Hyderabad: Apparently elated over its success in luring several leaders from the YSR Congress party and the Congress party in Andhra Pradesh, the Telugu Desam Party is now keen on conducting a “Ghar Wapsi” (back to home) campaign in Telangana State too. At the same time, the party is also planning to build young cadre in Telangana to revive the party in the State.Telangana unit of the TDP had suffered a major blow after 12 of its 15 MLAs migrated to the Telangana Rahstra Samithi (TRS).

Adding to its woes in the State, around 100 State-level and 200 district-level leaders too followed in the footsteps of MLAs and joined TRS. As the trend continues, the TDP is now chalking out strategies to strengthen the party from grass-roots level.
The impact of migrations was reflected in the party’s performance in civic body polls in various municipalities, including the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC). The Warangal unit of TDP was the worst-hit by migrations.

The party has become weak in districts like Karimnagar, Nizamabad, Medak, Ranga Reddy, Adilabad, Khammam and Nalgonda districts too. As the first step towards implementing “Ghar Wapsi” plan, the party leaders has already started contacting the TDP leaders who had joined TRS and Congress during 2014 elections. “The party is also trying to woo back those who left us recently and trying to get them back,” a senior TDP leader told The Hans India on Tuesday.

The Telangana TDP leaders feel that many of their former colleagues, who joined the ruling TRS party, are not happy there. They joined the party with hopes of getting nominated posts and the TRS party had assured them the same. However, so far the process to fill nominated posts is yet to begin. “Many of the district-level leaders have expressed their disenchantment with ruling party,” the TTDP leader said.

Hence, the TTDP leaders decided contact all such leaders personally during the Statewide yatra planned by the State party president L Ramana and A Revanth Reddy, who would be touring the State after Ugadi. The party is also planning to hold a special function to welcome its former members back. TTDP president L Ramana said, the party would also identify young leaders in each district and train them as the young cadre, so that the party can give a tough fight in the next elections to TRS.
