Film hero and Telugu Desam MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna will be the star campaigner of the T-TDP in the State Assembly elections. The TD State unit plans to field candidates in 87 out of the 119 constituencies. Party president Kasani Gnaneshwar Mudiraj met State leaders at NTR Trust Bhavan to discuss the poll strategy. They have identified potential candidates in over 80 segments. Survey reports suggest that the party will play a significant role in many GHMC segments.
Gnaneshwar will contest from Quthbullapur, where he had previously lost. The party aims to unite a majority of Andhra voters in this segment. Another senior leader, Arvind Kumar Goud, plans to contest from Khairatabad, while Ilayya Yadav will fight from Munugodu. N Chandrababu Naidu’s relative, N Suhasini, plans to fight from Kukatpally again, despite losing in the previous elections.
TDP will field candidates in all 10 segments in the old Khammam district, where it has strong voter support. In 2018, the party had won two seats in the district. Balakrishna will actively participate in the campaign by attending public meetings in GHMC limits and Khammam district. He will also join road shows and rallies in some segments.
