TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu elected as NDA leader in Andhra Pradesh, set to become CM tomorrow

Vijayawada/IBNS: Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu was on Tuesday unanimously elected as the leader of the ruling coalition, NDA, in Andhra Pradesh.

Naidu will take oath to become the Chief Minister on Wednesday.

Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan proposed Naidu's name as the NDA leader. All members of the coalition, which swept the recently concluded assembly elections, agreed to it.

After getting elected as the NDA leader, Naidu said, "Thank you for electing me as the leader of the legislative party.

Also, kudos to the people who gave the verdict which has never been given in the history of the state."

During the NDA meeting, Naidu declared his government will make Amaravati as the state capital, media reports said.   

"Amaravati will be the capital of our state. We will aim to develop the entire state, not just a few places," Naidu as quoted by The Indian Express..

YSRCP chief Jagan Mohan Reddy, who is set to be succeeded by Naidu, had proposed an idea of decentralised development in the state.

Reddy as the Chief Minister floated the idea of making Amaravati as the legislative capital, Visakhapatnam as the administrative capital and Kurnool as the judicial capital.

Taking a dig at the former Chief Minister, Naidu said the voters have responded by defeating YSRCP in Visakhapatnam.

The TDP chief has been unanimously elected as the leader of the coalition, which swept the recently concluded assembly elections.

The TDP, Jana Sena Party and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which are in an alliance, have bagged 135, 21, 8 seats. YSRCP, which came to power in 2019, won only 11 seats.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the supreme leader of the BJP, will attend the oath-taking ceremony.
