Naidu intends to target the Congress rule in the State, by exposing its follies and failures that had set the state back by over 30 years in terms of development.

They include crises in power, agricultural and irrigation sectors, worsening law and order situation and the pressing need for economic reforms.

Sixteen committees have been constituted to study the draft resolutions and suggest if any amendments are required.
