Hyderabad: BJP national president Amit Shah will kick off his party’s campaign for Telangana assembly at Mahbubnagar on Saturday.

Before that, he will hold discussions with the state party leaders and review the election preparations and points to be included in the manifesto. Before leaving for Mahbubnagar, he will also offer puja at the Durga temple in the old city’s Lal Darwaza area, a communally sensitive pocket.

Briefing the media about Amit Shah’s programme, state BJP President K Lakshman said that no leader from other parties will be admitted into the BJP during the visit. “The joining will take place at the district levels,” he said.

Lashing out at the Grand Alliance of Congress, Telugu Desam Part (TDP) and others, he said it was “unholy” and without any principles. He also alleged an alliance between the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen. “It is a dangerous alliance” he said.

The BJP candidates will be announced after the election schedule’s release, he added.
