It will submit report to State Committee in 10 days

An extended meeting of TDP district committee here on Sunday has decided to appoint a seven-member ad hoc panel to reconstitute the urban and the rural units of the party.

Rajya Sabha member and observer for the district Y. Sujana Chowdary told reporters after the meeting that the panel would submit its report in 10 days to the State Committee suggesting names representing all sections for taking a decision on the party executive for the two wings.

The Mahila wing will have a president too, he said. The meeting was meant to pick up the two executives but no unanimity could be reached at the meeting leading to the formation of the ad hoc committee, it was learnt.

The seven-member committee comprises Leader of Opposition in the Council Dadi Veerabhadra Rao, former minister and TDP district president Ch. Ayyanna Patrudu, former minister Bandaru Satyanarayana Murthy, former MP Pappala Chalapathi Rao, former Minister R.S.D.P. Appala Narasimha Raju, MLA V. Ramakrishnababu and urban unit president Peela Srinivasa Rao.

Comeback trail

Mr. Chowdary said the party was on the comeback trail going by the response to his padayatra that began at Hindupur recently.

He said the party’s manifesto for the forthcoming elections would be based on the feedback to the padayatra of Mr. Naidu.

Padayatra in district

Mr. Ayyanna Patrudu said padayatras would be conducted in all the Assembly constituencies by TDP leaders from September 20 coinciding with the ongoing padayatra of Mr. Chandrababu Naidu.

MLAs G. Rama Naidu, K.S.N. Raju and Siveri Soma, former minister Reddi Satyanarayana.
