Rajahmundry, May 27: The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) flag is a backbone for the Telugu community across the globe while the front wheel of the party symbol, the cycle, means welfare while the rear wheel means development, observed the TDP supremo, Mr Nara Chandrababu Naidu, here on Saturday.
Addressing the two-day Mahanadu on the opening day Mr Chandrababu Naidu said the ongoing conclave is something special as there is much enthusiasm and energy in the party cadre. “If some people come in the way, let us move ahead by crushing them,” Mr Chandrababu called upon the party leaders and the cadre who attended the Mahanadu.
Observing that the Late NT Rama Rao, the founder of the TDP, brought global recognition for the Telugu society, the party national president said “We are descendants of such a great leader.” Stating that Rajahmundray is the platform for the Telugu culture and traditions, Mr Chandrababu said that this is the land wherein the great poet Nannayya trekked while the historic personality, Mr Kandukuri Veeresalingam is born here and the historic personality Sir Arthur Cotton lived at this place.
Maintaining that this Mahanadu is historic as on the one hand the centenary birth anniversary of the Late NT Rama Rao and on the other 42 year long travel of the TDP, Mr Chandrababu gave a call to the party leaders and c adre to take the Telugu society to the top level in the world. “Yellow is an auspicious colour and people are becoming enthusiastic on seeing the party flag,” he remarked.
Pointing out that the cadre and the leaders have made several sacrifices in the past four years without getting scared of arrests and attacks, the TDP supremo said that he will always stand by the cadre as a member of their family. “I am saluting you all for firmly standing by the party despite illegal attacks on all of you all these years. I am taking the responsibility to come to your rescue in future and I am assuring you all from this platform that I will stand by you all,” Mr Chandrababu stated.
Making it clear that the TDP is ready to face the elections even if they are held much in advance or as per schedule, Mr Chandrababu Naidu said that the party should always work to create assets and distribute them for the poor. “The Chief Minister, Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy’s sole aim is that only he should be rich but my aim is that the poor should become rich and the drivers for this is the TDP cadre,” he maintained.
With the introduction of technology there is no gap between the leaders and the cadre, the former chief minister said that the coming war is like Kurukshetra and the cadre should strive to defeat the Kauravas. The TDP supremo said that all major issues will come for discussion in the two-day conclave.
