Tourism Minister and Allagadda MLA Bhuma Akhila Priya, who pledged to quit politics if loses Nandyal by-election, is pulling out all the stops to score victory in the by-poll that is facilitated after his father and Nandyal sitting MLA Bhuma Nagi Reddy died of cardiac arrest.
Considering their family’s association with Pawan Kalyan during Praja Rajyam Party – Shoba Nagi Reddy and Bhuma Nagi Reddy played crucial role in PRP, Bhuma Akhila Priya is wanting to meet Pawan to seek his support for her family in the by-poll.
Bhuma family has maintained close ties with mega family – be it with Chiranjeevi or Pawan Kalyan. While Akhila Priya’s mom served as PRP MLA, Nagi Reddy had been senior leader of PRP. Naturally, Pawan has very strong affiliation towards Akhila Priya and her sister Mounika who lost both their parents in short time.
In fact, Pawan did mention about his association with Nagi Reddy and Shoba Nagi Reddy in his condolence message. And it it is learnt that Pawan also is very unhappy over YSR Congress Party’s verbal attack on Chandrababu and Bhuma sisters. Roja’s recent comments on Akhila Priya’s dress said to have not gone well with Pawan along with many others.
However, Pawan is weighing his options and is tight-lipped on the Nandyal by-election. Amidst this, Akhila Priya’s meeting with Pawan Kalyan is expected to give a much-needed boost to the TDP. Although TDP is ahead of YSRCP so far, still, TDP doesn’t want to take any chances.
Bhuma Nagi Reddy’s brother’s son Bhuma Brahmananda Reddy has been fielded as the TDP candidate in the by-poll while erstwhile TDP candidate in 2014 Shilpa Mohan Reddy is testing his luck on YSR Congress party ticket. The election is very significant for both TDP and YSRCP as it is considered as a referendum for TDP’s ruling.
Given that Pawan is all set to make his entry into direct politics from October, the actor is said to be mulling his options. Will Pawan support Bhuma family? Let’s wait and see.
