As daughter of legendary NTR, Daggubati Purandeshwari has always enjoyed the blessings of Telugu people- particularly of Andhra Pradesh people although she was in Congress Party.AP People considered her as part of their family and gave a thumping majority in 2009 polls. But, she failed to stand for the people of Andhra Pradesh at the time of state division. There’s a strong allegation against Purandeshwari (popularly called as Chinnamma) only gave a thought to her political career by ignoring self respect of 5-Crore Andhra citizens. As soon as state bifurcated, she switched her sides to BJP and contested from Rajampet, but lost to YSRCP’s Mithun Reddy.
As daughter of NTR, Purandeshwari took a strong objection to a recent speculation that Chandrababu-led TDP will form an alliance with Congress Party in state. ‘As a daughter of Late NTR, I totally oppose the political move. NTR launched TDP against Congress Party and always opposed the ideologies of them. So, I think it is going to be an unacceptable political mistake,’ said Chinnamma.
Though her statement is right as daughter of NTR, she now has to offer reasons why she had to join Congress, contest as their MP for two times and work as minister in their government. Her attack on Telugu Desham is now pointing back at her and she is equally responsible to tell AP people what political intentions she had in joining Congress Party by ignoring his father’s TDP.
If she offers a clarification about her past, Chandrababu Naidu will be answerable to the questions posed by Chinnamma.
