Huzurabad (Telangana) [India], June 19 (ANI): The upcoming by-elections in the Huzurabad constituency of Telangana are going to be rehearsals for the upcoming 2024 elections, said former Health Minister of Telangana Eatala Rajender, who recently joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Rajender visited his constituency Huzurabad recently and addressed the crowd saying, "The upcoming by-elections in Huzurabad constituency are going to be rehearsals for the upcoming 2024 elections. Huzurabad has turned into a ground of the fight for self-respect."
During his visit, he was accompanied by BJP leaders Vivek Venkat Swamy and Swamy Goud. In the past few days, he has visited several villages in his constituency.
Speaking to the people, Rajender said that he left his ministry and resigned from Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) party "to follow ethics and to respect democracy."
