Nandamuri Balakrishna is likely to contest from Gannavaram Assembly constituency in the 2014 general elections, which marks his entry into electoral politics.

TDP leadership is already on the move to clear way for the smooth entry of its star campaigner. Gannavaram sitting MLA Dasari Balavardhan Rao (TDP) is all set join the governing body of Krishna District Cooperative Milk Diary (Vijaya Diary) which keeps him away from this Assembly segment in the next elections.Gannavaram is always a stronghold of Telugu Desam Party. Dasari Balavardhan Rao defeated Congress rival MV Rao in 2009 polls with nearly 10 percent majority. Congress is lacking a formidable leader in this constituency after the defeat in last general elections. As a result, winning here is going to be a cake way for Balakrishna.

On the other hand, Naidu is planning to target the caste votes in Coastal districts by using Balayya’s craze. So, Nata Simha’s battle in Gannavaram is almost confirmed.
