Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi launched his Praja Rajyam (People’s Rule) at a mega rally at holy shrine of Tirupati which was attended by nearly 10 lakh (one million) fans. Fans went out of control at the site leading police to lathicharge on them.
While taking the oath in the name of Lord Venkateshwara to dedicate his life to serve people, Chiranjeevi said
I know your problems, pains and sufferings and will always stand by you. I know about Ganji as well as Benz car. I had experienced poverty first hand during my childhood.
I was inspired by Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, who asked me to enter politics and do my bit to cleanse the system.
NTR had floted Telugu Desam Party (TDP) in 1982 at the very same Tirupati nine months before the elections and had created a record in AP politics.
