Naidu went to Bala Krishna’s house on Thursday and was closeted with him. It is learnt that the two discussed about softening Hari Krishna, who has been keeping himself off party activities.
Naidu reportedly realized that Hari Krishna and Jr. NTR maintaining distance from the party would send wrong signals to the people and Nandamuri fans, at a time when the party has to take everyone along, if it were to win the 2014 elections. It is being said that Naidu sought the intervention of Bala Krishna and asked him to mediate with Hari Kishna and soften him. Naidu is reportedly of the view that party cadres would be enthused only if Hari Krishna and Jr. NTR once again take active part in the party activities.
