CHITTOOR: TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu has at last decided to install a statue of his fatherinlaw and former chief minister NT Ramarao at his native village, Nara Vari Palle.
Naidu has faced criticism from his political opponents that he has no respect for the party's founder and that is why NTR statue has not been installed in Naidu's native village.
Come this Sankranti, Naidu will not only unveil an NTR statue in his village in the Chandragiri Assembly constituency but will also have a gettogether with members of NTR's family. He will spend two days _ Jan 13 and 14 _ at Nara Vari Palle along with his family. The families of Balakrishna and Harikrishna will also visit Nara Vari Palle.
During his visit Naidu may ask his nephew Girish, son of his brother Nara Ramamurthy Naidu, to look after the party affairs in the Chandragiri constituency. Girish, an engineering graduate, is looking after his father's industries. Chandragiri is being represented in the Assembly by mines and geology minister Galla Aruna Kumari.
Initially, Naidu had planned to make his son Lokesh incharge of the constituency but dropped the idea in the face of resentment from Harikrishna and his actorson NTR Jr. Naidu seems to have made up his mind to entrust the task to Girish whi is now actively involved in making arrangements for Naidu's visit.
