Actor Dr Rajasekhar has alleged that both the Telugu Desam president, Mr N. Chandrababu Naidu, and the Praja Rajyam chief, Chiranjeevi, were adopting “back-stabbing” techniques from the bestseller 48 Laws of Power penned by Robert Greene.
Writing in his wife’s blog “Rajasekharam”, the actor, who is now campaigning for the Congress, termed Chiranjeevi a “wolf in sheep’s clothing”.
Here is Rajasekhar writes about Chiranjeevi:
“As I know, Chiranjeevi always hid behind a veil of hypocrisy. The actor is spinning another tale, this time political. I have no problem if Chiranjeevi or his brother enter the political arena. The country has seen the likes of NTR and MGR emerge as chief ministers after their successful career in movies. But the comparison ends there. MGR and NTR were a different breed. They had a special connect with the people. They were not shallow and hypocritical. They practiced what they preached.
The humble drama
I laughed at the inaugural speech of the megastar in Tirupati when he claimed that he had humble beginnings and ate ganji during his youth. These are his exact words: “I survived in Madras with less than Rs 100 per month. People need a person from such background to lead them. My roles in cinema always represented weaker sections.” That was an awesome performance in real life too!!! He doesn’t stop there. He wallows in self-pity.
Here is another example :”I am from a very humble background. We had just five acres of land. My father was a police constable.” So what if his father was a police constable? So what if he had just five acres of land? How many artistes are struggling to make both ends meet? Did he ever make an attempt to wipe out the tears from their faces? Does he know the background of artistes in the film industry?
What help did he offer to the legendary actor Kanta Rao’s family or for that matter any artiste who died in penury? All of us had humble beginnings. I used to help my mother in milching milk, sell eggs and make pidakalu (cow dung cakes) to ease her burden. I get tears when I recall those days. But I have done no favour to my mother by helping her. What has his humble beginnings got to do with social justice and all that jazz? Has he counted the number of cars he has? Where did this money come from? Does he even show his gratitude to the masses who made him what he is now? They idolise and worship him, but what do they get in return? Not even a hand wave from his Benz/BMW tinted glasses.
Party of Pawan Kalyan, for Nagababu, by Allu Aravind
I had a hearty laugh when he stated that “My party is of the people, for the people and by the people.” Well, Chiranjeevi, your party is of Pawan Kalyan, for Nagababu and by Allu Aravind. His another pearl, “I take an oath in the name of Lord Venkateshwara that I will be with you. You don’t need a leader. You need a servant. It is my motive. I want to restore the honour of politics.” Such blatant lies.
Has he forgotten how he treats his servants? Has he forgotten how he roughed up his car driver when he ate his left-overs? Or for that matter, how he treats his own family members, especially his daughters? What help did he render when his servant asked for mere Rs 50,000 for his daughter’s wedding? Leave alone giving the money, Chiranjeevi sacked the servant. So much for Samajika Nyayam!
Wolf In Sheep’s Skin
Chiranjeevi ‘oka meka vanne puli’ (a wolf in sheep’s skin). My blood boils when I see through his two faces. His inside and outside are deceptive. His another gem, “I don’t know politics. I can’t understand it. But I know the suffering of people.” Where was he when the farmers in the state were committing suicides? Where was he when weavers were ending their lives in Siricilla? He visited Siricilla after earning crores of rupees in the film industry and shed a few crocodile tears. Was he not aware of the weavers’ sufferings before he entered politics?
Another boastful statement, “I founded hundreds of blood and eye banks.” Whose blood is it anyway? Has he given it for free? Has he or his brother donated blood? The blood bank is the contribution of lakhs of his fans who revered and adored the man. But what gratitude does he have for them? Several people died in stampedes while buying his cinema tickets. What help has he offered to the kin of all those people who died in stampedes? Mr Chiranjeevi, your fans not only gave their blood but earned bread for you and your entire family. But in return what they get is your irreverence and utter contempt.
Social justice sham
Chiranjeevi’s social justice mantra is just to corner votes and not to render justice to the downtrodden. How can there be social justice as long as Praja Rajyam Party remains the private property of one family? Chiranjeevi has mastered the art of turning politics into business. To do real social justice is to give the deprived access to quality education, health care, employment opportunities and social security.
In his career spanning over 30 years, has he done anything in this direction? Leave social justice, what justice has he done to his native Mogalturu. He earned crores of rupees but hasn’t spent a penny for the development of his village. He sold a library in Mogalturu for Rs 3 lakh when some people approached him. ‘Samaji ka nyayam, em samaji ka nyayam? Fine, but does he have Manavatva nyayam?
I ask Chiranjeevi how many of film artistes are supporting him? Can he name a few actors who are supporting him apart from his brothers Pawan Kalyan, Nagababu and brother-in-law Allu Aravind. This is because he has no credibility in the industry. Has he given chance to any new director? He behaves like a ‘sarva adhikari’ and crushed the careers of so many people.
48 laws to power
Chiranjeevi follows the book ’48 laws to power’ written by Robert Greene as a Bible. The book is full of “vennu potu” ideas. I saw the same book in the house of Chandrababu Naidu. I quote from the book: “Everything is judged by its appearance; what is unseen counts for nothing. Never let yourself get lost in the crowd, then, or buried in oblivion. Stand out. Be conspicuous, at all cost. Make yourself a magnet of attention by appearing larger, more colorful, more mysterious, than the bland and timid masses.” That sums up his personality.
The shame Guevara
His brother Pawan Kalyan thinks he is the reincarnation of Che Guevara. Beating up directors and fighting on streetes, pulling out revolver’s doesn’t make one a Che Guevara. Does he even know who Che Guevara is and what he stood for? It is a shame that Chiranjeevi and Pawan Kalyan are misusing photographs of great personalities like Mother Teresa, Dr B R Ambedkar and the likes for their selfish political ends. Look at the irony, Chiranjeevi talks of Mahatma Gandhi who was a peace apostle while Che Guevara took the violent path to achieve his means.
Appeal to voters
I appeal to the voters to exercise their valuable franchise on the basis of development. I request the voters not to get carried away by filmi glamour and vote for a party that provides good governance. If you like your hero, please watch his movies three times or even 10 times, but don’t give away your vote cheaply. Is it worth to pledge the interests of our state in the hands of one family? Think about it.
