Observing that the electorate in Karnataka voted for BJP as they were impressed by the development initiatives of the Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre, Laxman said the voters in Telangana would also vote for the party on the same plank.
The people of Telangana are looking for a change, he claimed.
Legislative Assembly elections in Telangana would be held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha polls in 2019.
Alleging that the Chief Ministers of Telugu states (N Chandrababu Naidu in Andhra Pradesh and K Chandrasekhar Rao in Telangana) have campaigned against the BJP by sending some leaders to Karnataka, Laxman said the Telugu people in Karnataka, however, stood by his party.
