Many political analysts and even leaders from congress party expressed surprise when Damodar Rajanarasimha was made Dy CM post. Many felt he will be the rubber stamp with no power or authority what so ever available. However much to the surprise of all he using his telangana background quickly started showing his power stamping his authority on day to day functioning of the govt. He even started functioning not hand in hand but parallel to CM Kiran signifying his rivalry to all. He never showed his ambitions of becoming CM but many feel he is working to achieve his goal and is chanelising all his energies to fulfill his ambition soon.
He is developing close relationships and contacts with Congress High Command at center and made many visits to Delhi marketing his leadership qualities and trying to get proactive image in the eyes of High command which is not at all satisfied with the performance of CM Kiran. Unilke PCC Chief Botsa Satyanarayana and MegaStar Chiranjeevi who expressed his desire of becoming CM in media interactions, Damodar is playing his cleverly and close to his chest.
Many feel with his calm and cool nature he is fast emerging as the dark horse for the CM post in volatile and fluid political situation in Andhra Pradesh state. So one need not be surprised on any development in favor of Damodar.
