Nandamuri Harikrishna had been Member of Parliament (MP) in Rajya Sabha (RS) until 2014. His speech in Telugu in the RS was a sensation, as he spoke powerfully in his barritone voice. Harikrishna had been a passionate lover of the Telugu people and their language. He died in a car accident this morning, while on the way to Kavali in Nellore, to attend a marriage. Harikrishna's contribution to the filed of cinema as well as to Telugu Desam Party (TDP), is immense, his colleagues said.
