While Mr. Naidu addressed a series of well-attended street corner meetings, the other leaders, both from the TDP and the BJP, quietly lent strength to the campaign with their presence.
While the Union Minister of State for Urban Development, Bandaru Dattaterya, made a brief speech at couple of places, others, including the Tourism Minister, T. Srinivas Yadav, the Mayor, T. Krishna Reddy, and MLA, K. Laxman, just smiled and waved at the crowd.
Mr. Srinivas Yadav walked almost the whole of campaign route and was seen organising meetings and interacting with local leaders on the arrangements.
The entire route was lined up with enthusiastic crowd and women too were present in good numbers. They waved back whenever the Chief Minister flashed his trademark `V' sign. However, at some places dominated by Urdu- speaking population, Mr. Naidu's speech in Telugu failed to evoke much response in the absence of a translation.
