    Development matters, no place for vindictive politics, asserts CM-designate Chandrababu Naidu

    Chief Minister-designate and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) national president N. Chandrababu Naidu has said that the mandate given to the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) was not power, but a bounden responsibility.?

    “Construction of the Capital city in Amaravati and completion of Polavaram projects are among the major priorities of the government. We have to take up the interlinking of rivers too and ensure irrigation water for every acre in the State. There is no room for demolitions and vindictive politics,” said Mr. Naidu, while addressing a meeting of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) organised to elect the Legislature Party leader on June 11.?

    Mr. Naidu said that the 2024 mandate would always remain in the pages of the history of the State. Not even in the 1994 elections, such an overwhelming majority and vote share was achieved. In this election, the NDA lost only 11 seats and polled 57% votes in its favour. The alliance has made a clean sweep in Lok Sabha and Assembly constituencies, barring a few. The Jana Sena Party (JSP) won all the 21 seats where it contested, while the BJP won eight of the 10 Assembly constituencies, he said.?
