Naidu announced that the TDP would also emerge as a national party by the next general elections and contest not only in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana but also in other states,
Inaugurating the TDP's two-day annual conclave Mahanadu at Gandipet, 25-km from here, Chandrababu dedicated the recent electoral victory in (new) Andhra Pradesh to the rank and file saying the cadre was a priceless asset of the party.
"Transforming AP into the number one state in the country is TDP's aim. Given the fact that the new state will start with a deficit budget of over Rs 17,000 crore, achieving the objective is no mean task,” he said.

"But with the support of the NDA government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the co-operation of Telugu people, the TDP will make the impossible possible," he asserted, amidst thunderous applause by the party cadre.
He exuded confidence that the Prime Minister would extend all help to Andhra Pradesh as promised.

"I will expend all energy that God gives me and strive to make Andhra Pradesh a golden state," Chandrababu said.
The TDP chief found fault with the previous UPA government over the manner in which the state bifurcation process was carried out.

"Equal justice was not done to both states. They took population as the basis for distribution of assets, liabilities and government staff but when it came to power, they went by the level of consumption," he pointed out.
