Though TDP leaders have dismissed Kodali Nani who has given a shock to the party by meeting the YSR Congress chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy and his mother Vijayamma as a light-weight, there is a serious exercise in the party about the aftermath of his departure.
TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu was closeted with several party leaders including hero Bala Krishna and discussed about the fall out.The immediate effect appears to be that entry of Naidu’s son into politics was postponed for the present. Naidu who wanted to make Lokesh as the chief of the Telugu Yuvata, youth wing of the party, appears to have kept that decision on the hold.
Another important meeting Naidu had was with Balayya on Wednesday night. The two were closeted for about 45 minutes and discussed several things including fall out of Nani’s departure and Jr. NTR’s press conference.Balayya has just returned from a tour of America and Dubai where he made efforts to raise funds for the Indo-American Cancer Institute, set up by his late father N T Rama Rao, in the memory of his mother Basava Tarakam. Bala Krishna has apprised Naidu about his tour.
Naidu has reportedly told Balaiah to concentrate on strengthening of the party in Krishna district, as he was planning to contest from Gudivada in the 2014 general elections. It is learnt that Balaiah has agreed to watch the situation in Krishna district, as Gudivada seat represented by his father was of supreme importance to the party as well as his family members.
Naidu and Balayya have also reportedly discussed about new policy of the party on BCs. It is learnt that during the discussion, the two have decided that efforts should be made to once again gain the support of the BCs who stood firmly behind NTR when he launched the TDP.
