Ten days after its dreams of returning to power were shattered, the principal opposition Telugu Desam Party will hold its two-day annual conference 'Mahanadu' at the Imperial Gardens in Secunderabad from Wednesday.
Rather than focusing too much on political affairs, the TDP has decided to deliberate more on issues of public concern like poverty alleviation, artisans problems, drinking water supply scenario, agriculture, rise in prices of essential commodities and health.
The 'Mahanadu' will adopt resolutions on these issues, according to TDP politburo member K Yerran Naidu.
He said peoples issues would be the main agenda at the 'Mahanadu' and there would not be any political resolution.
"The party would, ofcourse, discuss its performance in the election in the state, besides organisation issues. But this discussion would be taken up only on the second day of the conference after paying homage to party founder-president N T Rama Rao, whose birth anniversary falls on May 28, Naidu said.
As many as 10,000 delegates are expected to attend the 'Mahanadu', which is being organized in a low-key this time following the party's electoral debacle.
The conference would begin with an address by the president N Chandrababu Naidu and later take up discussion on various subjects.
