He had addressed meetings at Nizamabad and Mahabubnagar last week.
Modi, in his campaigns, had lacerated Telangana’s ruling TRS and the Congress for perpetuating “family rule” and pursuing “vote bank” politics that harm development like “termites”.
Calling the two parties two sides of the same coin, Modi had recalled caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s “apprenticeship” with the Congress and claimed that they were playing a “friendly match” in the assembly polls.
BJP chief Amit Shah will also campaign in poll-Telangana today, where he will start the day with visit to Sanwaliya Seth temple and Balaji temple in Chittorgarh, followed by four public meetings in Chittorgarh, Pratapgarh, Bundi and Madhopur.
Shah, on his part, has so far addressed about 10 election meetings in Telangana and requested people to give a chance to his party to rule the state.
