Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu has cautioned the party cadre to get prepare for the forthcoming general elections. Delivering inaugural address at the three-day party’s annual convention Mahanadu in Visakhapatnam, he exhorted partymen to publicise the good work done by his government and help the party retain power in 2019 even as he made it clear that “disruptive” elements within the party would not be tolerated.
He spoke at length on his government’s philosophy, future roadmap for the cadre, the party’s alliance with the BJP and indiscipline among some party leaders. Asserting the need for continuation of alliance with BJP, Naidu said that after the State bifurcation, to address the situation that had arisen out of it, continuous help from the Central government is vital.
“We allied with the BJP to contest the elections and Narendra Modi emerged as a powerful and popular leader”, he said. He recalled that BJP has absolute majority like never before at the Centre, while the TDP has absolute mandate in Andhra Pradesh.
For the good of the country and the State, Naidu said that both the parties become partners. He expressed his concern over growing indiscipline among party leaders.
