Nandamuri Family is always known to be arch-rivals of Congress because NTR floated Telugu Desam against the National Party in the 80s. The Legendary Personality used the Self Respect plank to end the domination of Congress Party since Independence. TDP-Congress always fought against each other whenever elections happened in the Telugu States. What's happening now is really something several hardcore fans of NTR mayn't be able to digest.
What if Harikrishna is alive Today? NTR's Son might have certainly differed with the decision taken by TDP Leadership due to the ethics & morals he practice. All those who admire Harikrishna recall his trademark dialogue - 'Congress Valla Mochethi Neelu...'.
Those who had close association with Harikrishna believe he would have certainly led the camp opposing TDP-Congress alliance if that tragic demise hadn't happened. Few other members in Nandamuri Family might be definitely upset with TDP Leadership ignoring the ideologies with which the party was floated.
