Ganta Srinivasa Rao is in trouble. He is one minister in Chandrababu Naidu cabinet, whose moves are always suspected and who is always under scanner. His past political moves and his recent friendships are coming back to haunt him.

Though a TDP man, Ganta defected to Praja Rajyam Party because of his closeness to Chiranjeevi. When Chiru merged PRP into the Congress, he followed suit and became a minister in the Congress government. Even as a minister, he tried to help Chiru and the heroes from his family during the latters' film releases. Now, his proximity to Pawan is too well known. There are reports that he had planned Jana Sena chief's tour in Visakhapatnam and provided material and logistic support.

Ever since, there is a strong buzz that he might join the party. So, even Chandrababu has started ignoring him. So, a worried Ganta is now doing every thing he can to prove his loyalty to Chandrababu. He has recently shot off 25 questions to Pawan Kalyan. Later, he made personal attacks on Pawan and said he was behaving like a child. He pooh-poohed Pawan's talk of sacrificing everything for the people.  Now, there is a problem. His party men in the the constituency and the people from his caste are upset at his attack on Pawan. But, if he doesn't attack, Chandrababu Naidu will be miffed. A classic case of being caught in a cleft stick. Isn't it?
