Rambabu’s Recommendation to Balakrishna: Take Charge of TDP Leadership:
Water Resources Minister Ambati Rambabu has called upon MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna to capitalize on the current situation within the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and assume leadership of the party.
Rambabu encouraged leader to uphold the legacy of the Nandamuri family and emphasized that the legislative assembly is not the party’s headquarters. He suggested that Balaya and other legislators should address public concerns within the assembly.
Regarding discussions on the arrest of former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and allegations of corruption, Rambabu expressed readiness to engage in dialogue anytime and anywhere. He claimed that the TDP members had evaded discussions and preferred chaos over a meaningful debate.
Rambabu objected to Balakrishna’s symbolic twirling of his mustache and suggested that this was the moment for Balaya to take a more assertive stance. He asserted that Balaya now has a unique opportunity to contribute to the survival of his father NTR’s party, countering rumors that he had not supported NTR during a challenging period.
Highlighting the absence of key TDP leaders, Rambabu pointed out that Balakrishna’s brother-in-law, Chandrababu Naidu, is in jail, and his son-in-law, Nara Lokesh, is in Delhi. He emphasized that this opportunity may not come again for leader to assume control of the party. Rambabu also raised concerns about perceived injustices within Balakrishna’s family, including his own electoral victories without ministerial appointments, while his brother Harikrishna was initially given a ministerial role but later sidelined.
