I will speak about poachgate at appropriate time: Santosh

Hyderabad: BJP’s national general secretary B.L. Santosh, whose name figured in poachgate and was issued summons by the police for questioning, on Thursday said that he was now quite popular in Telangana.

Addressing a meeting of Telangana BJP vistaraks – full-time party workers – from 119 Assembly constituencies, he said that though people do not know him, his name is suddenly familiar to everyone in the state.

Santosh said that an appropriate response to poachgate and his name would be given at the right time. While he spoke briefly on this matter, Santosh is learnt to have spoken in detail about how the party needs to go about to ‘drive away the present undemocratic government in Telangana’ and bring BJP to power in the next Assembly elections.

He reportedly said, “Those who won using the name of Telangana Talli have now betrayed her.”

State party president Bandi Sanjay Kumar told reporters after the conclusion of the two-day vistaraks meeting, that the BJP will achieve its ‘Mission 90’ – winning 90 of the 119 Assembly seats in Telangana. He said that BRS does not have Telangana anywhere in its name, a state which it had looted

Sanjay said this was similar to a bankrupt company renaming itself. The BRS government does not have money to pay salaries but goes out of the way to give money in other states like it has done in Bihar, Punjab and West Bengal, he added.

He dismissed claims that BJP did not have enough leaders to contest the elections declaring that after his Praja Sangrama Yatra that passed through 56 Assembly constituencies, local party leaders were coming forward and there was a lot of competition for party tickets.

Though a meeting of the state’s vistaraks was not part of the original two-day schedule of the meetings that began on Wednesday, Sanjay said the party sought to use the presence of senior leaders like Santosh, Tarun Chugh, Arvind Menon and others during an interaction with state leaders and state vistaraks.

Chugh, who too spoke briefly to the media, said people were vexed with the BRS government and the corrupt rule of Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao and were ready to send the ruling party packing in the Assembly elections in 2023 and drub BRS in the next Lok Sabha elections.
