HYDERABAD: Clad in his trademark white shirt, black trousers and the party’s `kanduva’, Praja Rajyam president Chiranjeevi arrived in the Assembly accompanied by his party legislators. Chiranjeevi, who took oath in Telugu as member of the Assembly earlier in the day, was the cynosure of all eyes as leaders of all parties shook hands with him. Lensmen and videographers scrambled to shoot him and even security personnel and others present in the Assembly premises tried to take a close glimpse.
Even in the house Chiranjeevi attracted the attention of the members. He sat on the first bench in the fifth row from the left side of the Speaker.
Party deputy leader G Srinivasa Rao sat with him.
All the members greeted Chiranjeevi along with Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy and Opposition leader N Chandrababu Naidu. When B Usharani, who defeated Chiranjeevi in Palacole came to the podium to take the oath, all eyes in the House turned toward Chiranjeevi.
After taking oath, she greeted Chiranjeevi. Meanwhile, the PRLP urged the Speaker to allot a office for it in the premises and a chamber for Chiranjeevi in the House
