BJP to lure second rung TRS leaders, MLA ticket hopefuls – Times of India

Hyderabad: While former minister Eatala Rajender’s likely joining has come as a shot in the arm for the BJP, the saffron party has now shifted its focus to lure disgruntled leaders in the ruling TRS and other parties.
Sources said the party is drawing up a detailed plan on whom to tap and whom to touch base with. But, the party’s attention will be more on second rung TRS leaders, MLA ticket hopefuls and contestants who lost in the 2018 assembly elections. The party will also eye aspirants who lost out on assembly tickets and woo them into its fold, sources said.
BJP state chief Bandi Sanjay Kumar said more leaders will join the party in the coming days.
“BJP is the only alternative to the TRS in Telangana,” he asserted.
On Thursday, a meeting of party state general secretaries was held. The meeting primarily focused on the TRS government’s failures to keep its promises made to the people.
“Many leaders are ready to join the BJP but have postponed their plans. We want to accelerate this process and discussed it elaborately at the meeting,” a senior party leader told TOI.
