Trips: In a spirited address to party members during the opening day of the two-day Mahanadu conclave, N. Chandrababu Naidu, the national president of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and former chief minister, likened the forthcoming assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh to the legendary Kurukshetra war from the epic Mahabharata. With an unwavering determination, Naidu expressed the TDP’s commitment to vanquish the metaphorical Kauravas and establish a House of honorable and accountable people’s representatives.
Mahanadu, a biennial event held near Rajahmundry, commenced on May 27 and will span two days. Addressing party functionaries, Naidu reassured them that the TDP was prepared to face the assembly elections, be it in advance or as per the scheduled timeframe in April/May next year.
Reflecting on the past four years, Naidu described the power held by YSR Congress party president and chief minister, Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, as akin to a stone in the hand of a deranged individual. Determined to shield the vulnerable sections of society from harm, Naidu declared the TDP’s unwavering commitment to liberate the state from the clutches of this perceived madman.
Andhra Pradesh Elections Erupt in a Fierce Political Battlefield: TDP’s Naidu Takes Center Stage to the Trips
Naidu emphasized the importance of the party’s mission to create and distribute assets among the underprivileged. Contrasting his vision with that of Jagan Mohan Reddy, he claimed that while the latter sought personal enrichment at the expense of the poor, his focus was on uplifting the impoverished in Mahanadu.
Acknowledging the sacrifices made by party leaders and cadre over the past four years, despite facing arrests and attacks from the ruling party, Naidu assured them of his steadfast support during times of crisis. Expressing his admiration for their unwavering loyalty, he pledged to come to their aid whenever necessary, highlighting how technology has bridged the gap between leaders and the grassroots.
Naidu evoked the legacy of the late N. T. Rama Rao (NTR), the TDP’s founder, who brought global recognition to the Telugu society. Proudly declaring themselves as descendants of this great leader, Naidu proclaimed the historic significance of the Mahanadu event, which not only commemorated NTR’s birth centenary but also marked the TDP’s 42-year journey. Encouraging party members to propel Telugu society to greater heights on the global stage, Naidu instilled a sense of purpose and ambition within the TDP.
K. Atchen Naidu, the president of TDP’s Andhra Pradesh unit, called for the people of the state to oust Jagan from power. He accused Jagan of exhibiting authoritarian tendencies and resorting to false propaganda against Naidu. While the TDP remained committed to the welfare of the people and refrained from seeking revenge against any individual or party, Jagan’s governance had devolved into a destructive rule that fostered nefarious activities, K. Atchen Naidu claimed.
In response to Naidu’s address at the Mahanadu conclave, Jogi Ramesh, a senior leader from the YSR Congress party and the state’s housing minister, criticized Naidu’s invocation of NTR’s name, stating that Naidu himself had betrayed NTR and orchestrated his untimely demise. Dismissing the Mahanadu event held in Rajahmundry as a mere spectacle, Ramesh alleged that Naidu had no substantive achievements to claim in terms of public welfare.Hyderabad: Amidst great enthusiasm and fervor.
