HYDERABAD: Actor and TD MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna on Saturday asked people to teach all those who had defected to the TRS a lesson, launching his long-awaited election campaign in Telangana from the Sanathnagar constituency.
While campaigning for Mr Kuna Venkatesh Goud, the TD candidate from Sanathnagar, he said nobody could erase the mark that TD president and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu had left on Hyderabad.
Balakrishna said that Mr Naidu had established the software empire in Hyderabad and created millions of jobs for the youth. He said TD founder N.T. Rama Rao had united Telugus and people of the two states have to live up to his aspirations.
Criticising the TRS and the BJP-led Central governments, the AP MLA alleged that there was a secret alliance between both parties. There are expectations that his nephews and actors Jr NTR and Kalyan Ram will campaign for their sister Nandamuri Suhasini in Kukatpally. Another hope of cine buffs is that Balakrishna will canvass with Congress star campaigner Vijayashanti; the two had starrred in several hit films.
