When Megastar Chiranjeevi began the campaign for the by-polls, he mentioned that his ‘charisma’ would bring in atleast 5 seats to the Congress party. That was an impressive statement given by him and even the high command was happy with his confidence. And in no time, Chiru managed to make some tours for canvassing too.
But now, the results have come out and it turns out that forget the 5 seats, even the Tirupathi seat which was owned by Chiru has gone to the YSR Congress party. To add salt to the wounds, the Congress candidate lost by a whopping 18000 votes to Karunakar Reddy which is nothing less than an insult to the Congress.
This has led to a talk among the congress circles that since Chiru have not been able to deliver, his getting a berth in the union cabinet will be in suspense. Already, few members from the mega camp are reportedly giving an up to date report in Delhi and explaining how no party stood a chance in front of Jagan mania and the Vijayamma sentiment. All are waiting to see what explanation Chiru has to give for this.
