Chiru calls Kiran back-stabber
Chiranjeevi Calls Kiran Kumar Back-Stabber. The State might have remained united if the former chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy had not deceived the people.
Vizianagaram: The State might have remained united if the former chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy had not deceived the people. Earlier, he had cheated Seemandhra people, now he resorted to back-stabbing Congress president Sonia Gandhi by deserting the party at a crucial time though the party made him chief minister, said APCC campaign committee chairman K Chiranjeevi. Addressing party workers at Vizianagaram, he said that there was no loss due to bifurcation of the State. It has given us an opportunity to put the residual State in fast forward mode to develop it into the most prosperous and modern State.
Bus yatra a ‘mega’ flop
Srikakulam: The much-touted ‘bus yatra’ of Seemandhra Congress leaders had no takers in Srikakulam. Half of the 500-odd seats were empty when the meeting started at Indira Bhavan, the District Congress headquarters. The youths, who rushed to the stage to have a glimpse of the Megastar, left the venue as soon as Chiranjeevi started his speech. Raghuveera Reddy, Pradesh Congress president of Seemandhra, and Chiranjeevi likened Congress to a mother who was abandoned by her grown-up, greedy children. Chiranjeevi repeated the famous dialogue of Shashi Kapoor from Hindi movie Deewar.
“Mera Pass Maa Hai”, he said while replying to criticism that he had merged his Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) with Congress for small gains. Earlier Raghuveera Reddy, Pradesh Congress president, released a pamphlet containing copies of letters written by TDP president Chandrababu and YSRCP president Jaganmohan Reddy requesting the Central government to bifurcate the state.
