Hyderbaad, Mar 31 (UNI) In an effort to 'lure' the voters of the city for the coming Municipal Corporation elections, the BJP organised a 'Maha dharna' demanding that the government distribute house sites to poor people.
Andhra Pradesh unit BJP President Bandaru Dattatreya, party National Secretary N Indrasena Reddy and party General Secretary K Laxman and other city leaders participated in the dharna, organised at the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) by thee city unit of the BJP.
Alleging that the Congress-ruled state government has cheated the poor by failing to fulfill the promises made by the party that every poor family would get a house, Mr Dattatreya said the poor and middle class people were facing housing problems due to skyrocketing and values.
Warning that the BJP would launch a protracted struggle for the cause of the poor, he said Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy had sold the lands to corporate companies and real estate companies, forgetting the plight of the poor in the city.
