We all know that there are 11 actors from the Mega family. Who holds the record for the family with maximum number of politicians? Congress Party’s first family clearly takes the cake. Motital Nehru, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Vijaylakshmi Pandit, Feroz Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sanjay Gandhi, Menaka Gandhi, Firoz Varun Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi make a cricket team – as many as 11 politicians.

Karunanidhi’s family too has a record of its own. Karunanidhi, Alagiri, Stalin, Murasoli Maran, Dayanidhi Mran and Kanimozhi make it to the record book with six names. Ditto with Kumaraswami of Karnataka. His dad Devegowda was PM. His brother Revanna, wife Anitha, son Prajwal and Nikhil are also in politics. This is five. But, Chandrababu beats them all with his silent penetration.

His brother Rammurthy Naidu, son Lokesh are already in politics. His brother in law Balakrishna is an MLA and another brother in law Harikrishna was a minister and an MP. Of course extended Nandamuri family also has NTR, Daggubati, Purandeswari in politics. Interestingly, the TDP is the party which strongly opposes the family rule of the Congress.
