The Telugu Desam Party (transl.Telugu Nation Party; abbr. TDP) is an Indian regional political party operating in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana at the state and central level.[8] Since its founding by N. T. Rama Rao (often referred to as NTR) on 29 March 1982, the party has focused on supporting Telugu speakers. Since 1995, NTR's son-in-law, N. Chandrababu Naidu, has led the party. The TDP currently holds three Lok Sabha seats, one Rajya Sabha seat, and is the main opposition party in both houses of Andhra Pradesh's legislature.[9]

Soon after its founding, the TDP won a majority in the 1983 Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly elections. As the state's 10th Chief Minister, NTR was the first officeholder not affiliated with the Indian National Congress (INC). In the 1984 Indian general election, the party won 30 Lok Sabha seats despite the INC's national landslide victory, making the 8th Lok Sabha, held from 1984 to 1989, the only session to have a regional party as the main opposition.[10]

On 16 March 2018, the TDP quit the National Democratic Alliance over the Bharatiya Janata Party not allocating special funding to Andhra Pradesh.[11]

Ideology and symbolism

The Telugu Desam Party follows a pro-Telugu ideology. It was founded as an alternative to the Congress hegemony, by emphasizing Telugu regional pride and serving as the party for farmers, backward castes and middle-class people. Since the 1990s, it has followed an economically liberal policy that has been seen as pro-business and pro-development.[12]

The TDP uses yellow as the background colour for the flag with a hut, wheel and plough symbol in the foreground. The party's official symbol is a bicycle.

Health insurance scheme

Since 2014, every active member is eligible for a life insurance policy of ₹2 lakh to be paid to their family in cases of death or permanent total disability, such as the loss of two limbs of eyes, due to accidents, with additional payouts of ₹5,000 per child (up to two) for educational costs. Active members are also reimbursed for up to ₹50,000 to cover hospital treatment from such accidents.[13]


NTR Era (1983-1995)

In 1982, N. T. Rama Rao subsidized the cost of rice to ₹2/kg to support food access. The INC's failed attempt at undercutting their prices led the TDP to a landslide victory in the 1983 Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly elections.[14]

Telugu Ganga Project

Telugu Ganga Project is an inter-state project formulated to irrigate 5.75 Lakh acres in drought-prone areas of Kurnool, Kadapa and Chittoor Districts of Rayalaseema and upland areas of Nellore District in Andhra Pradesh. It conveys 15 TMC of Krishna water to Chennai City for drinking purposes from the contribution of three Krishna River basin States, Maharashtra, Karnataka and erstwhile Andhra Pradesh with 5 TMC from each State. In 1983, the Hon’ble Chief Minister of A.P., Sri N.T.Rama Rao and the Hon’ble Chief Minister of T.N., Sri M.G.Ramachandran laid the foundation stone of the S.P.V.B. Reservoir of Telugu Ganga Project, which was inaugurated by the then-Prime Minister of India, Smt. Indira Gandhi.[15]

Janmabhoomi Programme (First C.M in India to launch it in February 1996): The Janmabhoomi Programme is designed to involve people in the reconstruction and revitalization of society. It plans to identify problems through Gram Sabha discussions with regional officers, especially in villages. The core concentrated areas are community work, primary school education, drinking water, health and hospitals, family welfare, and environmental protection through watershed and joint forest management activities.[18][19] '


In November 1998, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, then prime minister of India, and Chandrababu Naidu inaugurated the HITEC City (nicknamed Cyberabad) by opening the Cyber Towers, a landmark building in Hyderabad.

The Hyderabad Information Technology and Engineering Consultancy City, abbreviated as HITEC City, is an Indian information technology, engineering, health informatics, bioinformatics and business district located in Hyderabad, Telangana, India.[20]

It was commissioned for the promotion of Information Technology in the erstwhile combined state of Andhra Pradesh, by the then Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, and was inaugurated by the then Prime Minister of India Atal Bihari Vajpayee on 22 November 1998.[21]

It is spread across 81 ha (200 acres) of land including the suburbs of Madhapur, Gachibowli, Kondapur, Manikonda, Nanakramguda and Shamshabad. The combined technology township is also known as Cyberabad.

Cyber Towers was the first tower to be built for the promotion of Information Technology (IT) within 14 months. The attractive, unique design was selected by N. Chandrababu Naidu in 1997 to stand as a monument in the city of Hyderabad and as an architectural masterpiece in the center of Cyberabad, as well as to transform the City of Pearls, Hyderabad into the City of Destiny for IT and Pharmaceutical companies. The city also set up a separate Cyberabad Metropolitan Police Commissionerate and revamped policing under safety and surveillance. HITEC City has emerged as the symbolic heart of cosmopolitan Hyderabad.[22][23]

After Bifurcation from 2014 – 2019 Sunrise Andhra Pradesh-Vision 2029


As per the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014, Hyderabad became the capital of the then newly formed state of Telangana, post bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. However, Hyderabad would remain as the joint capital of both states for a period not exceeding ten years. Amaravati is a proposed city and the capital of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Chief Minister Sri Nara Chandrababu Naidu envisioned Amaravati to be the people-centric pioneer Smart City of India, built around sustainability and livability principles, and to be the happiest city in the world. The Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) was setup to Develop and implement economic development policies for Amaravathi & Capital Region, promote Amaravati & Capital Region for investments from across the globe. Facilitate investments in Amaravati & Capital Region. The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone at a ceremonial event in Uddandarayunipalem village on 22 October 2015. Among the innovative features on the drawing board are navigation canals around the city and connecting to an island in the Krishna River. The Government has envisaged an investment needed of US$2–4 billion for the development of the city.

The State Government identified the Capital City area between Vijayawada and Guntur cities on the Southern bank of River Krishna upstream of Prakasam Barrage. The Amaravati Capital City has an area of 217.23 km2 and is spread across 25 villages in 3 mandals (Thulluru, Mangalagiri and Tadepalli) of Guntur district. The 25 villages in the Capital City area have about 1 lakh population in about 27,000 households. The Andhra Pradesh State Cabinet meeting passed a resolution of 1 September 2014 to locate the Capital City in a central place of the state, around Vijayawada, and to go for decentralized development of the state with 3 Mega Cities and 14 Smart Cities. The government under the leadership of Sri Nara Chandrababu Naidu, has found a solution to the problem to the troubles of land acquisition in building a new capital city using “Land Pooling” scheme. It is the world's largest successful voluntary land pooling, with 27,956 farmers offering 33,920 acres within three months, launching the project. The city is being designed to have 51% green space and 10% of water bodies, with a plan to house some of the most iconic buildings there. It is being modeled on Singapore, with the master plan being prepared by two Singapore government-appointed consultants.[24]

After the 2014 bifurcation of the state, there are 25 Lok Sabha seats in Andhra Pradesh and 17 Lok Sabha seats in Telangana. The National United Front was formed with N. T. Rama Rao as chairperson. Under the leadership of Chandrababu Naidu the NDA government was formed with Atal Bihari Vajpayee as the Prime Minister of India. The TDP had G. M. C. Balayogi as the 12th Speaker of the Lok Sabha. TDP was the second largest party in 1984 Indian General Elections, winning 30 seats with 4.31% of votes, thus achieving the distinction of becoming the first regional party to become a national opposition party. However, in the next election they were reduced to only 2 seats out of 42 contested, which has to this day remained the biggest defeat for the party.
