TIRUPATI: Praja Rajyam president and Tirupati MLA K. Chiranjeevi on Thursday left no stone unturned to lift the sagging morale of his party cadres in the district.
On his maiden visit to the constituency that voted him, Mr. Chiranjeevi conducted a district-level review meeting and thanked the people of the district who had voted in favour of the party candidates. He also told the party workers in no uncertain terms the need to get in touch with the grassroots.
After offering prayers at Tirumala, Mr. Chiranjeevi drove down to the suburban Padmavathipuram where he inaugurated the party’s local office in the building adjacent to the residence of party leader Chadalawada Krishnamurthy. He was mobbed by party enthusiasts and youth wherever he went. In a closed-door meeting with district convener Jangalapalli A.Srinivasulu, former legislators A. Mohan and Ch. Krishnamurthy, office-bearers S. Muni Subramanyam and Kathula Sudhakar among others, Mr. Chiranjeevi was learnt to have made some plain-speaking on the reasons for the party’s defeat in the State and the factors that led to its poor show in the district as well.
The meet discussed at length the gaping gaps in the party’s administrative machinery and its failure to appeal to the masses, in spite of all the initial hype on the party and the halo around the leader. Mr. Chiranjeevi was learnt to have told the workers not to get dejected as the party had made significant strides in reaching out to the weaker sections, as could be seen from the voting pattern. He held separate meetings with leaders of the 14 constituencies to get first-hand information on the lacunae in the setup and the reasons for the dent in the expected vote share.
