Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP boss Chandrababu Naidu, after a series of meeting with Telangana TDP leaders, is reported to have suggested that making the alliance with the Congress work was far more important than seat-sharing.
Naidu held meetings with the polit bureau and central committee members of the party and its Telangana leaders. He discussed in detail the current political situation in Telangana, particularly the issues involving the Mahakootami and the seat-sharing. The party president then told the leaders that forging the Mahakootami was more important than the number of seats that the TDP would be allotted.
Naidu also directed the party leaders on the strategy to be adopted during the election campaign, and also discussed the Assembly constituencies for which the party should try to get tickets. He assured the state party leaders that he would take up the seat-sharing issue with the top leaders of the Congress. (It is being reported that the Congress has offered 12 seats to the TDP, and that the TDP leaders are bargaining for six more seats.)
He asked the party leaders not to be unhappy if they didn't get a chance to contest the elections, and to work for victory of the Mahakumtami which would result in good things for everyone.
Naidu may address elections meetings in three to four districts of Telangana.
