Political analysts some months ago
felt that it would a Herculean task for megastar Chiranjeevi to
face the media when it come the matter of his political entry.
Cracking such fallacies, the actor spoke with perfect ability as a
potential politician, giving calculated answers mixed with
witticism and humor. From the start to finish, at no point of
time, Chiranjeevi felt embarrassed or minced for words. It was
like a free flow. Following is the gist of Chiranjeeviís media
interaction, touching on various important issues.
Farmersí Issue in the state
People think that I donít know anything about farmersí problems.
You have only seen me as an actor for thirty years. But, what was
I before becoming an actor, thirty years ago? I do come a very
modest constable family. We had just five acres of land. As a
student and whenever I reached my village, I used to become a
farmer. A scientific study would be launched into their problems
for effective troubleshooting.
Declaration of Assets
Already I made it known to the Income Tax department about my
Is politics in state totally rotten? Any
No. I donít think so. I strongly believe and perceive that people
are in need of a constructive change. They are wholeheartedly
inviting such a change. Yes, there is a big vacuum-like situation
in the state. If not, why such a roaring response to my political
entry in the state?
Who are your rivals? YSR or Chandrababu?
I donít have any rivals in politics. Those who have the capability
and goodness are always fit to do politics. My rivals are poverty
and hunger. From my heart of hearts I loath backwardness. The good
is not reaching the public to the lowest level. Poor are becoming
even poorer and rich, richer. I want to cement this growing gap.
Are you a Robinhood?
No, I am the livelihood of the poor and downtrodden people.
Certainly, I will change the present scenario. Basic point of my
agenda is Pro-Poor.
Any retirement from films?
All these thirty years, the film industry took me into her caring
fold. How can I forget it? The very thought of separating from it
is heart pinching to me. Whenever there is a need to do
socially-relevant films, I shall do. This is also like public
service. Such films should be highly respectful.
Placement for women in party
We all know that women constitute half of the sky. Though, we may
not be giving fifty percent prominence, but we shall give highly
appreciable place to them. It is women who are my major strength.
At present, we are not interested. Now, our movement is only with
the people. If such a thing really comes, definitely we will
consider and there is nothing wrong in it.
Who are your political gurus?
People are my gurus. They will decide me where we should stand.
Money is necessary to run a political party?
What about you?
Yes. Money is very important for administering a political party.
People will give that. People are my wealth. I will run the party
with the Abhimanam of my people.
How many seats you are expecting?
I already said I am not for power or position. It is for the
people to decide how many seats to give to me.
Your response to migrations of other party
people into your party?
Yes. If there is any person who is politically experienced,
holding the potential to inspire the youth, he is welcome for us.
Anything lacking in Babu and YSR
It is not my concern. Coming to me, I wish to do things with a
difference. It is most vital to me.
