Hyderabad, Nov 3 (UNI) Contending that the ruling Congress was day-dreaming of winning 230 seats in the 2009 Assembly elections to Andhra Pradesh, Telugu Desam Party(TDP) President N Chandrababu Naidu today claimed that his party would return to power with a clear-cut majority.
Talking to newspersons here, ahead of the party's 'Yuvagarjana' (roar of youth) meeting in Guntur on November five, Mr Naidu said, ''we have no second thoughts(on the TDP's poll prospects). The TDP will win the coming elections with a thumping majority and form the next Government.'' Dr Reddy was only making a ''tall and false claim'' to hoodwink the people, the TTDP supremo claimed, adding that the Congress will have to remain content with only 23 to 30 seats.
The TDP would project the ''anti-people'' Rajasekhara Reddy Government as an accused in the people's court, he said and gave a call to the youth to prepare themselves for a relentless struggle to ''end the corrupt'' Congress regime.
Parrying questions on the number of seats the TDP would win in the next elections, he said, ''we have never hastened to predict the number of seats even when the party won 35 Lok Sabha seats in the past.'' He took strong objection to Finance Minister K Rosaiah's justification that corruption existed in every walk of life.
Taking strong exception to the Government releasing advertisements worth Rs 16 crore to newspapers on a single day to make a ''false propoganda'' on the Government's so called achievement, he demanded that the Government come out with a ' White Paper' on spending money for publicity during the Congress and TDP regimes.
Unable to withstand criticism, the Congress was resorting to physical attack on a section of media, Mr Naidu alleged.
On the occasion, he released a compact disc on the films acted by TDP founder N T Rama Rao and also a website www.tdp.mobile.com to provide party activists with ring tones, caller tunes and wallpapers.
