After Bhartiya Janata Party‘s ‘poor show’ in Telangana assembly polls, BJP leadership has decided to introspect and analyze reasons for the debacle and get ready for General Elections 2019. BJP in recently concluded assembly polls in the state could only manage to secure one seat against its 5 seats in 2014 polls.
Senior Bhartiya Janta Party leader JP Nadda on Tuesday reviewed the party’s performance in the December 7 Polls and also the preparedness for the Lok Sabha 2019 Elections.
BJP MLC N Ramachander Rao said informing about the meeting with the BJP office-bearers and 119 candidates, Nadda took stock of the party’s defeat in the Assembly polls and asked party leaders to be prepared for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
Rao informed that in the meeting, the office bearers and candidates said the state elections were bi-polarised so the people have not taken the BJP into consideration.
BJP contested the polls on its own and won only one Assembly seat of the total 119. T Raja Singh, who is quite famous for his controversial remarks representing ‘Goshamahal’ constituency, was the only MLA from the BJP who survived the KCR wave in the state and won with a majority of 17,734 votes in the Assembly elections. Earlier this year in a run to polls, T Raja Singh hit the headlines first when he said to change the name of Hyderabad and Secunderabad if BJP voted to Power in Telangana.
