The Telugu Desam Party has decided to move closer to people by organizing a mass contact programme ‘Palle Palleku Telugu Desam’ from October 10.
According to details emerging from the Telugu Desam Party politburo meeting convened at NTR Trust Bhavan under the chairmanship of its president N Chandrababu Naidu, the party took a decision to raise the issue of neglect of people during the last six years of Congress rule in the ‘Palle Palleku’ programme.
The party will primarily focus on alleged irregularities in dubious land dealings of APIIC-Emmar, Jalayagnam works and farmers problems during the programme.
The TDP president will cover the entire state as part of this programme. The TDP feels the programme would help the party leadership to gain first-hand knowledge of the people’s problems and strengthen the party base among people.
The party also made it clear that TDP was not against formation of Telangana state. “The TDP is encouraging its party cadre to respect the sentiments of Telangana people,” Mr Naidu is believed to have told the party politburo.
“Some vested interests have been targeting TDP and projecting that it was against Telangana,” he is believed to have said.
