VIJAYAWADA: Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party national president N Chandrababu Naidu will hold a meeting with Telangana TDP leaders at NTR Bhavan here on Monday to take stock of the party’s situation and prospects in the poll-bound State.

As the party has joined hands with the Congress, which was once its arch-rival, and with seat-sharing talks yet to be finalised, Naidu’s meeting with party leaders assumes significance. Besides TTDP’s polit bureau members, State and district level leaders have been asked to participate in the meeting. 

“Our president Chandrababu Naidu will attend the meeting on Monday. He will guide us on formulating party’s manifesto, election strategy, campaign and on other aspects,” said TTDP president L Ramana, speaking to Express.

As the Congress is leaving no stone unturned to clinch power from the TRS in  Telangana, and even allying with its old nemesis TDP, Naidu, who is regarded as a master strategist, is expected to play a key role in these elections either openly or covertly.

As part of the grand alliance, the TDP is expected to get around 10 to 15 seats. It is widely believed that the Congress may give most of the seats in Greater Hyderabad to the TDP to woo Andhra voters.
