Chiranjeevi gets rousing reception at RGIA

Praja Rajyam Party president K Chiranjeevi on Tuesday was accorded a rousing reception from the workers of the Congress and his party at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Shamshabad on his arrival to the city after the ‘historic’ decision to merge his party with the ruling party.

Mr Chiranjeevi was received with much fanfare, amidst beating of drums and with huge garlands.

The waiting workers raised slogans in his support and beaming Congress workers and leaders extended heartfelt congratulations to their PRP counterparts, hailing the historic (in Mr Chiranjeevi’s words) merger.

However, the enthusiasm of the ‘welcoming committee’ did not hide the fact that the absence of three PRP MLAs from among their midst was jarring. The 15 other MLAs tried to make up for their colleagues’ absence with their exuberance.

MLA Anil Kumar said the Congress party will sweep in the 2014 general elections by using Mr Chiranjeevi’s charisma.

Another MLA B Satyananda Rao said that Mr Chiranjeevi can achieve his party’s main goals, that of social justice by following the Congress principles.

When asked from the PRP MLAs if were eyeing their share of Cabinet portfolios, they said they were ready to accept any berths. They did emphasise that they had agreed to the ‘permanent union’ of the PRP with the Congress without any pre-conditions.

The PRP MLAs vowed that they would work in a coordinated manner with their Congress colleagues.
