Good leader but bad politician
Kesineni Nani was re-elected MP for Vijayawada in the 2019 elections. Even in the face of severe anti-incumbency, Nani managed to win. He has a good grip on six of the seven constituencies in his Lok Sabha segment.
Nani left an indelible mark on Vijayawada. He executed many development works using his contacts with central ministers and industrialists like Ratan Tata.
All these qualities make Nani a good leader but he struggles to be a good politician.
Nani has problems with many party leaders in Krishna district. This is one of the main reasons why TDP lost the elections of Vijaywada Corporation.
He openly challenges the party and its leadership giving the impression that he might quit the party.
But immediately after such a case, we see him going to Chandrababu for meetings.
Just a few days ago we saw Chandrababu Naidu attending the wedding reception of Kesineni’s daughter.
Today, as he receives Naidu in Delhi with other TDP MPs, Nani is seen pushing the bouquet of flowers when Galla Jayadev offered to give it to the former CM.
The video went viral and offered fodder for Congressional Sakshi and YSR’s social media teams.
It is certain that Nani has problems with the party. It is surprising that the leaders do not attempt to solve them.
Someone like Nani is also an asset to the party, Naidu shouldn’t leave the matter until it gets too much worse.
At the same time, Nani should also realize that this is not how leaders of an opposition party should behave.
It takes two hands to clap. Nani and Naidu should sit down and talk, otherwise they send wrong signals to the audience.
