As per a section of media, Nandamuri Balakrishna issued ultimatum to none other than Chandrababu Naidu over the seats allocation. He is very particular about Visakha MP Ticket for his Son-in-Law Sri Bharat and Kanigiri MLA Ticket for Kadiri Babu Rao.
Sri Bharat aspired to be Visakha MP Candidate. Whereas, Chandrababu Naidu decided to field Nara Lokesh in Bheemili or Visakha North and Sri Bharat in Rajahmundry Lok Sabha constituency. Why because, He doesn't want both the Son-in-Laws of Balayya to contest from the same district.
After Balayya's Ultimatum, TDP Leadership decided to offer Visakha MP Ticket for Sri Bharat and shift Lokesh to Mangalagiri. Demand from Balakrishna forced Naidu to offer Kanigiri Ticket for Kadiri Babu Rao once again.
On the other hand, Balayya is going to contest again from Hindupur Assembly Constituency. In 2014 Polls, Balakrishna received 81,543 votes as against 65,347 votes bagged by YCP Candidate Naveen Nischal. Margin of victory is 16,000 votes. Can Nata Simha retain the seat inspite of so many controversies in the past 5 years?
