Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday claimed that the next mayor of Hyderabad will be from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He thanked the people of Hyderabad “for showing immense support to BJP”. “I am confident after the roadshow that this time BJP is not fighting to increase its seats or strengthen its presence, but this time the mayor of Hyderabad will be from our party,” Amit Shah said.
The Home Minister, who is in the city for civic poll campaign, said that Hyderabad has the potential to become an IT hub. He said infrastructure development has to be done by the municipal corporation even though funds are given by State and Centre. “The current corporation under TRS and Congress is the biggest impediment to this,” the Home Minister said.
Amit Shah said that his party would free Hyderabad from the Nawab, Nizam culture and create a mini-India there. “We want to build Hyderabad into a modern city, free from the shackles of Nizam culture,” he added. He further said that Prime Minister Modi has opened the way for ‘work from anywhere’. “The IT professionals working in Hyderabad are going to benefit the most from this move,” he said.
Targeting the dynastic politic of TRS and AIMIM, Amit Shah said: “We want to move Hyderabad from Dynasty to democracy. Whether it is Owaisi Sahab’s party or TRS, everybody questions us. I want to ask – in such a large state of Telangana, you don’t find anyone?”
Responding to Owaisi who recently said why Centre was not taking any action if illegal Pakistan or Bangladeshis were there in Hyderabad, the Home Minister said: “When I take action then they create ruckus in Parliament. Tell them to give in writing that Bangladeshis and Rohingyas have to be evicted…I’ll do that. who takes their side in Parliament?”
