VIJAYAWADA: Even as the YSRC government is going to increase the number of districts from 13 to 25 taking Parliamentary constituencies as a unit, the TDP went ahead and announced Parliamentary Party in-charges by abolishing the district party president system.
The party instead of naming party presidents for 13 districts, has released the list of Parliamentary Party presidents for all the 25 Lok Sabha constituencies. TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu announced the names of the party presidents for all the 25 Lok Sabha constituencies as well as 13 coordinators. While each coordinator will look after two constituencies, one will take care of the Araku constituency, which spread across four districts.
Naidu made significant changes in the TDP’s approach for balancing different caste and religious equations. The present changes were effected in view of the party’s next generation requirements in a bid to make the YSRC bite the dust in the next elections, a party leader said. The changes will suit the current needs of the party to mould a strong future leadership. The changes will help the TDP members raise local issues and empower citizens to hold the YSRC government accountable, he added.
