Hyderabad: Nara Lokesh, the son of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N Chandrababu Naidu, made a grand entry into politics with the beginning of ‘Mahanadu’, a two day gathering at Gandipet on Monday.
Lokesh, who shared the dias with senior party leaders, has been given a key post and will be now heading the party’s Youth Wing.
For months, a tussle has been going on between Lokesh and NTR Junior, son of senior party leader N Balakrishna, for taking up key roles in the party. The clash even threatened to cause a rift in the TDP.
However, NTR Junior’s decision to focus on his acting career paved the way for a political career for Lokesh who saw NTR junior as a stiff competition.
Lokesh first came to spotlight when he organized Chandrababu`s `padayatra` last year.
Planning to increase his visibility in the party’s activities, Lokesh is now being trained by the senior leaders to mobilize the workers as the grassroot level.
