Amaravati: Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief Chandrababu Naidu on Tuesday was unanimously elected as the leader of the legislature party in a meeting of newly elected MLAs at his Undavalli residence.
The meeting also saw the leader trying to build-up his party men's confidence given the devastating defeat at the Lok Sabha polls. "Don’t panic. Victory and defeat are a part of politics," he said.
Naidu also lauded the Chief Minister of the neighbouring Telangana state citing how he had started his movement for bifurcation and managed to become chief minister twice.
"We have taken up lot of developmental and welfare activities," He added.
Analyzing the election results, Babu stated that TDP got 39.2 percent of votes and will respect the judgement of the people.
Naidu decided not to personally attend the swearing-in ceremony of CM-elect Jagan Mohan Reddy and will be sending a team of party leaders.
Naidu has appointed Galla Jayadev as a Parliamentary Party leader of their party. Jayadev hails from Guntur parliamentary constituency.
Meanwhile, Srikakulam MP Rammohan Naidu has been selected as Party leader in Loksabha and YS Chowdary as the leader in Rajya Sabha.
53 years old Jayadev was active in the last Lok Sabha and fought for special status for Andhra Pradesh. His speech during the no-confidence motion had drawn the attention of the house and even Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
31 years Rammohan Naidu is the son of former union minister late Yerrannaidu.
YS Chowdary alias Sujana Chowdary is an industrialist and reelected to Rajya Sabha in 2016.
TDP faced a drubbing in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls and the simultaneously held Assembly elections, winning 23 and three respectively.
