After the death of Nandamuri Harikrishna, the political dynamics in TDP have changed. His death brought Nandamuri family members together. It was Balakrishna who performed all works relating to Harikrishna’s last rites. Similarly, Balayya attended ‘Aravinda Sametha’ success meet and supported NTR. Analysts say this was Chandrababu’s plan to use NTR and Kalyan Ram politically.
Chandrababu is believed to be taking steps to politically use NTR and Kalyan Ram through Balakrishna. In another month’s time assembly elections are scheduled in Telangana. In this context, Babu is said to have sent a proposal through Balakrishna to Kalyan Ram to contest for assembly from Jubliee Hills. Chandrababu’s thinking is that with Harikrishna’s death sympathy will work in favour of Kalyan Ram.
Balakrishna conveyed this to Kalyan Ram over phone but he rejected the proposal. He is said to have made it clear that for another 10 years he will focus on films and till then he will not enter politics. Thus the plan made by Chandrababu failed. However, he is said to be planning to use them for campaigning. We need to wait if they say ‘yes’ to this or not.
