Will Hindupur prove lucky for YSRCP at least in 2024?

1

Hindupur assembly seat in Anantapuram has always been the YSRCP’s Achilles’ Heel. The party tried every trick of the trade, but could not win. In fact, this seat was represented initially by NTR and later by Nandamuri Balakrishna. But, since at least 2004, one of the main reasons for the TDP victory is the infighting in the Congress first and the YSRCP later.

In 2004, Congress candidate Navin Nischal gave a tough fight. In 2009, the Congress did not give him the ticket. So, he became a rebel and fought as an independent. Navin Nishcal stood second and the Congress third. In the later developments, Navin joined the YSRCP and contested in 2014. He was unlucky again as he was pitted against Balakrishna. In the 2019 elections, the YSRCP gave the ticket to Iqbal. Though Navin did not oppose it openly, he ensured that the YSRCP did not win. So, NBK had won again.

The YSRCP in Hindupur is divided into three factions – former MLA Abdul Ghani faction, Navin faction and Iqbal faction. After the 2019 elections, YS Jagan made Iqbal, who was defeated in 2019, as an MLC. Navin began sulking and kept aloof from party activities. It is clear that the YSRCP can win from Hindupur only when the Navin and Iqbal factions come together. Otherwise, the anti-TDP votes get divided and NBK will scrape through.

Now with the 2024 elections in mind, Jagan has given a corporation chairperson’s post to Navin Nischal. Now that Iqbal is an MLC, it is likely that only Navin will be in the fray. Will all the three factions come together and fight the election unitedly? Will both Ghani and Iqbal work for Navin, who betrayed them in 2014? The politics are heating up in Hindupur already as there is a likelihood of Lokesh Babu becoming TDP candidate in the event of NBK opting out.

Balakrishna being trolled after comments on AR Rahman and Bharat Ratna

Netizens had a field day on Wednesday, after an interview of Telugu star and MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna went viral. In the interview, the actor says he doesn’t know who Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman is, and adds that Bharat Ratna, India’s highest civilian award, is equal to the “toenail” of his father, late actor-politician NT Rama Rao.

“I don’t know who AR Rahman is. He won an Oscar and I don’t even know who he is. He gives a hit once in a decade,” said Balakrishnan, in an interview to the channel TV9.

Rahman, incidentally, had composed the background score of Balakrishna’s 1993 film, “Nippu Ravva”.

Speaking about Bharat Ratna, the actor, also known as Ballaya to fans, said: “I feel that Bharat Ratna is equal to my father’s toenail. No award can compensate for the contribution of my family to Tollywood. So, only the awards should feel bad. Not my family or my father.”

Soon, a Twitter war erupted, with Rahman fans mercilessly posting memes, and hashtag #whoisbalakrishna started trending.

A fan tweeted: “How can a senior actor like #Balakrishna talk about Indian legend #ARRahman? Will people accept if a similar thing is being spoken by a Tamil actor on #Rajamouli?”

While another one tweeted: “Who is balakrisha the funny actor #whoisbalakrishna.”

“Born to spoil is DAD good name.. #whoisbalakrishna this head weight attitude is the biggest reason for people to hate him.. funniest part is he is MLA”

Soon, Balakrishna’s fans were out defending him, saying he was a hero of the masses and a charitable personality.

NBK Comments on MAA issue are self contradictory, say netizens

0

Movie artistes Association elections have become even more interesting with sudden entry of star hero Nandamuri Bala Krishna. His comments, as always, drew wide attention from media as well as from film circles. In social media also his comments were widely discussed yesterday. However, netizens say his comments are self contradictory. Details as follows.

Bala Krishna was giving interview to a channel yesterday. As Movie artists Association elections is the hot topic nowadays, reporter asked Bala Krishna to respond on the same in that interview . Bala Krishna started his response with a piece of advice to his fellow artists. He said, movie industry itself is a glamour industry and so we should not expose our internal differences to the media. But in the next minute, he started targeting other artists by questioning them about why can’t they get 1 acre land from Telangana government despite playing doodle doodle to the government. Even though media missed this self contradiction, netizens did not. They Commented on social media that Bala Krishna is asking others not to discuss the differences in front of media but he himself is not following the same.

Another point that drew the ire of netizens is that, he is blaming other artists for not getting land from government while he did not do anything for movie artistes Association building or land when his party was in power. There is another point that netizens are seriously confused about i e. why government has to give land to Movie artistes Association building. Government land is property of people. Movie heroes are earning crores of rupees from remuneration and if all of them contribute a little bit, it is not a big deal for them to buy 1 acre land but Bala Krishna suggesting others to get that labs from government. While Balakrishna also offered to help in constructing the building why can’t he offer help in buying 1 acre of land for the Movie artistes Association building, netizens questioned.

Even though Balakrishna did not reveal whom will he support elections, It is almost clear now that he will be supporting Manchu Vishnu. With this latest developments, it has also become clear that there will be elections this time and the possiblity of electing the panel unanimously is almost ruled out. We need to wait and see how more dramatic this MAA election turn out to be

Balakrishna emotional speech in TDP Mahanadu

0

TDP MLA and hero Nandamuri Balakrishna has made a stirring speech in the party ‘Digital Mahanadu’ on the second and final day today. He began offering rich tributes to NTR on the occasion of his 98th birth anniversary. NTR has remained a source of huge inspiration for him all through.

Balakrishna asserted that if NTR was alive today, he would be greatly pained at the present deplorable situation in the State. AP was going backwards in all sectors. There were no job opportunities for the young generation. But there was plenty of liquor being made available to spoil them. NTR had always dreamt about better living conditions for the people of AP. He strove hard for the self-respect of the AP people. Whereas, the State’s present situation was very pitiable.

Balakrishna made an indirect attack on the Jagan Reddy regime. At the same time, he asserted that the residual Andhra Pradesh was in great trouble after the unjust bifurcation. At such a time, Chandrababu Naidu gave a proper direction and put the State back on the track. All that good work was now being reversed.

The TDP MLA called upon the youth to take an active part in politics and create awareness to solve the problems of the State.
