Naidu Not To Advance Mahanadu?

Telugu Desam Party president and chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has decided against preponing the party’s annual conclave Mahanadu in the wake of election results.

According to party sources, Naidu has decided to conduct Mahanadu as usual on May 28, coinciding with the birth anniversary of party founder and former chief minister N T Rama Rao at Vijayawada.

However, the Mahanadu would be only for one day, as against the actual practice of conducting it for three days – starting from May 27 to May 29. This year, it will be held as a simple affair only on May 28 and the TDP will adopt various resolutions on the same day.

“If possible, we shall hold a big public meeting to inspire the party leaders and cadre. The decision to cut short the conclave was taken only because there is hardly any time from the declaration of results to May 27,” a party leader said.

Initially, there were reports that Naidu was contemplating advancing the conduct of Mahanadu which would be held from May 15 to 17. Apparently, the TDP leaders felt that holding of Mahanadu on May 27 might not be possible due to announcement of results on May 23.

If the TDP comes back to power, Naidu would be busy in the formation of the new government and the time would be too short to make arrangements for the annual conclave.

At the same time, if the TDP loses power in the assembly elections, the entire party rank and file would be in a state of depression. And Naidu himself would be completely demoralized and would not be in a position to enthuse the party cadre.

May be, Naidu thought advancing the Mahanadu would send wrong signals to the people. So, irrespective of whether the TDP wins the elections or not, he will hold Mahanadu on May 28.

If he wins, it will be a celebration at Mahanadu; otherwise, it will be an occasion to introspect into the reasons for defeat.
