There are just five days left for the parties when the voter seals their fate in the EVMs. Out of these five days, only three days are on hand to campaign and reach out to the voters. In a bid to reach out to as many number of voters as possible in the next three days of campaign, the parties have positioned their star campaigners to woo the voters.
The Bharatheya Janata Party is roping in prime minister Narendra Modi for an election meeting in Hyderabad today. The BJP, though in power, is poised to win a handful of seats in Hyderabad and it is here that Modi is set to address a public meeting. The BJP had brought several top leaders, while Amit Shah was seen campaigning extensively. There were half-a-dozen Union Ministers and couple of chief ministers of BJP-ruled States including Yogi Adityanadh of Uttar Pradesh. The party wants to wrest the power from the TRS this time but in reality it had failed to prove its strength. Narendra Modi’s meeting in Hyderabad is to woo the urban and elite voters in his favour. It is to be seen if it works for the party in the capital to improve its strength in the dissolved Assembly.
The Congress is bringing in its president Rahul Gandhi for final round. Rahul Gandhi will address a couple of election meetings in the State before reaching Hyderabad for road shows. He would be joined by his new found ally – Telugu Desam Party supremo and AP chief minister Chandrababu Naidu – in the road shows. The two leaders were able to improve the Congress prospects from zero to making the fight too tough and tight.
The Congress had slowly improved its position in the State only after the Assembly was dissolved. The leaders who have been sleeping for all these years and indulging in squabbles whenever they woke up from slumber, remained together this time, keeping the differences aside. More than the unity, they have realised that people need to be told about the creation of Telangana state by the Congress. The Congress leaders were able to tell people that it was the Congress which had given Telangana state and not the TRS. To substantiate their claims, the Congress leaders have brought Sonia Gandhi to the state, who spoke to the voters as the mother of new-born Telangana state. This sentiment had gone well into the people changing the electoral prospects of the TRS.
