJP MP GVL Narasimha Rao said that his party is determined to make the Prime Minister’s program successful and is making the necessary arrangements for it. “We are ready to face any kind of challenge and know how to face them. We have given many things to this state. The TDP is unnecessarily blaming and doing political drama. People can decide for themselves, “said Rao, adding that CM Naidu tries to provoke people to obtain a special status.

Modi will arrive in Guntur on Sunday to present several projects in Yetukar Bypass. Later he will participate in a public meeting organized by the BJP.

The youth wing of TDP would hold protests with empty boats in Guntur to thwart the PM Modi rally. The idea is to remind Prime Minister Modi of his promise he made during the stone laying ceremony of Amaravati, the new capital of the state, by carrying a pot of earth and water and promised all aid to the state.

The TDP has alleged that Prime Minister Modi deceived the people of Andhra Pradesh and did not keep the promises made in the bifurcation act. To mark their protest, TDP workers have also put up fences such as “Modi go back”, “Modi never again” and “No entry for Modi” on the way to Guntur from the airport.
