Former Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao’s grandson, N V Subhash has been named the spokesperson in the new team of Telangana BJP office, bearers announced in Hyderabad on Wednesday. Subhash, who joined BJP ahead of 2014 elections, had earlier worked with the Congress. “I joined BJP after the process of nominations (for 2014 elections) was over. Because, some might would say I joined BJP for party ticket. The party (BJP) is encouraging me. I am looking forward to my job,” he told PTI. “I see him (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) in the shoes of my grandfather. My grandfather took the historic step of liberalising the economy. This demonetisation of big notes is one such bold step by Prime Minister Modi,” Subhash said.
The BJP state office bearers have been announced seven months after K Laxman took over the reins of the party. Laxman, who became the state BJP president in April last, sought to balance caste equations in the party executive, giving representation to backward classes, scheduled castes and scheduled tribes.

The General Secretaries are Chinta Samba Murthy, Premender Reddy, G Manohar Reddy and T Achary.
The other members of the state BJP team comprise 10 secretaries and 10 spokespersons, among various other committees.
