There are rumors that senior actor Krishnam Raju may be sent as the Governor of Tamil Nadu. News is coming that Krishnam Raju will replace Banwarilal Purohit who took over as the Governor in October 2017. Krishnam Raju wanted any key post in either of the Telugu states, but the BJP high command was planning to send him to Tamil Nadu.
Krishnam Raju has been a BJP leader for a long time. Krishnam Raju has won twice as a BJP MP in the past. He also served as Foreign Minister in the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government from 2000 to 2004. He left the Kashaya Party and joined the PRP in 2009.
He rejoined the BJP before the 2014 elections. With the BJP focusing on Tamil Nadu through the coalition party, the party feels it needs their allegiance as governor in the state when it goes to the polls this summer. Part of it is that Krishnam Raju guarantees the position.
The BJP hopes that the party will also have the support of Prabhas fans across the country if Krishnam Raju is given the post. On the other hand Krishnam Raju has been away from movies for a long time. Resting at home with health issues as well.
