Chiru Doesn’t Remember Tupakula Munemma!

Do you remember the name Tupakula Munemma? Well, you may not. And it is not surprising at all. But what is surprising is that Praja Rajyam Party president K Chiranjeevi also doesn’t remember who she is.

When a media person asked him why he was not encouraging leaders like Tupakula Munemma, Chiranjeevi wondered who she was. For a moment, he could not understand about whom the scribe was talking about. The scribe had to remind him that Munemma was the courageous Dalit women in Nellore district who was attracted to the social justice slogan of Chiranjeevi and made an inspiring speech at his road show in Nellore a year and half ago and the PRP president gave her the party ticket to contest from Kovur assembly constituency in the 2009 elections.

It was only then Chiranjeevi could recall her, or at least acted recalling. He said he had given her enough encouragement and it was up to her to make use of the opportunity and take active role in the party affairs. “There is no need to invite anyone into the party activities,” he said.

Answering a question over his observation about strengthening the party, the PRP president said that it did not mean that party was weak now. He said that the actor in him is still alive and he doesn’t mind acting if a message oriented good script comes on his way. However he doubted whether he can do justice at the present juncture where he is thick into politics.
