Hyderabad, March 1: TDP National President and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandra Babu Naidu has urged Telangana TDP members to strengthen the party organization for the 2019 elections. Interacting with the Telangana state party committee members Babu hoped that the yellow army will retain the coastal state with its strong track record.

The Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister categorically turned down the demand of alleged merger of TDP’s Telangana unit with KCR led Telangana Rashtra Samithi. Taking a senior note of the recent comments made by TDP leaders, Babu asked party members to refrain from commenting on party allice and other controversial issues.

Expressing concern over the leadership crisis, the TDP Chief mentioned that state unit should focus on new generation leadership instead of looking at bitter experiences due to the exodus of the party leaders to other parties. Reacting to the stand of Telangana BJP leaders, Babu claimed that TDP would also stick to its Coalition dharma. Naidu was reportedly unhappy with the move of a junior alliance partner.
