Amravati (Andhra Pradesh) [India] Apr 7 (ANI): Nara Brahmani, wife of Nara Lokesh and daughter-in-law of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandra Babu Naidu, on Sunday held a roadshow for her husband in Mangalagiri Assembly constituency.

From there onwards, she met villagers at Penumuli and Chintalapudi and spoke with them for a while. 
Brahmani urged people to consider the efforts made by the TDP to develop the state. 
It is worth mentioning that Brahmani is a granddaughter of TDP founder N T Rama Rao and daughter of film actor and MLA Balakrishna. 
Brahmani, who is an entrepreneur, also works for the well-being of society through NTR Trust.
Lokesh had filed his nomination paper on March 23 to contest from Mangalagiri constituency in Amaravati in the ensuing Assembly polls, while his father N Chandrababu Naidu will contest from Kuppam seat in Chittoor district for the seventh consecutive time.
TDP supported the BJP-led government after 2014 Lok Sabha elections but withdrew the support in March last year over the issue of special status to Andhra Pradesh.
