Amaravati: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu has cautioned the party rank and file to be extra vigilant on the day of counting on May 23. Addressing party workers from Vizianagaram on Saturday, Naidu said so far the party had successfully fought against all those who conspired to damage the state and the TDP and now the battle had entered the final phase, where party workers have to be alert round the clock.
Naidu said he was time and again cautioning the party rank and file to be cautious because the counting this time assumes greater importance. Even a small mistake could result in a major blow to the party. On the day of counting, the candidates should have most trusted people as their agents, and they should be well versed with all aspects of counting process.
These agents should have hawk eyes while the counting was on, he told the party leaders. They should raise objections effectively, if they find even a small variation between the votes polled in EVMs and the VVPAT slips.
He said the counting agents should not leave the place till the entire process of counting was over and the result was announced. The Chief Minister said Modi and his team will be rejected by the people on May 23. After that the political developments at national level would be at a very fast pace. The TDP, he said, would be playing a crucial role in the formation of the new government. But before that it has to be ensured that nothing goes wrong on the day of counting, he told the party workers.
Among those who participated in the review meeting were Ashok Gajapati Raju, Assembly candidates of Nellimarla, Gajapati Nagaram, Cheepurupalli, Srikakulam, Rajam, Ethcherla and state TDP president Kala Venkat Rao. They exuded confidence that they would win all these Assembly seats with a majority of over 5000 votes.
The review meeting was held in three phases. First the state president K Venkat Rao held the meeting with all the candidates and leaders. This was followed by another round of meeting chaired by women leader P Anuradha. Finally, based on the reports of the two meetings, Naidu held a final review meeting. Apart from booth-wise voting pattern, he also identified who all worked hard for the party and who acted as coverts and tried to damage the party prospects.
