After the Young Turks revolution he returned to Macedonia and was one of the founders of the People's Federative Party (Bulgarian Section). After 1909 he went back to Sofia, where Hadzhidimov joined the Bulgarian Communist Party. During the Balkan Wars Hadzhidimov served as a Bulgarian soldier.

Quotes[edit]

This idea, [of authonomous Macedonia] nevertheless, remained a Bulgarian idea. Neither the Greeks, nor the Turks, nor any other nationality in Macedonia accepted that slogan... The idea of autonomous Macedonia developed most significantly after the creation of the Internal Macedonan Revolutionary Organization (sic)...[4]
