Hyderabad: After the 'padayatras' of TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu and YSRC chief Jaganmohan Reddy's sister Sharmila across Andhra Pradesh, now the BJP is undertaking a programme in all Lok Sabha constituencies of the state to motivate party cadres for next general elections. As part of the programme 'Praja Chaitanya Sadassulu' (conventions to raise public awareness), party's national leader M Venkaiah Naidu would tour various parliamentary constituencies to hold meetings with party leaders.
Naidu inaugurated the first such convention in Secunderabad parliamentary constituency here on Hyderabad. Addressing the meeting, Naidu called upon party workers to propagate NDA government's achievements among the masses and expose the alleged misrule of the UPA government.
The aim of the programme was to strengthen the party at block and village level and to ensure that it emerges as a strong force in the next elections, Naidu said. After holding meetings in all Lok Sabha constituencies, the party would formulate a strategy to face the elections, he said.
Giving details of the programme, party national secretary K Laxman said, as a part of its first phase, Naidu would visit 16 parliamentary constituencies spread in Telangana, Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra regions. Naidu would end his programme on April 27 at Rajampet in Kadapa district, Laxman said.
State unit president G Kishan Reddy and former Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya were among several leaders who attended the meeting on Sunday.
