Union minister and NTR’s daughter Purandareswari campaigned for Congress in Chikkaballapur, Gudi Banda and Gowri Bidanur areas of Karnataka where a large number of Telugu settlers live. She went about extensively using her father NTR’s picture. People turned out in large numbers to have a look at NTR’s daughter.
When Purandareswari contested as Congress candidate for Lok Sabha from Visakhapatnam, she used her father’s picture to woo the voters. No TDP leader could dispute it, as she is the daughter of the late leader.
