Narendra Modi - Amit ShahWe have been hearing a lot about AP BJP President Somu Veerraju facing the axe. With the back-to-back loss of deposits in by-elections, it is just a matter of time. The other day, his speech at an anti-government Public meeting may have accelerated it.

“Cast one crore votes to Bharatiya Janata Party…we will provide liquor for just Rs 70. If we have more revenue left, then, will provide liquor for just Rs 50,” Somu said. The statement has got brickbats from all quarters and has been picked up by the national media as well.

Social media is trolling Somu Veerraju big time and the Opposition is also using it as a weapon to hit the Saffron party. With the elections coming up in five states – Uttar Pradesh, Manipur, Uttarakhand, Goa and Punjab in 2022, this is very uncomfortable for the BJP leadership.

AP BJP may have never helped the central BJP but has done considerable damage with mindless comments like this.
