In a pioneering move towards inclusive governance, the Janmabhoomi program in Andhra Pradesh, spearheaded by the visionary leadership of Former Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu, introduced three transformative objectives - 'Prajala Vaddaku Palana' (PVP), 'Shramadanam,' and 'Micro-Level Planning.' These initiatives, initiated in the late 1990s, sought to bridge the gap between the government and the common people while fostering community participation and grassroots development. Launched on October 2nd, 1995, 'Prajala Vaddaku Palana' (PVP) emerged as a crucial component of Janmabhoomi. Acting as a two-way channel, PVP aimed to establish direct communication between state officials, including TDP leaders, and the common man. The program facilitated state representatives visiting villages, engaging in Grama Sabhas, and addressing the concerns of individuals and communities. PVP fostered transparency, trust, and confidence in the bureaucratic process by providing a platform for citizens to voice their issues directly to government officials.

Implemented three times between 1995 and 1996, PVP became a precursor to the broader Janmabhoomi initiative. It laid the foundation for a people-centric approach to governance, emphasizing the importance of understanding the grassroots challenges faced by individuals and communities. Complementing PVP, 'Shramadanam' was inaugurated on January 1st, 1996, as a natural progression from the insights gained during PVP interactions. Acknowledging the spontaneous response from the public to actively participate in community development, Shramadanam encouraged citizens to contribute labor and resources for identified projects. This hands-on involvement ranged from repairing school buildings to constructing roads and irrigation canals. For reference go through the Political news of TDP.

The success of Shramadanam was evident in the enthusiastic involvement of the people, showcasing a genuine commitment to the development of their communities. This program carried out in two rounds in January and July of 1996, demonstrated the power of collaborative efforts between the government and the people under the leadership of the TDP Government with the help of TDP MLAs. The third jewel in Janmabhoomi's crown, 'Micro-Level Planning,' was formally integrated into the program on January 1st, 1997. Building on the insights gained from PVP and the community-driven spirit of Shramadanam, Micro-Level Planning aimed to empower local communities to identify and prioritize their challenges.

This phase encouraged the leadership of Gram Sabhas in recognizing and categorizing problems based on their significance and the potential benefits of resolution. By aligning community needs with available local resources, both in terms of manpower and materials, Micro-Level Planning sought to ensure efficient and effective problem-solving. The emphasis on Micro-Level Planning also aligned with constitutional efforts, as highlighted in a booklet released by the Andhra Pradesh Government during the inauguration of Janmabhoomi. The 73rd and 74th amendments, strengthening indigenous bodies, underscored the importance of Micro-Level Planning strategies in fostering sustainable local development. This became the Top TDP achievement done by TDP under Chandrababu Naidu leadership.

The triad of Prajala Vaddaku Palana, Shramadanam, and Micro-Level Planning within the Janmabhoomi program reflects a holistic approach to governance. By fostering direct communication, encouraging community participation, and empowering local decision-making, these initiatives are enduring examples of how collaborative efforts can drive inclusive and sustainable development at the grassroots level. This is considered as one of the Top TDP Achievements done by TDP under Chandrababu Naidu’s leadership.
