Students of Priyadarshini College of Engineering here appealed to TDP president Nara Chandrababu Naidu to give priority for the youth in politics. They asked Mr. Naidu to tell about the future plans of the party in improving the IT sector.

In an interaction programme, Mr. Naidu said he launched the ‘Jana Chaitanya Yatra' to know the opinion of the students and bring reforms as per their ideas. A fourth year engineering student Sahiti asked Mr. Naidu about his plans to improve industrial sector, particularly the IT in future. Responding to the question, the former Chief Minister said the TDP gave top priority for IT and Tourism sectors in the State.

Sustainable economy

Stating that sustainable economy can provide sustainable employment, the opposition party leader said “I am feeling very sad that big industries are being shifted to Gujarat, Bihar and Tamil Nadu as the government is not giving due importance for industrialisation.”

When a student Hemanth Kumar asked Mr. Naidu to make efforts to bring out the black money, the latter said opposition parties have some limitations, but the agencies meant for the job are not acting properly. The government should act with more responsibility to make a corrupt free country.

Replying to a query posed by a young engineer, Karthik on giving priority for youngsters, Mr. Naidu said the TDP has already announced to give 30 per cent seats for youth in the next elections. But, youth are not showing interest in joining politics.

Students should develop multi-level skills like professional and political skills to come into politics and serve the people. Recalling his college days, Mr. Naidu said: “I never used to sit in classrooms and spent most of the time at the cycle stand.”

Earlier, speaking at the party general body meeting, Mr. Naidu said that the entry of Praja Rajyam and the party having alliance with Telangana Rastra Samiti are reasons for the defeat of TDP in the previous elections.

“The party has never neglected agriculture and TDP is the only party which developed infrastructure, roads and improved power and irrigation projects in State. People are ready to vote for TDP,” said Mr. Naidu and asked the party cadre to strive for the success of the party. In the evening, Mr. Naidu participated in a meeting with Telugu Yuvata, Telugu Mahila, BC, SC and ST Cells and interacted with lawyers, doctors, professors and teachers.

MLC Nannapaneni Rajakumari, party polit bureau member Kodela Shiva Prasada Rao, leaders Karanam Balaram, Vanteru Venugopal Reddy, Somireddy Chandramohan Reddy, Gorantla Buchaiah Chowdary, Lal Jaan Basha, Tallapaka Ramesh Reddy, MLAs Beeda Mastan Rao, Kurugondla Ramakrishna and Parasa Venkata Ratnam and others attended the programmes.
