VIJAYAWADA: On a day when Congress leaders from Telangana visited New Delhi to discuss seat sharing with the alliance partners of Maha Kutami formed to take on the ruling TRS, a delegation of TDP leaders from the neighbouring State called on party supremo and Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu at his residence in Undavalli on Thursday.

During the meeting, the TTDP leaders, including L Ramana, Ravula Chandrasekhar Reddy and others, disclosed their plan to demand more seats.Though the Congress has expressed its willingness to give 14 seats to the TDP, party leaders were of the opinion that they deserve more. The leaders also handed over to Naidu a list of probable candidates and another list of constituencies the party wants to contest. However, sources said Naidu told Telangana party leaders to desist from seeking more seats and strive for the victory of the Grand Alliance. He is learnt to have suggested the TTDP leaders not to be disappointed if some of them lose the opportunity to contest in the Assembly elections as they will be given priority in the near future.

Later, a few Telangana leaders, including TTDP president L Ramana, left for Bengaluru along with Naidu, who met his Karnataka counterpart Kumaraswamy, to stitch together an alliance of non-BJP parties at the national level.

Meanwhile, stating that the ongoing ‘Grama Darshini’ programme is enhancing satisfaction of people on the government, he  directed the officials to ensure 90 per cent public satisfaction from by January 2019 the present 78.
