Hyderabad, Dec 24 (UNI) The opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) will organise a meeting of the backward classes on January 23 at Warangal to highlight the various problems being faced by them in the state.
Addressing a press conference here after the TDP politburo meeting chaired by party president N Chandrababu Naidu, Parliamentary party leader K Yerran Naidu said the party had decided to organise various programmes to highlight the 'misdeeds' of the Andhra Pradesh government.
The party would organise constituency-wise meetings from January 3 to 5 and village-level meetings from January 6 to 12 which would discuss various problems faced by the people, he said adding the meeting also decided to observe the death anniversary of TDP founder-president and former Chief Minister N T Rama Rao on January 18.
Alleging that several irregularities had taken place in the National Rural Employment Guarantee programme which was being ''misused'' by the government, Mr Naidu said the scheme had become a 'big boon' for Congress party workers.
Contrary to the wishes of the people of S Kota in Vizianagaram district, the state government had given licences to Jindal company to set up an Aluminium factory in the area, he alleged.
He said the results of the Gujarat elections was a big lesson for the Congress that the charisma of party president Sonia Gandhi and general secretary Rahul Gandhi would not bring votes and asserted that regional parties would play a vital role in the national politics in future.
The TDP would chalkout a programme to highlight the 'irregularities' in the Indiramma housing scheme, distribution of pensions, jalayagnam, and other programmes and apprise the people about the 'anti-people' policies of the state government.
