Reigning superstar of Telugu films Mahesh Babu on Thursday extended his support to Telugu Desam Party's Lok Sabha candidate from Guntur, Galla Jayadev, saying the latter represented hope "for the future of Guntur". Mahesh Babu, who always maintained that he was apolitical, said, “I need to break my silence to talk a little about my brother-in-law who is contesting for MP from Guntur." Mahesh in a tweet said that he believed in Jayadev and believed that he can make a difference. Jay Galla, as he is popularly known, is the vice-chairman of Amara Raja Group and has jumped into the electoral battle for the first time. The actor's endorsement comes as a big boost not only to Jay but also to the TDP in coastal Andhra in general and Guntur in particular.
Mahesh said that Jay has been an inspiration and role model to him. “At first, it was because of the way he took care of me and treated me. Later, I understood how he was able to develop a vision and translate it into reality with values, as can be seen in how he steered the Amara Raja Group and the Amaron brand into what they are today. He has been recognised by media, industry bodies and his peers for his achievements," Mahesh noted.
Jayadev had always talked about wanting to enter politics. Mahesh said he never really understood why, given his own dislike for the field. But Jay always told him that the only way to create change is to improve the quality of people entering politics...And that through politics, you can serve the maximum number of people. Referring to the passion for public service by Jay, Mahesh said Jay used to tell him, "One man can make a difference, and every man should try."
