Rajya Sabha member and Congress leader Chiranjeevi has said that he would spend his MP Local Area Development (MPLAD) Funds in Tirupati. He said this while campaigning in Jeevakona, Thimminayudupalem, Auto Nagar and other areas of the Tirupati constituency and held road shows.
Speaking on the occasion, he said he would always be grateful to the people of Tirupati who gave him birth in politics. He said that under the facility he had to adopt a district and develop it as an MP, he had adopted Chittoor district. He said he would be a permanent member of Tirupati and develop the area.
Referring to the allegation of the YSR Congress president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy that the welfare schemes initiated by his father Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy were dispensed with, Chiranjeevi said if they could prove that any welfare scheme was stopped, he would withdraw from the campaigning that very minute. He said that Jagan was trying to preach morals to others, unaware that he was riding the dangerous tiger of corruption. He warned that the minute the tiger gets tired and stops, it would swallow him.
Referring to the campaign of Jagan’s mother Vijayamma that her family was meted out with injustice, he questioned if Vijayamma was unaware of the injustice done by his family to several families which were thrown on roads
