Naidu commenced his second day of Vastunna Meekosam padayatra in district at Bachhodu

Telugu Desam Party president N. Chandrababu Naidu has squarely blamed the Congress regime for the “ordeals” faced by farmers, weavers, toiling masses, and other sections of society. He has accused the government of unleashing “misrule” and coercive measures to suppress mass movements and urged people to become active partners in the agitations against power outages, price rise and corruption.

Mr. Naidu commenced his second day of Vastunna Meekosam padayatra in the district at Bachhodu in Tirumalayapalem mandal. He covered a distance of about 18 km in Tirumalayapalem and Kusumanchi mandals as part of his ongoing foot march, which entered the 101st day on Thursday. He interacted with different sections, including farmers, labourers, weavers, cattle grazers and students. At Pocharam, he alleged that the Congress regime remained insensitive to the power woes of farmers. When a farmer drew his attention to the problem of erratic power supply, Mr Naidu launched a scathing attack on the government accusing it of earning notoriety for misrule and corruption. "I am behind you and we all should fight fearlessly against the government’s apathy in addressing the power woes of farmers and the general public," he said. Touching upon the local issues at Beerolu, he reiterated that the TDP was committed to upholding social justice. “Our party is determined to alleviate the sufferings of farmers, weavers, rural artisans, women, and weaker sections;” he said, adding that his party would provide bicycles to all schoolchildren after returning to power.

Responding to a memorandum submitted by filariasis patients seeking pension, he assured them that he would contribute his mite to espouse their cause. Members of the Global TDP Forum also took part in the padayatra. Mr. Naidu touched Bandhampalli, Krishnapuram, Pedda Pocharam and other villages in Kusumanchi mandal. Khammam MP Nama Nageswara Rao, MLAs T Nageswara Rao and S Venkata Veeraiah besides a host of other party leaders accompanied Mr. Naidu.
