Praja Rajyam President Padmabhushan Dr. Chiranjeevi on Saturday the 21st March 2009 sent shivers into the hearts of the opponents by beating the ‘Vijaya Bheri’ a huge drums at a record gathering in Secunderabad Parade Grounds.
This symbolized an official declaration of war against Corruption, Nepotism and misrule.
“They should come and see this gathering. If all of you breathe out once, they will be swept off in a torrent. Heeding my call in just 4-5 days, you have turned up in massive numbers here. Can’t the other parties see and hear this,” the PRP chief said at a massive ‘Praja Vijayabheri’ that marked the launch of PRP’s election campaign at the Parade Grounds here on Saturday evening.
During his one-hour speech, Chiranjeevi reacted to the Congress announcing its list of candidates for the Lok Sabha and assembly by saying that only the PRP can ensure social justice. “After us, all the other parties are speaking of social justice. Then how come the Congress has so few BCs as its candidates? In Chief Minister Y S Raja Sekhar Reddy’s native Kadapa district, could they not find a single BC candidate from there?” he questioned and said the same will be the situation with the Maha Kootami.
Holding placards that said ‘Maarpu’ which means Change, the crowd listened to his speech and applauded as he acknowledged his gratitude to them. “When I entered the film industry, I had to brave insults and humiliations. I was first recognised by you and then only by the film industry. Today, I have your love, affection and support. This is what will drive me,” he said.
TDP MLA Kothapalli Subbaraidu from Narasapuram in West Godavari joined the party on the occasion.
The meeting was attended by all the top brass of PRP like Hari Rama Jogayya, Allu Aravind, Parvathaneni Upendra, C.Rama Chandrayya, Devender Goud, Peddi Reddy, Kala Venkat Rao, K.S.R.Murthy,Pawan Kalyan,Vanga Geetha, Shobha Rani, Vasireddy Padma,Parakala Prabhakar,Tammineni Sitaram, Katti Padma Rao, Anjaneya Reddy and many others.
Unfortunately, due to the high price there are very few masks were seen in the ground. Party should extend some subsidy and the aspirants should bear some more and distribute the masks to the common public at a price band of Rs 50/- to Rs 100/-
Though it was announce that the meeting starts at 3:00 PM, it was delayed by 2 hours. Then the speeches were started by Jalli Siddayya followed by Shravan, Shobha Rani, Naga Babu, Vasireddy Padma, Katti Padma Rao, Enagala Peddi Reddy, Pawan Kalyan, Toola Devender Goud, Parakala Prabhakar and few more.
There were some scintillating folk dance performances, which attracted tremendous response from the crowds. At times the crowd also participated in the folklore.
The Vijaya Bheri seems to be a real Bheri which was used in the olden days. When Chiranjeevi started beating the drums along with Tupakula Munemma, Aruna Tara and Sayed Humayun, it sent shivers into the opponent’s camps. The war declared open. And it is not only the drums but the huge crowd that filled the entire Pared Grounds might leave sleepless nights to Chandra Babu and YSR.
The entire Parade Grounds were took a festive look with several cut-outs of Chiranjeevi, Pawan Kalyan, Allu Aravind, Naga Babu, Devender Goud and hot air balloons released by many ticket aspirants and specially there was a ‘Prabha’ which was illuminated by colorful lamps. The fire balloons released in the night were a special attraction. They adorned the Hyderabad skies like twinkling stars.
