Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday at the BJP national executive meeting in Hyderabad referred to the Telangana capital as Bhagyanagar during his address to the party functionaries from across the country.
The Prime Minister said that it was in Bhagyanagar that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel laid the foundation of "Ek Bharat (United India)" by integrating the region into the Union and it is the BJP's historical obligation to build "Shreshtha Bharat".
"PM Modi said that Hyderabad is Bhagyanagar which is a significant for all of us. Sardar Patel kept the foundation of a unified India and now it's BJP's responsibility to carry it further," BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said quoting the Prime Minister.
Meanwhile, PM Modi asserted that the party's goal should be "fulfilment of all" as against the opposition's "politics of appeasement".
He also said the country was fed up with dynastic politics and dynastic political parties and added that it would be difficult for such parties to survive long.
The PM also hit back at opposition parties for questioning the BJP's democratic credentials and asked what is the status of democracy within their organisations.
He asked the BJP workers to undertake a "Sneh Yatra" and reach out to all sections of society.
Earlier today, asserting that the next 30 to 40 years will be the era of the BJP which will make India a "vishwa guru" (world leader), Union Home Minister and senior BJP leader Amit Shah said the party will end "family rule" in Telangana and West Bengal and also form governments in states where power has so far remained out of its reach.
He identified southern India as the region for the party's next round of growth and said the opposition had become disjointed and dispirited with members of the Congress fighting for democracy within their organisation as its ruling family clung to its position.
