Couple of days, Andhra Pradesh Agriculture Minister Pathipati Pulla Rao made a comment that Chandra Babu Naidu’s son, Nara Lokesh has all the abilities to lead the state and may also be the CM candidate from the party in 2019. Pulla Rao may have said this to please the Supremo but the strategy severely backfired. Chandra Babu reportedly is very upset on these comments and took a big class to Pulla Rao.
The Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister even though harbours the idea of bringing his son in to politics like every father feels that Lokesh still needs some time to get groomed and do not want undue publicity for Lokesh right now. Chandra Babu was serious on Pulla Rao who diverted the media attention from the government’s 100 days success to Lokesh affairs.
The CM is already not happy with some of the ministers speaking as they like in the media on vital issues like Runa Mafi and State Capital. He reportedly is going to appoint few Media Relation Officers to the Ministers who will speak to the media on the behalf of them. These officers are said to be strong supporters of TDP and have a good knowledge about how to be ‘diplomatic’ while talking to Press. Ministers will definitely dont like this but Chandra Babu insists to avoid unnecessary problems and controversies.
