Naidu holds meet to review TDP's election performance

Vijayawada: With less than three weeks to go for the results day (May 23), chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu held a review meeting on Saturday to assess the TDP’s performance in the recently-concluded assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
Besides reviewing the poll trends, Naidu has also set focus on strengthening and preparing the party for the upcoming local body elections and plans to set targets for party workers to win the local body polls. While expressing confidence on TDP’s victory in the assembly election he urged party leaders to work hard and strengthen the party from the booth level.
The review meeting started off with discussions on Rajahmundry Lok Sabha and the seven assembly constituencies that come under it.
Leaders, from the booth level to contestants for the assembly and Parliament constituencies, were asked to submit a report on the poll trends and winning chances of TDP.
Naidu said the leaders at the ground level should have clarity about the party’s strengths and weaknesses, adding that the reports will be compared with the actual results when they come out on May 23. He said the leaders will be given more chances in future based on their performance in the polls.
Taking a serious note on the conduct of some leaders, the chief minister said these leaders are only happy giving speeches but have lost connect with the people.
“Those who cannot win the confidence of the people at the booth level are not eligible to aspire for bigger positions in the party. Though we are winning this election as people have voted for the TDP, we have to build the party in such a way that we win every election,” said Naidu.
Justifying his stand over severing ties with the BJP, Naidu said he waited till the last minute despite the Union government giving a raw deal to the state, as it would have done more damage had he snapped ties earlier.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi tried his best and did everything to defeat TDP by colluding with the TRS and YSRC, but he won’t succeed,” the chief minister said.
Taking a dig at the main opposition YSRC, Naidu said they have started behaving as if they have already won the elections in the state. “They tried to reduce voting percentage by inciting violence but failed. Now they are trying to manipulate the counting process. Party leaders at the ground level should be careful till the counting process gets completed,” the chief minister warned.
The leaders who attended the meeting told Naidu that the impact of Jana Sena is more than anticipated as some sections have aggressively voted for Pawan Kalyan’s party. While some leaders expressed concerns over the voting pattern, others said it would help the TDP as Jana Sena would make a dent in YSRC votes.
