Political entry

Ever since the Telugu Desam Party formation, Balakrishna always campaigned for it in every election but never entered the electoral battle. Nandamuri Balakrishna went on a vacation to his father-in law Late Devarapalli Suryam’s house. During the vacation, he went on a political campaign for TDP all over East Godavari district and made a victory for TDP. After coming to know about this NTR said that East Godavari victory is completely Balayya’s victory.  He contested in the 2014 Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly elections on behalf of TDP and won the Hindupur Assembly Constituency seat with a reasonable majority. Hindupur, in Anantapur district, has been a TDP stronghold since 1983. It was once represented by NTR himself and later for a term by his elder son Nandamuri Harikrishna and Balakrishna will be the third from the family to represent State Assembly.
