- Naidu flags off bus yatra of industrialists
- Says alliance will help NDA garner 300 seats
Hyderabad: The TDP alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party would usher in a win-win situation for the two parties as well as the NDA and it was meant for the good of the nation as well as its people, observed N Chandrababu Naidu, TDP chief on Thursday. Flagging off the ‘Bus Yatra’ launched by a group of 40 industrialists and NRIs who came forward to campaign for the party in Seemandhra region, he said that the alliance with BJP had never let down the people on any count. The pre-poll understanding between the TDP and the BJP would help the NDA garner 300 seats and the tally would be up further with many more parties joining after the elections. “Andhra Pradesh is going to witness one side election. It should happen so for the sake of its own future. I need the support of the people at this juncture. A mandate with full majority would help strengthen our voice in New Delhi,” he said.
Appealing to the industrialists to fulfill their social responsibility towards the people, he made a fervent appeal to the NRIs also to come forward to involve themselves in the process. They should spend here at least a month along with others in shaping the new structure of the state. In an obvious reference to the status of the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh, he pointed out that it might not be appropriate to call it the process of rebuilding the state. There was hardly anything built in the region. “We need to start from the scratch”.
“People have the commitment. They should emulate the Japanese who give out more production when they intended to lodge a protest. By imbibing such spirit, the task of reviving the fortunes of the people would not be a difficult talk. We can build a new silicon city in Seemandhra. We can be able to house bigger IT companies like the Google in the new state. At the same time, the state can be developed into the rice bowl of the world by extending due support to the peasant community as well,” he said.
He stressed that the TDP had adopted the best of the practices to finalise its candidates. All those names that figured in the lists announced so far had the highest rating as well as the acceptability of the people. The system adopted by the TDP for selection of candidates was relatively much more effective than the American primaries. He wished that the small group of industrialists that came forward today should swell from 40 to 400 and to 4000 so as to give a new direction to the process of development.
