Jagan will come to power : Balayya

Jagan will come to power : Balayya - Sakshi Post

Nandamuri Balakrishna on Monday had his Freudian slip moment, that left his party, TDP, extremely embarrassed. Instead of saying, Chandrababu will come to power he said, "Jagan will come to power."

Addressing the public during his rally in Srikakulam, the actor-turned-politician said that he hoped the chief of YSR Congress Party came to power instead of Chandrababu. After making his gaffe, he bit his tongue, leading to a ripple of amusement among both cadre and the public. (Nara Lokesh caught in a faux pas)

However, Monday, it would seem, was not a good day for the actor. In a clear indication that his charisma is not working, Balayya's election campaign received a very poor turnout in Srikakulam.

The low turnout seems to have disappointed both Balakrishna and the TDP cadre. Prior to his arrival, cadre went on a vehicle announcing his coming, yet the rally saw minimal turnout.   

Balakrishna flew to Visakhapatnam in the morning and reached Srikakulam by road. He later started his road show and public meeting at Saravakota mandal center at 11.20 am. Only media persons and TDP leaders were seen at the gathering.

He was reportedly angry with the TDP leaders for failing to gather crowd.
Adding to his miseries, the actor was seen stuttering during his speech, and also kept forgetting important names. Unable to remember the names of the Dharmana brothers during his speech, he kept referring to the leaders as " Vare brothers" (those brothers).  TDP leaders accompanying Balakrishna, had to intervene and tell him the names. 

Balakrishna takes pot shots at Jr NTR

The internal rift between Balakrishna and Jr NTR seems to be widening as elections commence.  

Speaking to reporters at Srikakulam, he said that all the family members of Nandamuri family should take it as a duty to try for the victory of TDP in the coming elections.

Taking indirect pot shots at Jr NTR, he said that Nandamuri family members will not be invited with flowers and fruits.  Whoever is with the party, can join in without waiting for an invitation.

When asked whether he will campaign for his sister Purandeswari, he made it clear that there was no space for that in his schedule.
