Telugu Desam Party chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu on Friday asked the party leaders to gear up for early elections.
Chandrababu gave this call at the TDP coordination committee meeting which was held at his residence. The possibility of early polls, source say took centre stage at the meeting with Naidu discussing in depth the possibility of the BJP taking a call on them. Reliable sources said that the party president has asked the party men to conduct public meetings in all districts and inform people about the welfare schemes and development works taken up by the government. He wanted them to reach the people. He is also learnt to have said he had assessed the poll prospects of all the party MLAs and prospective candidates. He reportedly referred to a survey he had commissioned and exuded confidence about the party returning to power with its vote share gone up by 16.13 per cent while YSRCP declined by 13.34 per cent.
