Vijayawada: The Telugu Desam has decided to select N.M.D. Farooq for the AP Legislative Council. It will be a cakewalk for him in the event of an election as the Opposition numbers are not strong enough Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu had proposed nominating Mr Farooq to woo the Muslim community during the Nandyal bypoll. Likewise, Mr Naidu is trying to dispel the notion that he might ignore his commitments after the immediate requirement has been met.
Mr Naidu is concentrating to fulfilling all the 2014 election promises in a year as that has become a weapon for the YSR Congress. The TD has to fulfil its commitment given to a few leaders to be given nominated posts. The party is indented on giving the TTD chairmanship to a member of the BC community. It has kept on hold the decisions on its organisational committees, which are generally announced in Mahanadu, to avoid upsetting certain leaders.
