Kaun Banega TTD Board Chairman?
Hyderabad: As the TTD board term is going to expire; a lot of names are doing rounds as to who would be selected for the position. One of the most prominent names is that of the Telugu Desam Party MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao.
It has been Rao’s dream to become TTD board chairman. He tried his best when he was in Congress and has been doing the same in the Telugu Desam.
However, speculations are that he is miffed with Chandrababu Naidu. When Rayapati expressed his desire to Naidu after his return from America, there was no enthusiastic response from Naidu, and reportedly he was disappointed.
Naidu has clarified that MLAs and MPs’ would not be given any nominated posts, and that includes Rayapati, who seem to have missed the bus again. Many leaders, have tried to console Rayapati by saying that Naidu might not have responded positively due to some social reasons. They also suggested him not to pressurize Naidu for it.
On the other hand, rumours are rife that retired IAS officer Lakshmi Narayana or Telecom expert Tripuraneni Hanuman Chowdary might get the plum post. Chief Executive Officer of AP State Skill Development Corporation, Lakshmi Narayana happens to be the batch mate of Naidu in SV University.
However, it is also a possibility that the post may go to Tripuraneni Hanuman Chowdary. Incidentally, Hanuman Chowdary happens to be chairman of Prajna Bharati, an association of nationalist intellectuals.
The rumours are that to please the BJP, which appears to be irked with Naidu at the moment, the plum post might be given to Chowdhary, who received Padmasri this year.
