‘People drawn to PR policies’
Chiru will contest from Tirupati, says Allu Aravind
‘May contest from Godavari districts too’
Praja Rajyam party president Chiranjeevi addressed a series of meetings at Velugodu, Atmakur, Pamulapadu and Nandikotkur before reaching Kurnool on Friday. He halted briefly at the Velugodu balancing reservoir to have the glimpse of the water spread area.
Mr. Chiranjeevi tried to drive home the point that people attending his meetings were serious about the policies of the party. There was no truth in the charge that they were awed by filmi glamour, he said. On the free power policy, he clarified that it was not the concession given to farmers alone but to the entire society. With the free power, farmers were not charging air-conditioners or refrigerators but producing food for people. If the government was concerned about the welfare of farmers, power should be supplied during the day. 0Party general secretary Allu Aravind who spoke to reporters said Chiranjeevi would contest from Tirupati and from one more seat from the Godavari districts. It would depend on the collective decision of the party, he said and added that Pawan Kalyan and Naga Babu would not be in the electoral battle.
