Sources say, Harikrishna failed to respond to the calls of both Balakrishna and Chandrababu Naidu. Naidu told his party leaders today that he had brought Harikrishna on board of TDP under pressure from the family .Harikrishna was also made a member of the TDP Politburo and Rajya Sabha to appease the Nandamuri family.
Harikrishha raised the Seemandhra flag in Rajya Sabha . In his speech, he stated that late NTR was favourable to Smaikyandhra. Harikrishna statements sent message to TDP authorites that the party has forgotten Late NTR. As Harikrishna termed Samaikyandhra movement as ‘Atma Gosha of NTR’ , TDP authorities felt that a different overtone( different from the party) is being heard in Rajyasabha.
