Praja Rajyam Party president Chiranjeevi, at times, turns philosophical, while putting up a brave front on the party’s survival in some other times.
Reacting to the resignation of Dr P Mitra from the party, Chiranjeevi said there was no loss to the party, even if Mitra resigned. “He has done it for his personal reasons. It does not affect the party. Tomorrow, I may not be there in the party, but it will continue to exist,” he said.
It is not known whether he really wants to step out of the party or said it in a casual manner, but it shows the sorry state of affairs in the PRP. What will be the morale of the party leaders, if the president himself speaks so philosophically?
Tirupathi M L A – Chiranjeevi stated that in the next five years he would change the phase of Tirupathi completely, he is on a two days tour in Tirupathi.

Chiranjeevi has made up his mind not to get into movies again but still he is enjoying image of Megastar amongst people, It was proved once again during his Tirupati visit in the last couple of days. He still has a huge fan following and the people came on to streets to see their hero and present MLA. Had he been a normal MLA, there would not have been so many crowds on the streets just to see him and shake hands with him. It appeared as if they were watching only a film hero in him, rather than an MLA. He will, no doubt, get a similar reception everywhere in the state; even in a remote village.
TIRUPATI: Praja Rajyam (PR) president and Tirupati MLA Chiranjeevi on Thursday conceded that the party’s ‘rail engine’ symbol was too confusing and possibly ruined the winning chances of its candidates in the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
Participating in a ‘meet the press’ programme organised at the Press Club here, he said another factor which impacted the winning chances of the party was the alleged political contrivances behind fielding independents with symbols like tractor, bulldozer, bread etc. These symbols resembled the PR’s rail engine and confused ordinary voters, he said.
Mr. Chiranjeevi said the PR would take up with the Election Commission to allot it this time a ‘small and clear’ symbol. “We 100 per cent want to change the symbol,” he said.
To a question he denied that his brothers – Naga Babu and Pavan Kalyan — were sidelined in the party affairs. He said, they were not in active politics and as fulltime actors they had their own professions. Another reason he cited was to steer clear of criticism that he was encouraging nepotism in the party
On the stand-off between DGP S.S.P. Yadav and Chief Electoral Officer I.V. Subba Rao, Mr. Chiranjeevi felt the DGP was perhaps stretching the issue ‘too far’.
On the possibilities of the PR having a truck with like-minded parties in the ensuing GHMC and local body elections, Mr. Chiranjeevi said it was too early to take any decision. .
Praja Rajyam Party president Chiranjeevi will meet the party candidates who lost in the Assembly elections in the next two weeks. The meetings will commence on June 15 here and will continue up to 26.
In a press release, the party leaders said on June 15 Chiranjeevi would meet candidates of Adilabad, Anantapur and Srikakulam districts and on 16, those from Nizamabad, Kurnool and Vizianagaram districts. He would meet the candidates of Karimnagar, Kadapa and Visakhapatnam districts on 20, those from Khammam, Chittoor and East Godavari districts on 22 and the candidates from Mahaboobnagar, Nellore and West Godavari districts on 23. On June 24, Chiranjeevi would meet candidates of Nalgonda, Prakasam and Krishna districts.
On 25 and 26 he would interact with the nominees of Medak, Guntur and Warangal districts and Rangareddy and Hyderabad respectively. The PRP president would discuss the issues related to the party organisation and on the preparations for the local body elections.
PRP wants sub quota
Meanwhile, the PRP has decided to demand sub quota for BCs, SCs and STs in the women’s reservation bill to be tabled in Parliament soon. The party discussed the issue at a meeting presided over by Chiranjeevi and felt that unless BCs, SCs and STs were given sub quota in the reservation for women, the objective of the bill would not be achieved.
It appears that the party had decided to follow the line taken by the Samajwadi
Party with which it wanted to form a fourth front at the Centre.
The Praja Rajyam Party president Chiranjeevi is clueless as to how to go about in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation elections to be held immediately and the local body elections in the next few months.
The party does not have any organisational structure even now and it is difficult to build one in a very short time. So, some leaders like Kotagiri Vidyadhara Rao and Tammineni Sitaram have suggested to Chiranjeevi to have an understanding with the Telugu Desam and the Communists in the coming days, so that a stronger opposition can put up a strong fight against the Congress. “Barring TRS, we are prepared to have alliance with all the three partners of the Mahakootami, including the TDP,” Kotagiri told media persons on Friday.
In fact, the idea has come from the TDP itself. Party president N Chandrababu Naidu, who tried to lure all his erstwhile party friends who joined the PRP back into the TDP, suggested that it would be in the best interests of both the TDP as well as the PRP to join hands, if the Congress has to be defeated. Those who have not come from the TDP are not accepting the idea. If such an alliance takes place, they might even prefer to join the Congress, sources say. As of now, Chiranjeevi has no answer!
