"Besides political issues, we will discuss development and welfare programmes that are being implemented in Andhra Pradesh where the party is in power. We will also discuss steps to strengthen the party in AP and Telangana," TDP politburo member and AP unit president K Kala Venkata Rao told reporters after the meeting.

The politburo discussed the prevailing drought conditions in the state and the steps being taken to mitigate them, he added. The issue of Central assistance to AP in accordance with the AP Reorganisation Act also came up for discussion.

By attracting more MLAs from the lone opposition YSR Congress, the TDP hopes to clinch the fourth seat as well.

The TDP so far admitted 16 MLAs of YSRC into its fold and is looking at the possible defection of some more in the coming days.
