Hyderabad: Actor Balakrishna fan associations were furiuos on the TDP chief Chandrababu over the role given to Balakrishna in the Telugu desam party.
“Cine star Balakrishna is not getting enough importance in Telugu Desam Party,” commented Balakrishna fans’ association leader Ramesh.
Speaking to reporters in Visakhapatnam, Ramesh demanded the party to give enough importance to the heirs of Nandamuri family. “If it is not done, all of us will work against the party from now,” said the leader.
Film actor Nandamuri Balakrishna’s supporters were baffled recently by the way his name has suddenly cropped up in the list of Telugu Desam probables for the two Rajya Sabha seats that the party could win going by its strength in the Assembly.
They are surprised because Mr. Balakrishna never showed any interest for Rajya Sabha membership and always preferred to become MLA.
He had made his choice public several times during the last few months and the expectation was that he could contest from an Assembly constituency either in Krishna district or Anantapur district.
The fan associations wanted their actor to contest in the Hindupur constituency.
