Only Naidu is the fittest AP Chief Minister: Balakrishna
HYDERABAD: In the wake of news reports that the TDP MLA from Hindupur and prominent Tollywood hero Nandamuri Balakrishna would step into the shoes of Nara Chandrababu Naidu if he was served with a notice by the ACB in connection with a�?Note-for-Votea�? case, Balakrishna broke his silence here on Monday and said the question of anybody becoming chief minister does not arise as the TDP chief was functioning efficiently in that position due to his vast administrative and political experience.
Speaking to the media after a function at Basavatarakam Cancer Hospital & Research Institute here, Balakrishna, who is also brother-in-law of Chandrababu Naidu, said the TDP president was alone capable of steering the residual state towards monumental development and strive for welfare of the people. Naidu was working very efficiently as chief minister and party president, he added.
It may be mentioned here that when the a�?Cash-for-Votea�? case surfaced, there were reports in a section of the media that Naidu would step down owing to the grave charge against him and either Balakrishna or Ashok Gajapati Raju or Lokesh Naidu would take over the AP reigns.
Brushing aside the speculation, Balakrishna asserted that Naidu alone would be the CM forever, and he would always work under his leadership. He also announced that he would soon establish a cancer hospital in Andhra Pradesh soon. (NSS)
