Former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu was arrested in the Skill Development case and was awarded a Judicial Remand for 14 days.
He is currently housed in Rajahmundry Central Jail. This is the first time TDP will be without Chandrababu Naidu’s leadership in 28 years.
Now the burden of running the party is on Nara Lokesh. And then, there is Yuvagalam Padayatra which is yet to cover East Godavari district and Uttarandhra region. And on top of it, there are Chandrababu’s legal issues, and impending legal issues of many other leaders that are likely to come.
Moreover, there is an urgent need to instill confidence in the cadre and leaders with elections fast approaching.
All these are too many for Lokesh to handle. There are demands that TDP should use the services of Bhuvaneshwari and Brahmani.
They say Brahmani should continue the Padayatra while Bhuvaneshwari should be the face of the Party office so that Lokesh can take care of the remaining things.
Balakrishna may also be used to bring confidence to the cadre and the leaders.
Previously, Vijaya Lakshmi, Sharmila, and Bharathi used to take care of all these things when Jagan went to jail.
The problem is that both Bhuvaneshwari and Brahmani are totally politically inexperienced. They can not deliver political speeches effectively but can bring the human touch to the party.
They can be very appealing faces for the cadre as well as the General Public since there is overwhelming sympathy in favor of Chandrababu.
