In a bit to improve BJP’s chances in Seemandhra, Modi was quick to play the anti-Congress card. After the news of bifurcation broke out, Modi said that Seemandhra is also a part of India and the Centre did not take into account the concerns of people of Seemandhra region while bifurcating the state.
“Our party tried to take into account the concerns, but the Centre has formed the new state by doing some form of loss to the people in the region.”, said Modi. He said that he would tour in the Seemandhra region soon.
It may be recalled that BJP has recently supported AP Reorganisation Bill – 2013,intended for the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, in both the houses of Parliament. But, Modi is still trying to win over the grieving people of Seemandhra.
