Resolutions adopted on the first day of Mahanadu
Total breakdown of law & order
Hyderabad:The Telugu Desam Party on Monday voiced grave concern over the deteriorating law and order situation in the state. Coming down heavily on the State government for failing to ensure protection to the life of the people especially women, the TDP chief said the government was not bothered about the safety of the common man. Terrorist attacks were on the increase. Factional killings were back again and attacks on party workers and leaders were increasing, the TDP said in an resolution on law and order. Introducing the resolution, party senior leader and retired IPS official R Sitarama Rao said safety of women had become a causality and worrying factor in the wake of increasing violence on women in the country.
Strongly condemning the growing atrocities against girls and women in the state and in the country, Rao alleged that the government's failure in strengthening the law and order was the main reason for increase in such cases. He demanded that the government set up special police stations to address the attack on women in the state. Seconding the resolution, senior leader Rajagopal Reddy and party's women leader Shobharani condemned brutal attacks on women.
Over 200 TDP workers including senior party leader P Ravindra were killed in the government supported factional killings. Jails have turned into the hub of factional killings under Congress rule, they said. Reiterating that his party will continue its relentless fight against terrorism, factionalism and communalism, Naidu said the TDP government had given high priority to law and order, and stringent measures to curb rowdyism were taken.
TDP resolves to root out corruption
Hyderabad : TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday said that corruption had emerged as a bigger menace than cancer during the Congress regime both at the Centre and in the State, and called upon the party cadre to strive to eradicate it. Summarising the resolution on corruption, Naidu said that the scams that had surfaced � whether it be at the Centre or in the State � had pushed the people into untold misery. He said TDP is committed to rooting out corruption and would lose no time in doing so once it comes to power.
He said the former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy and his son Jaganmohan Reddy looted the state . The ministers with the support of YSR and Jagan violated all rules in the allocation of lands and mining of natural resources and resorted to 'unabated corruption' in the congress rule. Demanding that the government confiscate all the assets of corrupt ministers and Jagan and use the money for the welfare of people, Naidu said it was unfortunate that the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy was not removing the tainted ministers from his cabinet even after the Supreme Court issued notices to the ministers in connection with 26 controversial GOs.
Earlier, moving the resolution party senior leader V Narendar Reddy came down heavily on YSR and Jagan . He charged the two leaders with being responsible for the increasing corruption in the State. In a scatching attack, another senior leader A Revanth Reddy said the Congress party office Gandhi Bhavan turned into " Brandi Bhavan' after Botcha Satyanarayana had taken charge as PCC President. The Chief Minister was running from pillar to post to protect the tainted ministers in his cabinet, he said.
Power reforms initiated by TDP need of hour While former MP Kalva Srinivasulu introduced it, Nannapaneni Raja Kumari supported the resolution. Speaking on the occasion, TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu flayed the government for the power crisis in the state. He stated that it had affected all sectors including agriculture, industry. Even students appearing for various exams faced torrid time, Naidu said. He alleged that the reforms and policies introduced during TDP regime were totally neglected by the Congress government.
Special budget for agriculture While MLA Dhulipalla Narendra introduced the resolution, former minister Mandava Venkateshwara Rao supported it. Voicing his opinion on the issue, Chandrababu Naidu alleged that the inept policies and decisions of Congress led to unprecedented crisis in agriculture sector. He stated that his government would introduce special budget for agriculture and press for implementation of Swaminathan recommendations besides linking of agriculture sector with the employment guarantee scheme.
Naidu said that TDP government would ensure supply of good quality seeds and fertilizers to the farmers. Also farmers affected due to various calamities and other factors would be paid a compensation of Rs 10,000 per acre. The Model Farmers (Adarsha Rythu) concept which is mired in controversies would be scrapped totally, TDP chief said.
Naidu compares people to 'clever monkey' Chandrababu Naidu during his speech impressed the workers with his story-telling skills, too. He sought to expose the opportunistic policies of Congress and YSR Congress by comparing them with greedy crocodiles that wanted to feast on the heart of a monkey that was helpful to it. As the clover monkey managed to escape from the vicious crocodiles, so would the people wriggle out of the dragnets laid for them by Congress and YSRCP, he reasoned. TDP chief alleged that Congress party copied many of TDP's schemes like eSeva, cash transfer scheme, and claimed credit for them. Following a heavy downpour at the venue in the afternoon, he observed that even the rain god showered blessings on the party in such a hot summer.
Wax Statue of Naidu a special attraction Taking cue from Madame Tussauda, a TDP activist A Sriram from Tenali in Guntur district created a wax statue of Chandrababu Naidu, which drew crowds at the 32 Mahanadu. The statue was presented to Naidu by party leader D V Srinivasa Naidu. Naidu was shown in a sitting posture in a chair with legs crossed and attired in yellow full sleeves shirt and white trouser. Many of the visitors for a second thought that it was real Naidu who was sitting there in the chair. Naidu also visited the stall and appreciated the work of Sriram and thanked Srinivas Naidu for presenting him the statue.
24 sets of nominations filed for president post Stage is set for election of TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu as the party president for 9th consecutive time. Twenty four sets of nominations were received on behalf of Naidu, according to the returning officer K E Krishna Murthy. Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, Aravind Kumar Goud, A Revanth Reddy, Motkupalli Narsimhulu, Payyavula Keshav, Ramesh Rathod, Errabelli Dayaker Rao, Nama Nageswara Rao, Varla Ramaiah, Ravula Chandrasekhar Reddy were among the leaders who proposed Naidu's name. On the other hand, leaders who supported Babu's candidature included Devender Goud, C M Ramesh, G Sayanna, Sudhish Rambotla, Anuradha and Narender Reddy. The election is slated to be held on Tuesday. But since there is no other candidate in the fray it has become a mere formality to announce Naidu's name. The announcement will be made at 5 pm.
Speculations rife Naidu will contest from two places Party circles are agog with speculation that TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu will contest from two Assembly seats during next elections. He would contest from Kuppam as well as Serlingampally assembly constituency in Ranga Reddy district. If he wins in both the seats, he will resign and make way for his son to get elected from there, party sources say. This will help in smooth entry of Lokesh take a political plunge. If this really happens that it would be the first time for Naidu to contest from two seats in Assembly elections. It will also help him to claim that he was acceptable in both the Rayalaseema and Telangana regions, the sources claim. However senior leaders say that it could be more of a wishful thinking on the part of party workers.
Lokesh set to play major role in party affairs The 32 Mahanadu presented an insight into the things that were in store for the TDP in the days to come. It has given a clear indication that Lokesh was now all set to play major role in the party. The mood in TDP appeared to be upbeat as it not only gave rousing welcome to Lokesh but turned the event into a colourful one. Large stretches from Jubilee Hills to Gandipet were painted yellow and the surroundings of the state capital reverberated with the slogans of "TDP Zindabad" and "NTR Amar Rahe" and "Naidu will be CM after 2014". In his bid to enthuse the cadre.
GHMC floor leader shares B-day with NTR The Floor Leader of TDP in Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) V Prakash Goud welcomed the unity displayed by the Telugu Desam family, which came on a single platform at the Party Mahanadu on the birth anniversary of the NT Rama Rao, the founder of the party.
