People hurl eggs and chappals at hero Chiranjeevi
PRP chief and Congress star campaigner Chiranjeevi has experienced the worst insult of his life in this district. People jeered and threw eggs and footwear at him as he began to speak in favor of Congress. The former Mega Star faced this bitter experience in Pulivendula.
Sarcastically commenting about the incident, Chiranjeevi said, “I was actually wondering why people of Pulivendula have not shown their true culture, when they have shown it.” He has called upon the people to keep up the honour of Pulivendula. Pulivendula Congress candidate Vivekananda Reddy who was on the campaign vehicle along with Chiranjeevi, removed his footwear and threw them aside.
Locals while discussing about the attack and Chiranjeevi’s reaction to it, are saying that the former actor has expected such response for criticism on Jagan and came prepared for it.
In another place in Pulivendula, when Kadapa Parliament Congress candidate D L Ravindra Reddy and Tulasi Reddy took mikes into their hands and were about to start their speeches, people shouted them out. They however ignored the disturbance and continued their speeches asking the people to vote for Congress.
Police have taken into custody three persons in connection with the attack on Chiranjeevi. They are reportedly Jagan’s supporters.
