Hyderabad: Political leaders as well as film personalities are closely watching hero Jr. NTR who has been maintaining stoic silence on the bifurcation issue, in sharp contrast to his father Hari Krishna who has been strongly opposing it.
As Jr. NTR was born and brought up in Hyderabad, there is a debate on which side he would take. People are discussing if he would oppose bifurcation as he often tells he would follow his grand father N T Rama Rao founder of TDP, who wanted the Telugu race to be united. However, there are occasions when Jr. NTR said he felt like coming to his native place when he visited Vijayawada.
Nandamuri family members have affinity for Krishna district. Even Bala Krishna is preparing to contest only from the district.
Though Jr. NTR distanced himself from TDP, he still has political plans, say his close associates. If and when he chooses political career, he also may contest from Krishna district itself. Now he doesn’t want to get entangled in the political controversy as he is busy with films and any careless talk would damage his career.
