Sources say that from the last few weeks the candidates those have bought tickets from Allu Aravind got doubts and are running behind him to pay back as they would like to withdraw. Even after the election they have forced Aravind to give back at least some percentage of their money as they are not sure of winning.
Grapevine says that then Chiranjeevi has come into scene and said, “Don’t worry. Even if you lose in your constituency, we are coming to power and forming government. You will be given good contracts and your money will always be safe”.
But now the result is out and Allu Aravind himself lost the game fully. We have to see if Allu Aravind gives back the money or runs away, says a victim of Rs 1.5 Cr from Ongole.
Anil Reddy, who contested from Adilabad as PRP candidate took Rs 1 Cr for 2% interest and bought the ticket. He already spent Rs 50 lakh from his pocket. He thought that the ticket is confirmed free of cost as he is close to Allu Aravind. But in the last moment Allu demanded Rs 1 Cr and hence Anil had to go for getting that for interest. Now he lost interest on PRP and is also struggling to pay interest for Rs 1 Cr as well. Even Anil is with anguish and looking if Aravind pays back at least some amount, say sources.
