HYDERABAD: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would have candidates in the fray for all the 150 wards in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections and has decided against striking alliance with other parties.
The president of BJP GHMC unit, Chintala Ramachandra Reddy, on Wednesday sought to underscore the party’s preparedness for the polls and said the candidates would be announced in the next two days. “We have narrowed down on two to three candidates for each ward and the list is being forwarded to the State BJP for approval,” he said.
The party was aiming at giving a stiff competition to the Congress and the MIM and hoped it would emerge victorious. By Friday, the party manifesto too would be released.
Mr. Reddy said his party had been demanding elections since the formation of Greater Hyderabad but the government delayed it all these months. “The Congress has been worried at the prospect of defeat,” he said.
The BJP would focus on the government apathy towards the city and how civic amenities took a beating in the process. “We will go to the people on deteriorating standards of the civic amenities and how the government which collects so much in the form of taxes does not allocate adequate budget for development in Greater Hyderabad jurisdiction,” Mr. Reddy added.
