Mahanadu has started in Ongole. This is the first Mahanadu after the horrendous defeat in the 2019 elections.
In 2019, the Mahanadu was canceled as the morale of the party is at its lowest.
The 2020 and 2021 Mahanadus happened virtually due to Corona.
With elections two years to go and no Corona threat, the party had a grand conclave in Ongole.
The government tried its level best to ensure that Mahanadu becomes a failure.
There were threats to the landowners who have given their lands. Then, RTC refused to rent the buses and private bus owners were pressurized not to give.
The officials did not even allow banners to be put up.
There are police restrictions preventing easy access to the Mahanadu venue.
But TDP leaders and cadres stood against everything and turned out in big numbers.
There were huge rallies welcoming Chandrababu Naidu and the turnout is also huge.
The attendance and enthusiasm of the cadre are an indication that TDP is up for the 2024 challenge.
The energy will motivate the leaders as well to step the pedal.
