State BJP president G. Kishan Reddy has called upon the cadres to expand the party up to booth level by turning the political situation in the State to its advantage.

Addressing the State executive meeting here on Tuesday, he said there was a ‘political vacuum' in the State and the uncertainty that prevailed following the death of former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy was still continuing. The ruling party was struggling to remain in power for the next three years. Congress has been rattled by agitation for separate Telangana State, dissidence in the party, farmers problems, price rise, corruption charges, financial crisis and failure to implement welfare measures.

Criticising Congress and TDP for playing ‘hide and seek' on the Telangana issue, he said the credibility of BJP had increased among the people in view of its clear stand favouring statehood for the region.

Mr. Kishan Reddy said the administration in the State was totally paralysed and there was no coordination between Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and his cabinet colleagues.Faulting the government for failing to mobilise resources although it had proposed a budget of Rs.1 lakh crore, he said that as a result funds were curtailed for various welfare schemes, irrigation projects,, roads and housing programme.
