A member of parliament from the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has triggered a row with his remark that party founder late N. T. Rama Rao (NTR) did more for the Telugu people than Mahatma Gandhi.
Telugu Desam Party (Party for Telugu Land and People) or TDP is a regional political party in India's Andhra Pradesh state. It was founded by former Telugu film star N. T. Rama Rao ("NTR") on March 29, 1982, as an alternative to the ruling Congress Party in the state.
In the 8th Lok Sabha 1984, it was the second largest party with 39 members.
