Heir of AP Chief Minister and TDP supreme Nara Chandrababu Naidu, Nara Lokesh has been the man running the show from behind the screen for so long for Telugu Desam Party. Already, there is talk that for the 2019 assembly elections, Lokesh will be the chief minister candidate but that is almost four years away.
Meanwhile, talk is that Babu has decided to give Lokesh a credible post in the party. Although Lokesh runs the party, he hasn’t had a formal post until now. Babu is preparing to announce Lokesh as the chief secretary of the party. It will now give Lokesh more power to handle the party in his style. With this new post, Lokesh will be looking after the party activities in the two Telugu speaking states.
