Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday exuded confidence that the Telugu Desam Party would retain power in the general elections due to the hard work done by his government and exhorted those who benefited from the slew of welfare schemes to stand by it.

He called upon members of the DWCRA groups to whom he gifted ₹10,000 each, auto-rickshaw drivers who were exempted from paying life tax on their vehicles and beneficiaries of various schemes to work for him in the coming 75 days as a mark of gratitude for striving for their welfare in the last five years.

Launching the ‘Pasupu Kumkuma-2’ scheme for the DWCRA groups under which the government was giving ₹10,000 per member as a grant here, Mr. Naidu said fears were expressed during his foreign trips on the investments if his party were defeated but he assured the entrepreneurs that the TDP would be re-elected as it was doing everything for the people.

Some of them kept their plans to invest in the Sunrise State on hold with the hope that the TDP would win the mandate again.
