The move is to ease the party work from the Chief Minister who is grappling with the birth pangs of the residuary State.
On Tuesday, Mr. Naidu appointed Mr. Lokesh as coordinator for the Rs.20 crore welfare fund set up for the welfare of party workers.
He directed Mr. Lokesh to hold consultations with party leaders and workers to work out the modalities as also a full-fledged plan for its utilisation.
Mr. Naidu announced the creation of the welfare fund during the party conference, Mahanadu held last month.
