WARANGAL: TDP chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is visiting Warangal on Thursday. After the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, this is his first district level tour programme in Telangana. Chandrababu has chosen Warangal, once the hotbed of Telangana movement, to strengthen his party in Telangana and regain past glory.
According to TDP sources, he will start from Hyderabad and reach Warangal where he will be addressing a public meeting at Hayagreeva Chary Grounds, Hanmakonda with party leaders and activists from 11.30 am to 2.30 pm. Later, he would review the party activities and discuss action plans with constituency leaders separately. Naidu will stay in Warangal on Thursday night and leave for Hyderabad on Friday morning.
The tour of Naidu in Telangana invited strong criticism from the ruling TRS. Though the TRS did not give any call to obstruct Naidu’s tour, speculations are rife that TRS activists might question Naidu’s visit to the district at this juncture.
We will view Naidu’s tour just like a neighbouring state CM touring our state. Naidu, however, should spell out why he is depriving Telangana of its share of power from the Krishnapatnam and Hinduja power plants located in AP,” demanded Panchayat raj minister KT Rama Rao in Hyderabad.
