TDP Telangana statement soon, Naidu

Telugu Desam president N. Chandrababu Naidu has reiterated that his party will give clarity over the issue during the next fortnight.

Addressing the Telugu Desam Legislature Party meeting here on Friday, he told the MLAs that it was time that the party removed misconceptions among people about its stand on Telangana. There was no change in it and this message needed to be sent across effectively for which he would make an announcement shortly. The party should be geared up to face the gains or loss that could result from such a decision.

Having already made a tremendous impact by his declaration of giving 100 tickets to Backward Classes and sticking to the stand of Scheduled Castes ategorisation, it was important that the party cleared the air on separate statehood issue too, he said.

The party president praised the MLAs and other partymen for organising and actively participating in all the agitations related to unprecedented power cuts. “This has resulted in a positive impact on the people,” he said.
