Hyderabad: Its trouncing in the Huzurnagar byelection notwithstanding, the BJP is confident that the party will come to power in the next Assembly election in the state. The BJP came fourth and lost its deposit. It currently has just one legislator in the Assembly.
Putting up a brave face, BJP national executive member and MLC, N. Ramchander Rao, said the BJP contested the by-election to give a symbolic fight to the TRS. “Our fight against the policies of the TRS government will continue,” he said.
Of the Assembly polls in Haryana and Maharashtra, he said the people of those states were inclined towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi and voted for the BJP. In the same way, the BJP will see a massive victory in the municipal elections in Telangana state.
“We will continue to work for the people and surely the BJP will form government in the next elections,” he hoped.
BJP national spokesperson Krishna Saagar Rao said the loss would not diminish the BJP’s spirit to fight against the “misgovernance” of the Chandrasekhar Rao government.
“The BJP strongly feels that the people deserve better governance, which only we can deliver. The TRS might have won a small battle now, but the BJP will win the war. We will build the organisational strength and people connect by the next election,” he said.
T.R. Sriniwas, BJP leader, said his party contested Huzurnagar only to strengthen itself. “The BJP has proved that it is loved by the people in Haryana and Maharashtra. The TRS government has got exposed by its anti-people policies and false promises that KCR made before coming to power,” he claimed.
