Fact Sheet: Chandrababu Pulling Lokesh Into TDP

Former Chief Minister and Telugu Desam president N Chandrababu Naidu is silently preparing his only son N Lokesh for "arangetram" in politics. All this has been going on behind the four walls of Chandrababu Naidu's residence. Lokesh has also been visiting NTR Bhavan but secretly.

When Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy is grooming his son YS Jaganmohan Reddy, will his bete noire Chandrababu Naidu lag behind in selecting his political heir in Andhra Pradesh? The race has begun. Rajasekhar Reddy is doing it openly, because Jaganmohan Reddy has already settled in life and is planning to launch his own newspaper. But this is not the case with Lokesh. He is yet to "complete" his studies. Though he is the rich son of a rich father, Lokesh has not made a mark in life, except marrying the daughter of his uncle, film actor N Balakrishna.

Jaganmohan Reddy definitely has the edge over Lokesh. And this is the reason why Chandrababu Naidu does not want to announce in the open that Lokesh will join politics. Nevertheless, Lokesh is being trained by Chandrababu Naidu on how to take over the reins of the Telugu Desam and rule over the State.

Moreover, Jagan is more mature than Lokesh. Though Lokesh wants to be independent, Chandrababu Naidu still considers him as a "child" who needs parental support to come up in life.

This is the tale of two fathers and two sons, who want to make it big in the political horizon of the State.

Fact Sheet: When Uma sought the support of YSR

Former minister and Telugu Desam legislator A Uma Madhava Reddy had been in a major problem for quite long time. But she chose to approach Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy for help and not her own political boss and former chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

According to inside sources, Uma had some financial problem with an influential person. She made several efforts to get back the money and settle the issue. After all the efforts failed to deliver the goods, she had a brain wave; to approach Rajasekhar Reddy for help.

In just two days Rajasekhar Reddy is said to have settled Uma's problem. And pray tell why did she approach the chief minister and not the Telugu Desam supremo. The answer is quite obvious. Chandrababu Naidu is an elusive politician who does not extend a helping hand quite often. So she thought it would be an exercise in futility to seek the help of Chandrababu Naidu. Rajasekhar Reddy, on the other hand, is known for his helping nature. And he thoughtful action paid off.
