Presenting the bogey of Lakshmi Parvathi, both Ramoji and Chandrababu successfully engineered a coup against NTR and ousted him in the most humiliating manner. Having total control over the media Ramoji managed to bluff the public presenting Naidu as a new age politician and made the public believe his theory. The public too believed. In the final days of his life, NTR led a very pitiable life cursing Ramoji and Naidu for spoiling the minds of his sons and snatching the party from him by defaming him for marrying Laxmi Parvathi. If one observes the happenings now, we can see many of NTR detractors facing the same fate as he did.
NTR family might have succumbed to Naidu and Congress for political positions, but the fate has been hunting them with vengeance.
The arrival of YSR onto political scene as CM of Andhra Pradesh has altered the fortunes of both Naidu and Ramoji. Today, Naidu has been shamelessly knocking at every available party and begging Nandamuri family members to support him to win elections, as survey after survey paints a dismal picture for TDP. Still there is no hope of defeating Congress.
Madhava Reddy who kidnapped and caged Laxmi Parvathi in a remote location prior to her marriage with NTR faced untimely death.
Devender Goud, who sided with Naidu in the infamous August episode, is today on the edge of his political career with no hopes of his party winning a single seat.
Balayogi who sided with Babu and gained handsomely met with ill-timed death.
Many people who had actively participated in August coup are now sailing in troubled waters and facing political ignominy.
As a classic example, Ramoji is now leading similar life as NTR did in final days. NTR sons and daughters ,believing in Naidu’s sugar coated words, had revolted against their father and moved to the enemy camp. Now, Ramoji’s son Suman listed out his father’s acts of omission and commission in SAKSHI daily (owned by Ramoji’s enemy YSR)accusing his father as a money minded person. This is in addition to Undavalli tormenting Ramoji in the Margadarsi fraud. The man, who once almost commanded the national leaders, is standing naked in public in the final days of his life.
Isn’t this a classic case of life imitating art, as happens in many melodramas?
