Amidst growing criticism against Nara Lokesh’s public speeches and Telugu dialect, TDP’s top brass has stepped in to initiate damage-control. As part of the plan, Lokesh has been advised to hire a teacher who could groom him in the mass communication skills as well as the Telugu language.
None other than Peddi Rama Rao, well-known TV serial writer and research scholar, who had earlier groomed Jr NTR during his political campaign in 2009, has been zeroed in on to teach Lokesh. Peddi Rama Rao is very good at diction and is known to groom Jr NTR in teaching him the political jargon.
The scion of Chandrababu Naidu is presently serving as the IT & Panchayat Raj Minister. Since Lokesh is getting active in direct politics and electoral politics, Chandrababu Naidu and other party seniors want Lokesh to go for formal training ahead of 2019 elections.
Recently, Pawan Kalyan had hit out at Lokesh and the latter’s alleged links with Sekar Reddy. Even during then, Lokesh had stated that he ignores Pawan’s comments since they’re baseless. But the party wants Lokesh to strongly counter in such instances.
Even earlier, Peddi Rama Rao had groomed Lokesh during his foray into politics. But that wasn’t full-fledged training since Lokesh couldn’t accommodate his full-time then. Now, Lokesh too is keen on learning the nuances of public speaking. Peddi Rama Rao is also a popular speech-writer for CM Chandrababu.
