With the BJP seeking to position itself as the main challenger to the ruling TRS, its youth wing BYJM will organise a three-day "mega summit" in poll-bound Telangana starting Friday, where party president Amit Shah will address a rally on the concluding day.
The Bhartiya Janta Yuva Morcha (BJYM) chief Poonam Mahajan on Tuesday announced that the three-day 'Yuva Mahadhiveshan' would be held from October 26 in Hyderabad.

Addressing a press conference at the party office, Mahajan said the summit would be inaugurated by Home Minister Rajnath Singh and it would conclude with a mega rally of BJP chief Amit Shah on October 28.
"This will be the party's first mega youth summit in South India and more than 72,000 office bearers of the BJP's youth wing will attend this event, where they will be addressed by number of senior party leaders and Union ministers," she said.
She said more than two lakh people were expected to attend Shah's rally on the concluding day.
About the events and programmes planned for the summit, Mahajan said this exercise was aimed to prepare party's youth workers for the 2019 general elections and a political resolution would be passed during the event.
A special "NaMo zone" would also be set up there, where all youth workers would be briefed about the 'Namo' app and how to use it, she said.
Various chief ministers, Union ministers and all former presidents of the BJYM would attend the summit, she added.
The BJYM was organising rallies in states such as West Bengal and Kerala where the BJP had never been in power and it was aiming to boost its Lok Sabha tally in the 2019 elections.
This is the third such rally in the series.
Telangana will go to polls on December 7 and the votes will be counted on December 11.
