When Tdp announced late Nandamuri Harikrishna’s daughter Nandamuri Suhasini as the party candidate from Kukatpally constituency in the recently held Telangana assembly elections, many felt it as a master stroke by AP CM and Tdp supremo Chandra Babu Naidu. Many thought that it will mend bridges between Nandamuri fans and Young Tiger fans as Balakrishna earlier interacted with Kalyan Ram and NTR and even participated in the success meet of Aravinda Sametha.
Speculation increased on NTR campaigning for his sister but reports came that NTR and Kalyan Ram were upset at the unilateral decision of Chandra Babu and Balakrishna without informing them. They felt that it was a trap set by Chandra Babu to force NTR to campaign not only for his sister Suhasini but for the rest of the candidates of Tdp in Telangana and drag him into politics.
Many fans advised NTR against campaigning, reminding him of how Chandra Babu and Balakrishna insulted him. NTR after much speculation decided against campaigning for his sister.
Now inside talk is, to a close friend of NTR was behind his decision to stay away from campaigning for his sister. NTR’s friend after conducting an internal survey in Kukatpally told him that her defeat is imminent and the announcement of her as Kukatpally constituency was a ploy to draw political mileage.
Due to this not only NTR but also Kalyan Ram stayed away from campaigning for their sister Suhasini.
