In some days from now T TDP might just be a party with out any significant leaders or say MLAs. In 2014 General Elections the party won 15 seats in the assembly. Now nine MLAs gave hand to the party and joined ruling TRS party.
Following the en-mass kind of exodus of TDP leaders to TRS, Naidu specially requested his son to infuse confidence in party leaders and stop these defections.
An emergent meeting was convened with the TDP National Chief Secretary Lokesh and Revanth Reddy, Errabelli, L Ramana met Lokesh to discuss party situation in the state.
TRS Operation Akarsh and GHMC elections were discussed. Lokesh alleged that the ruling party is encouraging party defections and reiterated that their party cadre is still strong. He appealed to his leaders with the agenda of coming to power in the state in 2019 elections. Even when the tides are favourable Lokesh is not known as a great motivator, now when the tides turned against what can Lokesh do? Can he be of any help for the party? This is litmus test for TDP National secretary. We'll wait and see!
