Dharmana Prasad Rao, a very well known name in not just Srikakulam district, but all over Andhra Pradesh. He has been a strong pillar of support for his people in all of his political years, and has made sure that they are always happy. People believed in him to such an extent that they knew their problem would be solved if they went to Dharmana.
Dharmana’s popularity and power was high and prominent that he could get things done with just the look in his eyes. However, this man of the masses has gone silent for quite some time now. Despite being the most active and driving things forward to make sure the YSRCP wins the general elections last year, Dharmana went silent post the elections.
This could be because of many reasons, including the fact that Dharmana neither got a Cabinet post, nor a Ministry. Dharmana’s brother, Dharmana Krishna Das had been made a Minister earlier, and after the resignation of Pilli Subhas Chandrabose and Mopidevi Venkataramana, Krishna Das was made the Deputy Chief Minister. On the other hand, Prasad Rao was still limited to being an MLA.
There have been rumors that the fact that his brother was made a Minister, and that he was limited to being an MLA initially, did not sit well with Dharmana, which drove a wedge in between them. Now that his brother has been made the Deputy CM, and the fact that he still didn’t get a Cabinet post, and is still limited to be an MLA, is also not such great news for the leader.
With these repeated disappointments, it is being said that Dharmana has lost interest in being as involved as he was previously. Dharmana is not taking care of his own constituency either, and is just keeping to himself. Well, it is definitely sad to see such an influential person go silent all of a sudden.
