Parakala Prabhakar, a former TV anchor and miscellaneous occupation activist, shot into limelight as the official spokesperson of Chiranjeevi’s Praja Rajyam Party (PRP).
When the fledgling PRP was still toddling in nappies, Mitra and Parakala were always adorning the small screen authoritatively stating the aims, ambitions and ideologies of the party.
As the elections approached, the political migrants to PRP from Congress, TDP and TRS were finding favour from the party leadership.
Yesterday, Parakala conducted a press conference at the PRP office and announced his resignation from the party describing it as a vicious poisonous tree.
Parakala says he is too cultured to blurt out the real reasons for his resignation or the actual state of internal affairs of PRP.
The funny thing in the entire episode is that Parakala puts on airs as a seasoned politician tangentially hinting that without him there is no Chiranjeevi or the Praja Rajyam Party.
If PRP has suddenly become a poisonous tree, wasn’t Parakala’s contribution there for that phenomenal situation to develop as he says he was one of PRP’s founding fathers?
As it is the people feel embarrassed with politicians of the ilk of YS Rajasekhar Reddy, Nara Chandrababu Naidu, K Chandrasekhar Rao et al.
Why does Parakala impose himself on us as the most probable political savior bent upon bettering the society but feels battered by the actual founders of PRP?
Does Parakala require day long TV coverage for venting his personal political ambitions that went haywire?
The I-Am-OK-YOU-ARE-NOT-OK syndrome of Parakala and his generous exhibition of Holier-than-Thou mindset are too nauseating to say the least.
It is better that people like Parakala retire into the splendid wilderness of the uninhabitable Himalayas where he can only blame himself for anything and everything, for the simple reason that no one will be there within reach to throw blame on.
