May 26, 2014 - Hyderabad
Thirty-two year old Telugu Desam Party who is on a high of winning 102 seats in the 175 member Andhra Pradesh Assembly will dedicate its victory to the people of the State at the party’s annual Mahanadu meeting. The party is coming to power after a gap of ten years. Telguu Desam which sat in opposition for a decade now is now aiming to become a national party.
The two day party's annual Mahanadu meeting will begin on Tuesday. The party leadership will deliberate several issues before it, one among which is one seeking the national party status. The party has created its presence in Telangana State by winning 15 Assembly seats with a 14.5 per cent vote share thereby allowing it to become a national party.
At the Mahanadu, Telugu Desam will dedicate the party's victory in the recently concluded elections to people of Andhra Pradesh who gave it an absolute majority thereby allowing it's chief Chandrababu Naidu to become the first Chief Minister of the newly formed State. According to TDP sources, the party is exploring the possibility of spreading its operations to the neighbouring States like Tamil Nadu and Karnataka where there is sizable number of Telugu people.
Over 20,000 people are likely to take part in the conclave. The Mahanadu event is held every year celebrating the birth anniversary of the party founder president Dr. NTR Rama Rao.
