Hyderabad: Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya who has been booked in the case of a Dalit scholar’s suicide, announced that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) will join hands in the upcoming local polls here.
The BJP-TDP alliance released the vision document highlighting their schemes for the state in the upcoming elections.
“The BJP TDP alliance will fight the municipal elections together and we released the vision document today. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, we will highlight Hyderabad’s presence on the world’s map even more,” Dattatreya told ANI here.
Stressing on the main agenda set by the alliance, he added that the focus will be on ‘clean, corrupt-free and secure’ Hyderabad.
The Congress along with the protesting student faction have been demanding Dattatreya’s resignation, saying he abetted the suicide of Rohith Vemula.
