Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is going all out to strengthen itself in Telangana. It made it's intentions very clear by starting Operation Akarsh, in Medak district. The first to fall in to the trap is local Congress leader Nandishwar Goud. He was elected from Patancheru in 1999. He tried to get Telangana Rastra Samithi (TRS) ticket in 2014, but he was stopped from doing so by his Congress colleagues. He lost the election to a TRS leader. Joining BJP is his comeback in to active politics again.
