Speculations are rife that Balakrishna’s second son-in-law and grandson of Gitam Murthy, Sri Bharath, is likely to enter politics. Buzz is that Sri Bharath’s grandfather and Gitam founder MVVS Murthy is expecting to contest assembly elections from Vizag this time. Since Murthy is a former MP from Vizag Lok Sabha constituency and has good track record, he wants to contest Assembly polls.
If he is not given the ticket by any instance, he is agreeing to it on the condition that his grandson and Nandamuri Tejeswini’s husband Sri Bharath would be given the chance in compensation. This is a tricky situation for the TDP as it can’t deny ticket to Tejeswini’s husband who happens to Balayya’s muddula Alludu.
Apparently, Murthy wants to get hold on politics in Vizag. He wants his grandson Bharath to foray into politics and fulfill his wish. Bharath is currently into business. It is still not known what Bharath has in his mind. Already Balayya’s first son-in-law and Nara Brahmini’s husband Nara Lokesh is into politics. He is currently IT and Panchayat Raj minister. Lokesh is expected to contest the assembly polls in 2019 as well. If Bharat too join, then total four members of the family would be in Assembly including Chandrababu Naidu.
Meanwhile, rurmours are abuzz that Bheemili MLA and Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao would be sent to parliament instead of Assembly. While it is yet to be finalized, talk has it that Ganta would be asked to contest for Lok Sabha.
Looks like, it is not going to be easy for TDP to allot tickets for the Battle 2019 as several heavyweights are planning to enter into the field directly.
