There is reportedly a calculated strategy by TDP Chief Chandra Babu’s sudden decision of fielding Nandamuri harikrishna’s daughter Suhasini from the Kukatpally constituency.
According to political analysts, it is a strategic move by the AP Chief Minister. By giving Kukatpally ticket to Suhasini, he sent out a message that Nandamuri family is united as ever and plays a strong role in the party. It also implied that he was paying homage to Harikrishna and taking care of his family.
Bringing Suhasini into the picture not only removed the discontent in the party members on the TDP-Congress alliance to some extend, but it also ensured extensive support in campaign from both Junior NTR and Kalyan Ram.
