According to reports from Hyderabad, there are some comparisons between the late Chief Minister and TDP founder president Nandamuri Taraka Rama Rao, commonly known as NTR, and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. While everyone knows that Mr Rao is the biggest fan of NTR; the CM has said this himself many times and even named his son Taraka Rama Rao.

Earlier NTR had a farmhouse at Gandipet and constructed his home Shanthi Kutiram there. Sources say that he would go there very often and took many major political and administrative resolutions at the Gandipet Shanthi Kutiram. Soon Mr Rao also constructed a farmhouse, at Erravalli village in his home constituency of Gajwel and like NTR, he also loves to spend time there and takes important resolutions from there, such as the decision to suspend the state Assembly early.

Furthermore, as the Youth Congress president of Medak district, Mr Rao was a strong supporter of Congress stalwart A. Madan Mohan. Additionally, after NTR launched the Telugu Desam in 1982, in undivided Andhra Pradesh, Mr Rao joined the party and was elected MLA several times and reportedly he was also a minister in the NTR Cabinet. Besides this the two men have in common is a strong belief in astrology and Vastu. Lastly, NTR’s lucky number was 9 and Mr Rao’s lucky number is 6; the figures appear similar when viewed from different angles.
