While Telugu Desam chief N Chandrababu Naidu is touring Krishna district as part of his Vastunna Meekosam Yatra to garner support of people and also set things right in the party, his decisions seems to have created confusion in the party rank and file in Vijayawada Lok Sabha constituency in general and in the city in particular as he is encouraging Kesineni Srinivas aka Nani, an aspirant for the parliamentary seat in the ensuing elections.

 Naidu has dropped enough hints that the party may field Nani for the Vijayawada LS seat in the next general elections.

 It is learnt that he has asked Nani to take care of his padayatra expenditure in the constituency and be ready to donate adequate party fund.

Nani, owner of Kesineni Travels, a well-known travel agency in the state, who was silent till the beginning of Naidu’s yatra in Krishna district, has come to limelight suddenly with the ‘assurance’ given by the TDP chief.

It may be mentioned here that Nani got a re-entry into the TDP in 2009 after levelling serious allegations against the erstwhile Praja Rajyam Party.

At the time of his controversial exit from the PRP, Nani alleged that Praja Rajyam president K Chiranjeevi formed the party only with an intention of making thousands of crores of rupees in the name of donations from ticket aspirants.

Nani joined the PRP to contest from Vijayawada Lok Sabha or any Assembly constituency in the last elections.

However, he could not make it and came out of the PRP.
