Chiranjeevi to take oath as RS member on April 3rd
Newly elected Rajya Sabha member K chiranjeevi on Tuesday stated that there was no truth in Endowment Minister C Ramachandraiah’s complaints that the erstwhile Praja Rajyam members were being treated as ‘second grade citizens’ in the Congress party.
Talking to media persons at Congress Legislature Party Office after receiving the certificate from the Returning Officer, chiranjeevi said that Ramachandraiah has expressed the feelings of some ground level workers and it was not his opinion.
Stating that the PRP has not received any raw deal in the merger with the Congress party, chiranjeevi said that the merger has strengthened the Congress party and saved the government from threats.
Admitting that the merger was yet to reach the ground level, he said that it would take place at all levels in a phased manner.
chiranjeevi said that he would resign from Tirupathi MLA constituency on March 29 and administer oath of secrecy of Rajya Sabha on April 3. He said the Congress party has increased his responsibility by elevating him as the Rajya Sabha member.
Stating that former chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy inspired him to join politics, the actor-turned politician stated that his election as MLA has helped him a lot to know the problems of people.
