If Obama wins, will Chiranjeevi also win ?
Praja Rajyam Party president Chiranjeevi on Thursday drew parallels between himself and US president-elect Barack Obama and said he would score a massive victory like the latter.
Addressing a packed public gathering in Kothagudem on Thursday, Chiranjeevi said he was also fighting for social justice like Obama. He pointed out that the United States, which was dominated by whites, elected Obama, an American-African, as their new President.
“Here too, the people will give a win to Praja Rajyam that is fighting for social justice,” Chiranjeevi said. “Our people should also follow the Americans to give scope for social justice. I think people of our state also want change.”
Chiranjeevi said that the Praja Rajyam came into existence on the slogan of social justice and the party would give priority to the oppressed sections. Many castes and sections were kept away from power for generations and these things had to change, he added.
“I come before you not as leader but as a servant,” he said. “You should change society by bringing in a government of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
