Harikrishna Welcomes Naidu Into Native District

Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, whose padayatra entered Krishna district on Monday, received a pleasant surprise when his brother-in-law Nandamuri Harikrishna came to him to personally welcome him into the district.

Harikrishna, who has been maintaining touch-and-go relationship with Naidu all these years, met Naidu on the borders of Nalgonda and Krishna districts in the morning and spent some time with him. He told reporters later that he had come to meet Naidu on the eve of his entry to Krishna district from where his father and TDP founder-president N T Rama Rao hailed.

“It is my home district and I have to be here to welcome the party president on his padayatra,” he said.

Harikrishna has not been actively involved in the TDP president’s programmes of late. He did not even attend the party’s politburo held in Karimnagar district, where Naidu took a pro-Telangana stand. Naturally, his arrival at Naidu’s padayatra sent a positive signal to the party cadres in Krishna district. And more recently, even Harikrishna’s son Jr NTR was all praise for Naidu’s padayatra and wished that it would bring the party back to power in 2014.
