Actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi seems to be giving anxious moments to political parties with his election campaign. His oratory skills have become the talk of the town.
During the ongoing bypoll campaign, Chiranjeevi is delivering aggressive speeches. These speeches have become an instant success with people who are thronging his meetings. His recent potshots at Jagan and Chandra Babu Naidu drew the attention of his opponents. Many analysts and supporters of Chiranjeevi say that he has matured a lot during the last four years in terms of delivering speeches. “Yes, there is a change. This is because as a politician and as the president of PRP, Chiranjeevi met the public to gauge their problems. His interaction with the SEZ victims and Vanpic victims made him understand public problems,” P Vikram, a close associate of Chiranjeevi said.
Another Congress leader and minister, P Viswaroopu reasons that Chiranjeevi’s entry did the required magic. “After joining the party, he met seasoned politicians and big leader . His interaction with these leaders and observation of their speeches helped him gain experience,” Viswaroopu said.
During one of the campaigns at Allagadda constituency, AICC AP incharge Gulam Nabi Azad. praised the actor and called him a star campaigner. According to Chiranjeevi’s associate Vikram, Chiranjeevi is striving to fulfill his promise. “He promised the high command that he would play a catalyst for strengthening the Congress,” he said.
Complete metamorphosis Four years ago, when he founded PRP, Chiranjeevi was a completely different man. When launched a state-wide Praja Ankita Yatra, as precursor to 2009 general elections, being film star, he could attract crowds but failed to engage them. Many of his speeches lacked substance. Political circles are abuzz with news that Chiranjeevi, would get an elevation post by-election for his services. A confidant of the actor told Postnoon that he will be made union minister after the election.
