Praja Rajyam party (PRP) president, Chiranjeevi, has said that he will not act in films any longer.
“I have listened to the producers in the past 30 years. Now, I will listen to you and serve you as a politician”.
Chiranjeevi began the day’s programme of his ongoing Praja Ankita Yatra in the district with a visit to Jillellamudi Ammavari Temple, near Bapatla, at 1 p.m.
He is scheduled to cover Pedanandipadu, Pattipadu, Edlapadu, Chilakaluripeta and Narsaraopeta.
He accused the Congress governments at the Centre and in the State of being incapable of announcing better minimum support price for paddy while the farmers of Punjab enjoy a higher MSP for wheat.
“All the projects are aimed at commissions and none of them is announced with public good in mind,” he alleged.
Outlining the broad strategy of his party, he said PRP would accord priority to irrigation projects if it came to power.
The PRP would chalk out an action plan for effective water usage and added that the party would take up certain projects on priority basis based on the immediate needs of the people.
He asked the Government why it had made lower budgetary allocations for irrigation projects if it was committed to complete them in the scheduled time.
Chiranjeevi alleged that more than 6,000 farmers had committed suicide during the Congress rule. Alleging that free power being supplied by the Government to farmers was of low-quality in odd hours, he promised to deliver 10 hours of free power and quality power if PRP came to power.
Meanwhile, two persons were injured when a motorcycle and a bicycle collided during the Praja Ankita Yatra at Edlapudu.
