“We’re going to free Hyderabad from the Nawab, Nizam culture and create a mini-India here. We want to build Hyderabad into a modern city, free from the shackles of Nizam culture,” Shah said.

He also said the city was benefitting a lot from investment in the IT sector and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had created a lot of opportunities for the youth.

“Hyderabad is benefitting a lot from investment in the IT sector. PM Modi has created a lot of opportunities for the youth and it shows in the faith shown in India by foreign investors,” Shah said.

Shah said this time, the mayor of Hyderabad would be from the BJP. “I want to thank the people of Hyderabad for showing immense support to the BJP. I’m confident after the roadshow that this time the BJP is not fighting to increase its seats or strengthen its presence, but this time the mayor of Hyderabad will be from our party.”

Earlier, Shah offered prayers at the Bhagyalakshmi temple located adjacent to the historic Charminar in Hyderabad.
