Chiranjeevi favours newcomers in politics

Special Correspondent

KADAPA: It is high time ‘new blood’ enters politics as newcomers with a clean record could alone bring about a desirable change for betterment of society, Praja Rajyam president K. Chiranjeevi asserted on Thursday

Mr. Chiranjeevi, who addressed meetings during his road show at Chapadu, Mydukur, Khajipet and Chennur on the second day of his ‘Praja Ankita Yatra’ in Kadapa district, maintained that a ‘real change’ would improve the lives of the common man and the middle class. His roadshow drew impressive crowds despite being at least four hours behind schedule.

Reiterating his resolve to root out ‘political corruption’, which jeopardised societal interests, he called upon people to welcome a change for setting up a new order. Development should not be confined to a particular place, he stressed. He was a determined soldier and people were backing him; both could build a progressive society. This goal could be reached only when welfare schemes reached every household.

The party’s policies would be pro-farmer, he said.

Referring to Krishnapuram (KP) onions, a pungent variety which has large export potential and is grown in vast extents in Mydukur, he assured to give a fillip to export if his party was elected to power.
