Must read

Nara Lokesh, national general secretary of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), marked the conclusion of his ambitious ‘Yuvagalam’ padayatra on Monday at Aganampudi village near Visakhapatnam.
A monumental pylon was unveiled by Nara Lokesh to commemorate his remarkable 226 days of continuous walking. On the final day of the padayatra, a considerable number of TDP activists joined Lokesh in Aganampudi village to show their support.
Expressing gratitude to the people, Lokesh acknowledged their unwavering support. Notably, Lokesh’s father, TDP national chief, and former chief minister, N Chandrababu Naidu, had also concluded his ‘Vastunna-Meekosam padayatra’ at Aganampudi village in the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh state.
To celebrate the successful completion of Lokesh’s padayatra, the TDP has planned a massive public meeting on December 20 at Polipalli village in Bhogapura mandal, Vizianagaram district. Lokesh faced numerous challenges during his 226-day journey, including the sudden demise of his cousin, film actor Tarakaratna, the arrest of his father Chandrababu Naidu, the MLC election code, and the impact of Cyclone Mithaung.
It is worth mentioning that Lokesh commenced his ‘Yuva Galam’ padayatra in Kuppam, Chittoor district, on January 27, covering an impressive 3,132 km.
“Lokesh traversed 11 combined districts, 97 Assembly constituencies, and 2,028 villages in 232 mandals and municipalities. His 226-day padayatra is a resounding success, showcasing Lokesh as an efficient and dynamic leader,” commented a senior TDP leader.
During his address to TDP cadres on the last day of the padayatra, Lokesh assured justice for the displaced individuals from the Visakhapatnam Steel Plant (VSP) and pledged efforts for the allocation of captive mines.
Lokesh said, “The Visakhapatnam Steel Plant is the outcome of many sacrifices after a prolonged battle. It stands as the only steel plant along a seashore and is a matter of self-respect for the people of Andhra Pradesh. We will ensure the prevention of the privatization of the VSP,” promised the gathered crowd.
He continued, “Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy has devised a plan to acquire 8,000 acres of the Steel plant land by collaborating with local industrialists,” alleging a conspiracy.
Lokesh concluded with future promises, stating, “Once we regain power, TIDCO houses will be constructed for handloom workers in urban areas, and common working sheds equipped with essential amenities will be established. Additionally, 200 units of free power will be provided to them.”
