NTR's biopic, the latest 'Sankranthi release' not only bombed at the box office, but also delivered a double blow to producer, actor Balakrishna and TDP chief, AP CM N.Chandrababu Naidu.
If the reports coming from Telangana Rashtra Samithi sources are to be believed, senior party leader and Siddipet MLA T Harish Rao is going to be completely sidelined in the party.
Notwithstanding the humiliating defeat in the recent assembly elections in Telangana, the Congress leaders do not seem to have learnt a lesson and continue to crave for posts and positions.
Telugu Desam Party MLA from Sattupalli Sandra Venkata Veeraiah, who was getting ready to dump his party and take a plunge into the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, is said to have received a shock from the TRS leadership.
Contrary to the talk that has been going on in the political circles for quite a long time, Telugu Desam Party will not have any alliance with the Congress party in the forthcoming assembly and Lok Sabha elections in Andhra Pradesh.
Even as the Congress Legislature Party of the newly-elected MLAs is scheduled to meet on January 16 to elect its new leader, tension is palpable in the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee.
Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has been keeping his party legislators and also the media guessing on expansion of his council of ministers.
Apparently jittery over the speed with which the National Investigation Agency has taken up the investigation into the attack on the life of YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu questioned the undue interference by the Centre.
TDP president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu finally seemed to have reconciled to the fact that there is no place in Telangana either for TDP or for himself and that Telangana people cannot tolerate or bear Chandrababu anymore.
Soon after the completion of YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy’s padayatra – Praja Sankalpa Yatra – at Itchapuram in Srikakulam district on January 9, the Centre reportedly started making inquiries about its impact on the political scenario in Andhra Pradesh in the coming days.
Even as Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has failed to muster much support to his anti-Congress, anti-Bharatiya Janata Party front of regional parties, Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is also making a futile attempt to build up an anti-BJP front at the national level.
Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is going to create a new record on Sunday when he completes one month in office for the second successive term.
A special court dealing with National Investigation Agency (NIA) cases in Vijayawada on Friday directed handing over of J Srinivasa Rao, accused in the knife-attack on YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy, to NIA custody for investigation.
It looks like YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is not going to take rest for some time, even after completing the marathon 3,680 km long padayatra in the name of Praja Sankalpa Yatra, aimed at bringing down the alleged corrupt Chandrababu Naidu government.
Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu seems to have learnt a lesson or two from his Telagana counterpart K Chandrasekhar Rao, who returned to power for the second successive term by implementing a string of welfare schemes.
