TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu marked the completion of 100 days of his Vasthunna Meekosam with a celebration at Madirapuram in Khamamm district on Wednesday. A large number of party leaders and activists attended the event.

Naidu started his padayatra on October 2 at Hindupur in Anantapur district and so far covered 10 districts in Rayalaseema and Telangana regions. Till now, he has walked 1,581 km.

Naidu would continue the yatra for nine days in Khamamm district and then continue it in Krishna and Guntur districts. Originally scheduled to conclude on January 26, Naidu’s yatra will contines beyond that date in view of the good public response. The TDP chief unveiled a 100-feet pylon to mark the completion of 100 days. Speaking on this occasion, he told his party leaders and cadres to get ready to face cooperative elections to be held soon.

Addressing the TDP extended state executive meeting, Naidu said he would intensify agitations on several issues. “I have started this padayatra to know personally the problems of the people,” he said. “I can’t win the 2014 polls alone. Only if every leader and activist continues his relentless fight, can the party win the elections,” he added.

Reacting to the proposal to hike power tariff, the TDP chief said the TDP would organise protest agitations from January 21 to Feb 4.

Addressing the media, the TDP chief said there will not be any alliance with the TRS in the coming elections. TRS had lost its ground in Telangana, he said, adding that the Congress and the TRS were playing a game over the Telangana issue and people would oppose both the parties. YSR Congress is a mirror image of Congress and the party has no right to be in politics, he said.

Naidu said the TDP would give 100 seats to BCs in the coming elections and will also give priority to SCs, STs and minorities.
