Lagadapati Rajagopal Puts 'Check' To Upendra

Vijayawada: Former Union Minister and veteran politician Parvataneni Upendra, who has been keeping a low profile since 2004 elections, wanted to jump into active politics these days. 

It was heard from the family circles, that Upendra would join Chiranjeevi's Praja Rajyam and would be one among the coterie. However, it has been more than a month that the Megastar had launched the party and every sundry leader is joining the Praja Rajyam except Upendra.

Now, it is heard that his son-in-law and Vijayawada MP, Lagadapati Rajagopal, is said to be the reason why Upendra did not visit Praja Rajyam party office till date. It is a fact that Upendra wanted to return to the active politics to keep a check on his son-in-law. But Rajagopal had a different game plan to win against his father in law.

Rajagopal established a drama that he is not in good terms with his wife, Padma. Padma is Upendra's pet and the former Union Minister would give his life for her. In fact his attachment to the daughter had distanced him from his sons, who also wanted to teach a lesson to Rajagopal. However, it is said that Upendra is keeping silent because of a request from his daughter, Padma. 

The sources said that Rajagopal had asked Padma to stop her father entering politics as that would cause problems to his political growth in the Congress. And Padma is playing the role of Lagadapatii family's daughter in law but not as Parvathaneni's daughter. He had even reportedly laid conditions to Parvathaneni family that he would be 'friendly' with Padma, only if Upendra kept himself away from active politics – particularly out of Praja Rajyam. 

While Upendra looks at Praja Rajyam to hit his son-in-law, Rajagopal has already established his Rajyam in Upendra's family.
