Replying to another query, he asserted that the party is always prepared to face elections.

However, maintaining that the state government is making efforts to overcome the problem, he attacked the main opposition party Telugu Desam Party (TDP) for staging a protest at the chief minister`s office in the secretariat here till midnight last night.
He said that the TDP lacked sincerity and is only interested in gaining political mileage.
He also charged that TDP and the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) of Kadapa MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy were not sincere in announcing measures for the empowerment of backward classes.
