Nandamuri Harikrishna has been denied Hindupur MLA ticket by the TDP. Even after the release of 5th list of TDP's contestants, Harikrishna's name was seen nowhere. On the other hand, Young Tiger Ntr was invited to campaign for the TDP. All and all, the father and the son appeared to have been deserted by the TDP's high command.
Apart from humiliating the father and the son, the TDP sources have reportedly started blackmailing Ntr. A Balakrishna's fan in a newspaper's interview said, " This is the golden chance for Ntr to campaign for Balakrishna and win back the Nandamuri family and the fans. There will be no invitation to the family members to campaign for the party. Tarakaratna, though he was not asked for campaigning, stayed at Hindupur and started campaigning for Balakrishna's victory. Jr.Ntr is also expected to do the same. Else, he would lose the support of Nandamuri fans."
Hearing these threatening words, some of the Ntr's fans laughed at aloud and said, " Tarakaratna is 'Khalee manishi'( idle man). He has nothing to do with the movies. So he will be available for 24 hours service for Balakrishna. As far as Nandamuri fans support is concerned, all these days Balakrishna's movies collected around Rs.10 to Rs.15 crores due to lack of support of Jr.Ntr's fans. 'Legend' would have collected much more share if Ntr's fans extended their support. A resounding hit is enough for Ntr to score double to that of a 'Legend'. Perhaps, Chandrababu repents on his approach towards Ntr after May 16."
