TDP To Hold Mahanadu In Vizag Despite Opposition From Student Associations
Visakhapatnam: Despite opposition from some student associations, the Telugu Desam leadership has decided to hold its three-day Mahanadu in AU Engineering College grounds beginning from May 27.
Deputy Chief Minister Nimmakayala Rajappa and TDP State President K.Kala Venkatrao performed bhoomi puja at AU Engineering College Grounds to mark the beginning of preparatory works for the three-day plenary.
Representatives of various student associations raised their objection over allowing a political meet on the premises of the AU against the government orders issued earlier by the AP State Council for Higher Education.
The Council issued an order in 2015 that educational institutes shall not give permission to use their premises for holding political or religious events.
Speaking to the media on the occasion, Rajappa said that they obtained necessary permission from the Higher Education Council.
“AU students are on summer vacation and there would not be any disturbance to students,” he added.
The annual meet is expected to host about 20,000 delegates representing various committees and is planning to pass 14 resolutions concerning various issues. They meet will have a discussion on devising a strategy to strengthening the party both in AP and TS and also at national level.
MLC MVSS Murthi, MLAs Velagapudi Ramakrishna Babu, Vasupalli Ganesh Kumar were among others were present at the occasion.
