TDP head Chandra Babu Naidu has come up with a new plot to stop Balakrishna from making his political foray.
Babu has been maintaining that one of his family members should contest from Telangana and hinted at Balakrishna being the chosen one. But Balayya despite wanting to contest, is not keen on contesting from Telangana.
In fact, Balakrishna wants to contest from the Hindupur assembly constituency in Anantapur district. He has disclosed the same at a meeting in Kurnool on Friday. Alternately, he said he would contest from Penamalooru in Krishna district.
But his brother-in-law Chandra Babu Naidu is being the spoke in the wheel. He is said to have told Balayya that they should both contest from two different states as he does not want to impact the party’s chances in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.
Since Babu is contesting from Kuppam in Chittoor district, he is said to have asked Balayya to contest from Ranga Reddy district in Telangana.
