Reiterating that youth would play crucial role in the present day politics, Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday said that the TDP would conduct Youth Sadassus (convention) in four locations in the second week of February.

Talking to media persons at NTR Trust Bhavan here, Naidu said these conventions would be conducted on February 8 at Visakhapatnam, on February 9 at Vijayawada and at Tirupati on February 10. The concluding convention would be held in the city here on February 11.
“This is the right time to induct them into constructive politics in the best interests of the future of the nation,” Naidu said.

Naidu said that TDP proposed to motivate the youth, of which 70 percent of the population were below 35 years and 60 percent were in the below 25 years age group. He said the party would use services of youth for economic development, social reform and infuse fresh blood in the political space of the country.

“What is needed is good leadership and transparent policies to catapult the youth force into a viable instrument of social change in the country,” he said.

He also cautioned the youth not to be carried away by the success of the corrupt elements in the administration and polity.

“Corruption never succeeds in promoting either the personality or the society in the end,” he said adding that the corrupt political leaders should be banned from contesting elections for two terms. He said that the TDP had launched the CMEY campaign earlier to promote entrepreneurship among the youth but the subsequent Congress government had abandoned it.

The credit for transforming the children of farmers into software engineers goes to TDP, he added contending that the youth of AP were able to earn name and fame in 140 odd countries across the world.

Stating the party had already commenced its youth focused approach in its membership drive, Naidu said the party launched an online membership drive to attract the youth and clocked 5,000 members. (INN
