'The TDP has been founded by NT Rama Rao on March 29, 1982, based on a historic need to rid the state of the corrupt and inept Congress rule', TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu said.
The Telugu Desam Party turned 29 today. Floral tributes were paid to party founder-president NT Rama Rao on the occasion.
In Hyderabad, TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu paid floral tributes to party founder-president and late chief minister NT Rama Rao at the NTR Ghat here today.
Senior party leaders and several MLAs accompanied him on the occasion.
"The TDP has been founded by NT Rama Rao on March 29, 1982, based on a historic need to rid the state of the corrupt and inept Congress rule. By establishing TDP, NTR spread the Telugu glory far and wide not only in India but also abroad," Chandrababu said on the occasion.
The TDP rode to power in a record nine months upon its formation and worked relentlessly for the welfare of the people, he said.
He regretted that the 1982 situation has recurred in the state as the current Congress government totally ignored the welfare of the people.
A function was also organized in the TDP state headquarters NTR Bhavan to celebrate the occasion.
