The significance of his two-day southern sojourn across four states to kick off various projects lies in the fact that he has decided to take the weekend off from Gujarat to travel to Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, and Andhra Pradesh — two of which are heading towards assembly elections in 2023.

BJP takes credit for having improved its votes in Munugode from a negligible number in 2018 to over 86,000 in the present byelection. For the first time, BJP got more than 30 per cent votes in South Telangana, political analyst and columnist Ramu Suravajjula said. Can BJP replicate its success in Munugode elsewhere in Telangana? Noted political analyst Telakapalli Ravi feels that the BJP still has a long way to go and feels bypoll result has reduced BJP’s “hype” that it has “arrived.” BJP not getting majority in urban areas in Munugode constituency where it was hopeful of, is a setback to the party, he said. BJP’s recent successes in Telangana have come where it fielded strong candidates and it would not be adequate to come to power in the state if the party is heavily dependent on strong leaders for its electoral success, he said.

Citing media reports that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao may not attend the Prime Minister’s events though Union Fertiliser Minister Mansukh Mandaviya had written a letter to the former, Union Minister Kishan Reddy said it is very regrettable. Chief Ministers of several non-BJP-ruled states have welcomed Modi during his visits as politics and development programmes are different, he said.
Union Tourism and Culture Minister G Kishan Reddy took exception to billboards installed in the state opposing Modi’s visit and the CPI calling for a bandh in Ramagundam town where the Prime Minister would dedicate a fertilizer plant to the nation during his visit on Saturday. “They call for Ramagundam bandh. On whose motivation the (bandh) call is given, Telangana society is watching. The people of the country and Telangana had given bandh (shutdown) to your party long ago,” he said, without directly naming the CPI. The billboards were installed without revealing the actual identity of who erected them but it is the ruling TRS which is behind such work, he claimed.
The TRS and BJP have been engaged in a war of words ahead of PM’s visit during the last couple of days.

Senior TRS leader and Vice Chairman of state Planning Board B Vinod Kumar said an invitation to the Chief Minister was sent by the Union Minister concerned and not by the PM’s Office. This allegation received a strong rebuttal from Union Minister G KIshan Reddy who said Fertiliser Minister Mansukh Mandaviya had personally extended a written invite to the CM…He accused the TRS of politicising PM’s visit and condemned “Go back Modi” posters put up by the TRS.

The political party in which Telangana had a lot of faith has betrayed the people, Modi said without naming the TRS and added signals indicating that the “Lotus” will bloom in the state. Modi landed here this afternoon to dedicate to the nation a fertilizer plant at Ramagundam in the state, besides inaugurating and laying the foundation stone for multiple development projects.
