The party will be expanded and there will be committees in every village and town, says G. Kishan Reddy

Bharatiya Janata Party would contest all the 294 Assembly and 42 Lok Sabha seats in the State on its own in 2014 elections, State BJP president G.Kishan Reddy said here on Sunday.

Addressing the party’s State Council meeting after assuming charge as State unit president for the second consecutive term, he said people were fed up with regional parties and took a dig at YSRC honorary president Y.S. Vijayamma’s recent claim that her party would not support NDA grouping in the post-election scenario in 2014. “Did we ever seek the support of YSRC”, he asked and quipped that Congress and YSRC would likely to be merged in the future.

He said the immediate goal was to strengthen the party and ensure that it emerged as a strong force in next year’s elections. There would be committees in every village and town.

Indifferent attitude

Launching a scathing attack on the State government, he said that it failed on all fronts. The State was facing agriculture and power crises like never before and yet the government was least bothered about people’s problems. Mr.Reddy criticised TDP for remaining neutral during the voting on no-confidence motion against the Council of Ministers headed by Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy.

Rajya Sabha member and former BJP national president, M. Venkaiah Naidu also spoke.
