Telugu states woke up to sad news of Nandamuri Harikrishna’s sudden death in a car accident. Following his father NTR’s footsteps Harikrishna is a ardent lover of Telugu language. He had been crucial leader in TDP party that was founded by his father to keep up Telugu self respect.
Harikrishna was known to be straight forward and fair person. He resigned as Rajya Sabha MP during bifurcation of Telugu states. He gave his resignation speech at Parliament in Telugu itself. It is unfortunate that Harikrishna passed away on Telugu Language Day (Aug 29th). May his soul rest in peace.
