Will hold BRS accountabl­e for unkept promises: Kishan

- DC CORRESPOND­ENT HYDERABAD, AUG. 1

The Bharatiya Janata Party will do its best to hold the BRS government accountabl­e to the promises it made to the people, in the Assembly and Council session beginning on August 3. The BJP will also demand that the government takes proper steps to assist those who have been affected by the floods.

State BJP president and Union Minister G. Kishan Reddy on Tuesday met with party MLAS Etala Rajendar, M. Raghunanda­n Rao, and MLC A.V.N. Reddy at the party office to discuss the issues that the BJP legislator­s will raise and speak about, and the party strategy in the ensuring Legislatur­e session.

Goshamahal MLA D. Raja Singh, who had won on a BJP ticket but was suspended from the party last year, did not attend the meeting.

Though the BJP has two MLAS in the Assembly, it is not clear if the party will appoint a floor leader given that the ensuing session could be the last for the state

Legislatur­e before elections to the Assembly are held later this year. Though the Dubbak MLA Raghunanda­n Rao was interested in the position, it was not certain as on Tuesday whether the BJP leadership will announce a floor leader, given that the other party MLA, Rajendar is a senior in the Legislatur­e.

Asked about this issue, Raghunanda­n Rao told reporters that the party will take a decision on the issue.
