During a speech in Suryapet, Telangana, Central Home Minister Amit Shah declared that if the BJP were to form the government in Telangana, the Chief Minister would be selected from a backward class. In the previous Telangana elections, the BJP secured only one seat, but this time, the party has put forth a determined effort by fielding three candidates in the initial list, aiming to expand its representation.
Prominent OBC leaders in Telangana, including Bundy Sanjay, a Member of Parliament and former president, National OBC Morcha president and MP K Laxman, and Huzoorabad MLA Etala Rajender, play key roles in the state’s political landscape. Additionally, the Jana Sena Party, led by Telugu superstar Pawan Kalyan, remains part of the NDA alliance, with Kalyan confirming his commitment to the alliance during a recent meeting with Amit Shah in Delhi. The BJP is pinning its hopes on these alliances to make a significant impact in Telangana.
