Prime Minister Narendra Modi has heaped praises on his party candidate Madhavi Latha, who will be challenging AIMIM's Asaduddin Owaisi's home turf that is Hyderabad in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

PM Modi on the X platform wrote, "Madhavi Latha Ji, your ‘Aap Ki Adalat’ episode is exceptional. You’ve made very solid points and also done so with logic and passion. My best wishes to you".

The prime minister also urged citizens to watch the programme.

BJP has been making efforts to make inroads in Hyderabad. The saffron party has often been the runner-up in the elections.
