It is an opportunity to serve people closely. As many as 17 issues were covered in Today’s TDP Politburo Meeting at CM’s residence. Politburo Members have given Chandrababu Naidu a free hand to decide the 21 candidates for upcoming MLC Elections. They have appealed party supremo to pick up the leaders who have served the party from 2004 to 2014.

Lokesh, currently the TDP general secretary, is not a member of either the Legislative Council or the Assembly. Since there are no vacancies in the 176-member Assembly, the only option available for him is to get elected to the Council. Now is possibly the only chance for him to become a legislator before the tenure of this government ends in May 2019.  First Phase of Anna Canteens will be launched soon.
