Due to insufficient employment creation in industry and services sectors, coaches since the start, There will be a bit more focus on me and it will allow me to build a big image for myself, is preparing the ground for the next poll victory by anointing Lokesh with a ministerial position.The point not to be missed in the exercise is Chandrababu’s cautious move to bring his son into active politics by facilitating an easy entry through the legislative council without putting him through the rigour of fighting an Assembly election Now the TDP strongman has paved the political path for Lokesh but can he hone his skills in time to face the electorate in two years’ time That’s the million dollar question His supporters claim Lokesh is actively involved in TDP’s welfare programmes on health education skill development disaster management etc through the NTR Memorial Trust and his interaction with the beneficiaries is considered to be positive Since it is mostly behind-the-scenes work some party stalwarts think Lokesh should be brought into limelight by making him a minister so that he can be projected as a mass leader in the coming days File image of Nara Lokesh and Chandrababu Naidu PTI In this respect a comparison is inevitable with K Taraka Rama Rao (KTR) son of Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) who holds half a dozen key portfolios in the state government Incidentally KCR named his son after the legendary film actor-turned politician Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao (NTR) who was the founder of the Telugu Desam Party Since the formation of Telangana state in 2014 KTR has been the right hand man of his chief minister father and the moving spirit behind the state’s welfare programmes and industrial development particularly in the IT sector US-educated like Lokesh an articulate KTR is considered an asset to the Telangana chief minister in taking the state on the stated objectives of the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi Even without being anointed as successor KTR is seen as the unquestioned TRS leader to become chief minister whenever the occasion arises Few have such confidence in Lokesh One reason could be that so far he has been working in the shadows and in order to prove his mettle he has to emerge His elevation to minister should give Lokesh an opportunity to affirm his political goals and ambitions without being supercilious an accusation he faced in September last year when a photograph of Lokesh pointing a finger at Andhra Pradesh home minister Nimmakayala China Rajappa who was seen standing ashen-faced at a meeting went viral That the telltale picture raised many uncomfortable questions about Lokesh and his role in party affairs was a different matter But the issue remains whether he is capable of leading the caste-based faction-ridden TDP along with his father Chandrababu for another five-year term in 2019 Interestingly the political power of father-son duos are nowhere more pronounced than in the two Telugu states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Besides Lokesh and KTR another who became a power centre before the other two entered the political stage is Jaganmohan Reddy son of former chief minister of united Andhra Pradesh YS Rajasekhar Reddy who died in a helicopter crash in 2009 Notwithstanding several cases pending against Jagan — acquisition of wealth in an inappropriate manner and allegations of corruption — he has fought elections in both states and is the Opposition leader in the Andhra Pradesh Assembly More importantly he remains a formidable challenger to the TDP When Lokesh is pitted against the other two he comes a poor third in political acumen Nevertheless sons and daughters following in the footsteps of fathers and mothers is not an unusual phenomenon in the world of politics across the globe Those who have made the cut are fewer than those who have fallen wayside While it is rare sons inheriting political power from fathers or mothers in western democracies our political families (dynasties) have perfected the system over the years In fact our democracy has been turned into dynastic-centric If it is Akhilesh and Mulayam Singh Yadav of the Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh in Bihar it is Lalu Prasad Yadav’s family that calls the shots whether in power or not At the national level the credit of being the mother of all political dynasties goes to Congress Despite innumerable setbacks the Grand Old Party still wants the Nehru-Gandhi family scion Rahul to lead the nation When do our leaders realise that giving more weight to political lineage than the proven ability is self-defeating and ultimately harms interests of the party and the nation Gandhinagar | Updated: February 5 2014 6:10 pm BJP supporters with the ‘holy mud’ collected from religious places from each of Vadodara’s 25 wards Related News The loh daan (iron collection) drive for the proposed Statue of Unity is set to get a fresh push with the

while cities will contribute mud This drive will be undertaken across all major cities of the country” Slamming the view of the critics that this as an exercise to transform Modi’s image city BJP president Bharat Dangar said “Modi is a secular leader He does not need to prove that Even after the SIT has given him a clean chit if there are people who think he is communal then there is something wrong with their mind” Meanwhile heads of various places of worship in the city were more than willing to help The head of one of the prominent religious places in the city from where the BJP leaders collected the mud said “When they approached us for the mud we willingly gave it awayWe are all for peace and unity no matter what form it is in The concept of collecting something from each and every part of the country and creating one single structure is definitely something significant whatever be the reason behind it” For all the latest Ahmedabad News download Indian Express App More Related
