Maverick producer-cum-director-cum-actor Posani Krishna Murali, who is known for losing his tongue at everybody, has now turned his ire on media baron Ramoji Rao.
On Wednesday, Posani made a scathing attack on Ramoji Rao for carrying a story in Eenadu Telugu daily that he had gone to Chanchalguda jail to meet YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy but was denied permission from the jail authorities.
“This is totally atrocious and wrong news. I did not go the jail at all. The report is nothing but infringement on my fundamental rights,” he said.
Accusing Ramoji Rao as a man without morals, Posani demanded that the former should tender an unconditional apology for the wrong news. “Otherwise, I will have to disclose bitter truths about Ramoji Rao and it would cause immense damage to him,” he said.
The maverick actor said the Eenadu chairman was suffering from Jagan phobia.
“You may target Jagan politically, but you cannot stop his political growth. He is sure to become the chief minister shortly,” Posani said.
It may be mentioned that Posani was once a staunch follower of Chiranjeevi, besides an activist of ertstwhile Praja Rajyam Party. Later, he shifted loyalties to Jaganmohan Reddy. He even declared that he would cut off his head, if anybody proved that Jagan was a corrupt politician.
“In the present day politics, only Jagan is the best and sincere leader. Chiranjeevi is also a nice man, but he proved a failure in politics by merging his party with the Congress. Now, east or west, Jagan is the best,” Posani said.
