Everybody was curious how Praja Rajyam Party president Chiranjeevi would speak for the first time in the assembly on Thursday, but his maiden speech was more than impressive.
Though the PRP president got only three minutes to speak on the election of N Kirankumar Reddy as the Speaker, he utilised the opportunity very well. “When I told media persons yesterday that there is a perfect harmony in the assembly, they laughed at me and told me that worse was yet to come. But on the second day itself, I could see how rival parties attack each other with such bitterness. I did not expect it,” he said.
He said the PRP would play the role of constructive opposition party. If the government does good, he does not hesitate to support it; but if takes anti-people policies, he would definitely expose the government, he said.
