Hyderabad: Union Home Minister Amit Shah landed at the Begumpet Airport in Hyderabad on Sunday for his roadshow ahead of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections.

Amit Shah was given a warm welcome by BJP leaders on his arrival at the Hyderabad Airport.

Later, the Amit Shah offered prayers at the Bhagyalakshmi Temple in Old City in Hyderabad.

Shah is addressing a public program in Telangana and he is also scheduled to attend a roadshow in Secunderabad.

“We will bring good governance to Hyderabad and take steps for transforming Hyderabad into a world-class IT hub,” Amit Shah said.

“Hyderabad has the potential to become an IT hub. Infrastructure development has to be done by the municipal corporation even though funds are given by State and Centre. The current corporation under TRS and Congress is the biggest impediment to this,” he said.

"The people of Hyderabad should also give BJP an opportunity and we want to free Hyderabad from Nizam culture," he said adding the entire country is marching on the development path under Modi's leadership.

On Saturday, BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister also visited Hyderabad ahead of the polls. BJP president Jagat Prakash Nadda had held a roadshow in Hyderabad on Friday. The top brass in the BJP is campaigning for the GHMC polls.

Voting for the GHMC polls will be held in 150 wards on December 1 and the results will be declared on December 4.

In the last GHMC election, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) won in 99 wards. AIMIM bagged 44, with the remaining seven wards won by other parties and Independents.
