Lokesh in, Balayya out in Penamaluru?

Lokesh in, Balayya out in Penamaluru? - Sakshi Post

Vijayawada, Comments made by Telugu Desam Party MLC YVB Rajendra Prasad on Friday created quite a sensation among TDP party men. The comments also brought the split between present chief Chandrababu Naidu and the kith and kin of TDP founder N T Rama Rao, out in the open.

According to reports,  Rajendra said that if Naidu's son, Nara Lokesh, contested from Penamaluru, TDP leaders would make sure that he wins with a huge majority. Presently, Naidu has not appointed anybody in charge of Penamaluru constituency.

However, interestingly the buzz in political circles is that, Nandamuri Balakrishna, son of NTR, is also keen to contest from this constituency to capitalise on caste votes. 

As per reports, Balakrishna is visiting the constituency frequently, and is actively involving himself in the local party affairs.  Many local TDP leaders thought 'Balayya's participation will give a new lease of life to the party. But would Naidu allow this?

Reports also suggest that Naidu has forbidden his party members from meeting or speaking to NTR's second son as, Hari Krishna as well, who has a massive fan following in the district. Following this order, Junior NTR stopped visiting the district.  
Was Nara's endorsement, means of degrading the Nandamuri family in NTR's own district?
