As TDP turns 41, Naidu calls for a renewed struggle for the reconstruction of Andhra Pradesh

Amaravati: As the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) turns 41 on Tuesday, its national president and former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu extended warm greetings and called for a renewed struggle for the "reconstruction of Andhra Pradesh".

Mr. Naidu recalled how NTR had launched the TDP exactly on this day 40 years ago and showed the power of Telugu self-respect to the whole world. Now that the state was facing an existential threat under the present regime, everyone had a duty to fight and regain "Telugu pride".

In a video address to the Telugu NRIs, the TDP chief lauded the Telugu diaspora for taking an active part in Janmabhoomi rural development works for the construction of the state. As of now, the state has fallen back into the hands of forces of destruction. The time has come for the people of the state to rededicate their efforts to restore the Telugu pride, the TDP chief said.

Mr. Naidu said that in its long journey, the TDP had weathered and overcome many obstacles. NTR sowed a strong foundation for the party's pro-poor welfare agenda. He ushered in bold reforms by cancelling the Patel-Patwari system to remove suppression and introducing mandalika system. The Rs. 2 kg rice scheme stood as an ideal model for food security for the whole country, he added.

The TDP leader asserted that in the united AP, the TDP had laid the foundation for a vibrant knowledge economy by developing infrastructure projects in IT and other sectors. Huge wealth creation had enabled greater scope for poverty alleviation. Children of farmers and poor families went to all corners of the world, took up jobs, and sent back money for their parents, he said.

He added that after the 2014 bifurcation, the TDP came out with a grand plan to create new opportunities for the AP people by developing Amaravati on the lines of Hyderabad. However, the present government stalled Amaravati and also chased away industries. There has been no development in the past three years, he alleged.

The TDP chief said it was a matter of pride that the party's NRI units were celebrating the 40th foundation day in over 200 cities spread over 40 countries. The NRIs in Europe extended timely help to bring back the stranded Telugus in the war-torn Ukraine. The NRI TDP units were responding immediately to help those in need of help in times of emergency, he said.

Mr. Naidu said that since its inception, the TDP has been giving top priority to poverty eradication and finding solutions to the problems of the people. The party has now completed four decades of committed services to the people. Earlier, in a tweet, Mr. Naidu had said that the TDP will always stand for development, welfare, and equal distribution of power among all sections. The TDP will go down in history as the only political party that had passed on the benefits of reforms to the village level.
