This misinformation added with malice and wrong intentions has created a lot of concern and confusion in the mind of people,' TDP National Official Spokesperson Kambhampati Rammohan Rao said in a statement.

When an issue such as the theft of TDP’s data comes up, it is natural that all TDP supporters in India and all over the world take express their anger through social media. TDP data includes the welfare and insurance details of our cadres. This is party’s hard-earned data over last 24 years and reflects our hard work. In 1984, we had computerised details of our 6 lakh cadres. In 1995, we have started e-Seva and mee-Seva centres. Over last two and half decades, the party leadership and cadres worked their sweat and blood and this data is the reflection of every bit of that effort. This data belongs to Telugu Desam Party. It’s the sole property of our 70 lakh cadres. No government has right to steal our data. This data theft by opponents will have serious consequences for them,' the statement said.
