CM changes tone and tenor

By Our Special Correspondent

VIJAYAWADA, APRIL 22. There is a marked difference in the tone and approach of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president and Chief Minister, N. Chandrababu Naidu, in his campaign in constituencies going to polls in the second phase.

Mr. Naidu is humbly, yet effectively, putting his appeal straight. At every public meeting, he is making it a point to urge people to give him a clear mandate.

The Chief Minister is trying to inject into the people's mind that if they do not support him, "secessionists'' will take over the reins of the State. Mr. Naidu is going all out to strike a sentimental chord with people with his message: "A fractured verdict will spell doom to the ongoing development in the State. I may not be able to perform to my full ability, if you give me a simple majority. I want you to extend your full support. Go for voting in large numbers and exercise your franchise in favour of the TDP for development. You have blessed me with a wonderful opportunity of becoming the Chief Minister of the State at a very young age. Kindly renew your support to the TDP.''
