A few days ago, actor Sonu Sood helped a farmer from madanapalli, by giving him a tractor. Nageswara Rao, the farmer, was also offered help by TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu, who said that he would bear the educational expenses of Nageswara Rao’s daughters.
However, Nageswara Rao has now rejetected the help of Chandrababu Naidu’s, due to unspecified reasons.According to the letter written by Chandrababu, he stated that he would make sure that both of Nageswara Rao’s daughters would be given free residential seats in NTR Women’s college, or that Babu would pay for the entire education of the two girls.
While the exact reasons for Nageswara Rao’s rejection are not known, there are several speculations going on. First off, after Nageswara Rao accepted Sonu Sood’s help – someone who has nothing to do with politics – people started talking about the farmer. If he now accepts Babu’s help, then Rao would be termed as a TDP supporter, which Rao doesn’t reportedly want. Sonu Sood helped the farmer when a video of the farmer and his family ploughing the field by themselves became viral on social media.
Several TV channels have started claiming the credit to themselves, saying that Sonu Sood helped the family after watching the video on their channel. People on social media started trolling the government and other politicians, questioning their lack of action with respect to the farmer.
Nageswara Rao himself is not an uneducated man, and works in a Dalit Sangh. He has his own political affiliations, and given the current political scenario in Andhra Pradesh, he must have not wanted to be involved in it.
