There are 60 to 80 communities who do not have their reps in Assembly or parliament. The media is owned by rich not by middle class. After 60 years of independence wevers are committing sucides. really speaking educated are not really socially conscious people. I like chiru. I wish him all success.

But would like to clarify that although Rajkumar never formally joined politics, he was actively involved in the Gokak movement in Karnataka.

If chiranjeevi will become CM, he should clean our government well. I know…Not too difficult…also not easy., but he should work a lot,also we are expecting from him lot, first day of speech we noticed, The speech was absolutely good and he is considering all. Practically it should work, Hopefully he will be the best CM. He knows…the pain of difficult of life. so no need to explain more to him.

Wishig Mr. Chiranjeevi all the best, and may the Almighty bless him.

thank you sir

Whenever you are going to post a Blog you should do some research and homework.Because of the entire blog will be read y the reader and they have options of writing comments on it.I think you may undersatnd what i am saying that is about Rajkumar. HE did’t enter any politics in Karnataka.

Lets come to the topic i dont think so Chiranjeevi can become Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.Its not situation of Andhra pradesh at the time of NTR entering politics. After Y.S.Rajasekhat Reddy become the Chief Minister he has done a very great work for the Andhra Pradesh.Let me tell some thing about those

1.Formers electricity bills waived off and the suply of electricity become free.

2.Thousands of crores are investing on Irrigation project.

3.Old age pinctions encresed to 200 rs from 60 rs. And the amount is paided to them at their home on the 1st or 2nd of the month as paid to salary to ovt employees.

4.25 ps loans for women and for selfhelp groups without having any security.

5.Indiramma houses for every eligible individual who are eligible.

6.Arogya sree is helping for the poor people who are in need. Ration card become pass to the corporate hospitals.

Every individual benefitted in ANDHRA PRADESH with the programs of Y.S.Rajasekhar Reddy.

To tell like these there are tens of programs of Andhra pradesh govt.

If a person who benefitted by the govt in these four years , caste vote for congress, YSR becomes CM. It is enough to become Y.S.Rajasekhar Reddy CM again.
Then how the Chiranjevi become CM.

And also in Telangana there a new parties, at least they can secure some seats.

And the Telugu Desam also has Cine glamour and they are in aggressive for the power.if not atleast to secure second position after cogress.

3.

It would have been nice if you had a little more research before you wrote:

“Chiranjeevi, 53, is in good company. M.G. Ramachandran, N.T. Rama Rao, Rajkumar, J. Jayalalithaa and M. Karunanidhi had all successfully made the leap from silver screen to political stage”

Rajkumar did not want to and did not become a politician. He had a massive fan following but he never used it for political purposes.

I agree though that in South India (incl Karnataka and Kerala) movie stars find it easy to be successful politicians.

He had the charisma and support of people to rule

Not only in the State but also at the national level he will play a role which is as good as his film career
