Rajahmundry: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu has added a new word to his lexicon: Mahasamkalpam (great determination).

Mr Naidu is known for phrases such as  “Nenemantunnanante” (what I mean to say is), “Mee gundello nidra potha” ( I will sleep in your hearts), “Dinni benu tivramga khandistunnanu gharhistunnanu” (I am condemning it strongly), “Nenu meku teliyachesukuntunnanu” (I am informing you), “Avidamga Munduku Pothunnam” (We are going forward like that), “Samkshobbamlo avakasam chusta” (I look for an opportunity in crisis) and “Idi charitra” (this is history).

Strangely, some of the phrases which were used by prominent leaders some times do not fit into the situation but they use them all the same. Leaders are always on the lookout for words to express themselves. According to linguists many people use words even though they are not relevant to the context and named them as “repeated words and waste words”.

Mr Naidu has begun using “Mahasamkalpam” nowadays to inspire huge gatherings whenever to motivate them to take part in the Godavari Pushkaralu, as the devotees come with a firm commitment (sankalpam) to get rid of their sins by taking a holy dip in the water.
