Telugu Desam Party supremo and chief minister Chandrababu Naidu told the rank and file of the party that he would keep Rs 100 crore aside for the welfare of the party workers from the grassroots. This fund would be used for the welfare of the activists from time to time depending on the requirement. This is apart the health and educational support that the party is offering to its cadre.
Chandrababu Naidu made this announcement at the party review meetings on the April 11 election and May 23 counting. He is busy with the party review meetings now as he is finding more time to spare for the party. He further said that he would give at least two to three hours a day for the party in the days to come. He emphasised the need to work hard together and asked the party leaders to be available to the cadre on every call.
The TDP supremo reiterated that the party is set for a big victory in this election. He said that the farmers, women, unemployed youth have voted for the party. He further said that people have gone to their native places from Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and other places to cast their votes, despite the problems created by the Opposition YSR Congress. He said this election was expected to see greater violence as the YSR Congress wanted to disturb the voting. However, the restraint maintained by the TDP leaders and cadre had spoiled the YSR Congress party’s conspiracy.
Chandrababu Naidu also asked the rank and file of the party to get ready for the panchayat and local body polls, which are expected sometime immediately after the formation of the new government. He wanted them to make the panchayat and local body elections one-sided. “There should not be any scope for the YSR Congress to win even a single gram panchayat this time,” he told the party workers and the leaders.
The TDP chief is tied-up with the review meetings with the party leaders from all the Assembly and Lok Sabha constituencies in the next two weeks. He is also meeting the party’s polling and counting agents to have his own assessment of the party’s victory.
