All Are Waiting For NTR’s Wife Reaction

The rechristening of the NTR University of Health Sciences after YSR drew flak from various quarters, including some from within the YCP. The TDP leaders, including the party boss, intelligentsia and netizens also took exception to the move by the YCP government.

Actor Jr NTR played it safe saying that the change in the name would not belittle NTR or his stature. Now, all eyes are on late NTR’s wife and YCP leader Lakshmi Parvathi, who had remained silent on the issue so far. What would be her reaction on the renaming? She seems to be caught up between the devil and the deep sea. In fact, she should have quit from the YCP membership soon after the decision was announced, if she is a loyalist of late NTR, suggested a senior TDP leader.

Soon after the YCP was voted to power, the party boss and Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy gave her a plum post by appointing her as the chairperson of the Telugu Academy. Why would she quit her post for a man dead many years ago, questioned a TDP sympathizer.

The late night Bill and tabling it on the last day of the monsoon session of the Assembly, when the Speaker suspended the 13 TDP MLAs and called for their physical eviction from the House reflected the anarchy of the YCP men, political analysts pointed out.
