Prajarajyam president K Chiranjeevi on Sunday came under a scathing attack from his former aide Parakala Prabhakar, with the latter accusing him of forcing candidates to part with their movable and immovable assets in return for a ticket of the party.
Addressing a crowded media conference, Parakala, who quit PRP a month ago accusing it of functioning like a company, said that the PRP bosses owed people of Andhra Pradesh a public apology. He said his allegations against the PRP bosses before he quit the party were vindicated by the poor mandate to the party. He also said that Saturday’s verdict was a slap on the face of people who tried to hoodwink the voter through their theatrical performances.
He said people in Telangana, Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra buried PRP in the elections without a trace as they could see the hidden agenda of the PRP bosses. This verdict would also deter any other actor from taking to politics with an ulterior motive. “Bosses who thought they would be voted because of their glamour have been shown their place in real life,” he said.
Parakala alleged that PRP bosses forced aspirants to part with their movable and immovable assets like finances, plots, houses, land parcels and cinema halls in return for a ticket of the party. “The day is not far away when you will hear news about people asking PRP bosses to return their respective properties that were forcibly taken away from them. I personally feel that the PRP bosses will return these assets if candidates who feel cheated insist for the same at the earliest, as there have been instances wherein they have returned money to candidates after failing to allot a seat to them,” he pointed out.
Parakala said Chiranjeevi was suffering from a disorder which psychiatrists describe as an illusion of grandeur, wherein people start to feel that they are able to visualize the shape of things to come according to their wishes. “It takes only six months for him to get cured,” he pointed out.
Parakala said the election results showed that PRP’s edifice was built on deceit and mistrust. “Personal agenda was of paramount importance to PRP, hence they were rejected at the hustings,” he said.
Urging the PRP bosses to do a thorough introspection, Parakala suggested them to approach the Registrar of Companies to register and later shut it down in the interests of the people of Andhra Pradesh. They (PRP bosses) neither cared for the candidates nor received their phones all through the elections. “The ones who could win was only because of their respective personal charisma and efforts,” he said.
