For the YSRCP, after actress Roja, who is adding glamour to their campaign, another ‘star' campaigner too hit the roads on Thursday. It was none other than Karunamayudu-fame, Vijay Chander, who was sporting a party flag and seen trekking through the colonies of the temple city with a handful of party cadres.
He was on a door-to-door campaign greeting and cajoling voters en route seeking, in a typical ‘filmi' style, their support to party candidate, B. Karunakar Reddy, former TTD Board chairman. Vijaya Chander was excited to see a house which had his wall-hanging from his film ‘Karunamayudu', in which he featured as Jesus Christ and won laurels from the public.
In fact, Roja, who hails from this district has been sweating it out trying to strike a personal chord with voters playing the ‘local' card. As for Karunakar Reddy, the party candidate, he is deemed an early bird into the voter's bazaar as he became the inevitable and natural choice for Jaganmohan Reddy for the Tirupati seat, given his strong political track-record. Karunakar was into the election campaign in Tirupati nearly two months ahead of other party candidates and is as such racing ahead, as far as the pace and reach of his campaign is concerned.
His campaign only received another glamour angle with ‘Karunamayudu' also criss-crossing Tirupati colonies trying to mobilise support for the YSRCP candidate. Jagan himself conducted an extensive road show in the town and added quite a bit to the existing tempo.
