AMARAVATI: TDP National President and former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday paid glowing tributes to party founder N.T. Rama Rao on the occasion of the latter’s 99th birthday celebrations.

Naidu called NTR a champion of food security in the whole country as his Rs 2 per kg rice scheme showed the path and marked the beginning of the end of hunger in India.

The TDP chief recalled how NTR rose to great heights with confidence and determination
celeb though he was born in a small and humble family. NTR would always live in the hearts of the people and he was the pride and guiding light for Telugus all over the world.

Chandrababu Naidu came in a motorcycle rally from Mahanadu venue and garlanded a statue of NTR in Addanki bus stand centre in Ongole town. From today, the next one year would witness programmes by the TDP to celebrate NTR’s birth centenary.

Addressing a meeting after garlanding the statue, Naidu said NTR had put Telugu people above everything else. This was why he sacrificed his 40 years of flourishing cine career and founded the Telugu Desam Party. NTR took the plunge into politics not for power but to fight for self-respect for the Telugu people who patronised him for four decades.

Chandrababu Naidu called upon the people to fight with the inspiration of NTR. The people should realise they were free citizens but not slaves to the oppressive YSRCP rulers. The Government put all sorts of hurdles for TDP’s Mahanadu conclave held on the occasion of NTR’s birthday.

Naidu sarcastically said that the Government did not give buses to the TDP cadres but still lakhs of people arrived and took part in Mahanadu. Whereas, the officials gave buses to the ruling party Ministers’ Bus Yatra where there were only buses but not people now.

The TDP chief called NTR as a matchless and numero uno personality. NTR’s hard work was evident from the fact that he acted in 300 films in 40 years. A multi-faceted personality, NTR was an actor, director, producer, writer, reformer and administrator all rolled into one.
