Amaravati: The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) today reconstituted its party organisation, retaining the same old team headed by Chandrababu Naidu and bringing just two new faces into the 17-member politburo.
Also, there are not many changes in the state committees for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana that were chosen after wide deliberations TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu held with party senior leaders here today.
As two of the politburo members- Errabilli Dayakar Rao and Ramesh Rathod from Telangana- switched sides to the Telangana Rashtra Samiti, they were replaced with two new faces- Revuri Prakash Reddy and Dhanasari Anasuya alias Seetakka.
“We did not make any changes in the politburo as almost every member is a senior leader,” Chandrababu told reporters after his meeting with senior leaders.
The TDP, which declared itself a “national party”, retained the same ‘Central Committee’ with Chandrababu’s son Lokesh as one of the four general secretaries. The committee also has five vice-presidents and as many spokespersons.
Heads of party AP and Telangana units were also not changed, with K Kala Venkata Rao and L Ramana heading the respective units.
In Telangana, the TDP decided to continue with a working president, A Revanth Reddy, but no such arrangement has been made in AP though the state unit president is also functioning as a minister in the Chandrababu government.
While the AP committee has 105 members, Telangana has 114.
Chandrababu announced that committees for TDP frontal organisations would be appointed shortly.
