There was a bad remark on Mahesh Babu sometime ago that he logs onto his social networking account only at times when he needs to promote his film or when the time exactly coincides with his movies release dates. So, all this could be a part of self or movie promotion and the same logic is now applied on his visit to Burripalem. As we all know, Mahesh promised to adopt Burripalem in Andhra Pradesh and Siddha Puram in Telangana during ‘Srimanthudu’ release period.
Later on Mahesh never turned up towards these villages. Exactly when it is ‘Brahmotsavam’ release time, he is back playing same card by visiting Burripalem yesterday handing over cheques and health cards to poor villagers. Reports suggested, a private hospital in Vijayawada wanted to cash on these health cards and there’s no idea on how useful these cards can be for poverty stricken Burripalem people in future. Moreover the cheques disbursed also belonged to Government schemes which have nothing from Mahesh in personal. Well, MP Galla Jayadev’s role comes to significance here.
There is also breaking news on internet media saying that, Mahesh fixed Burripalem schedule along with inauguration of a massive real estate venture lying exactly near to this village. Galla Jayadev again reportedly played crucial role locking the two occasions just like two birds at one shot.
Despite the overall criticism shot at Mahesh Babu for playing self promotion tricks like a pure businessman, paradoxically there’s no report on what are the developmental programs Mahesh Babu really promised Burripalem during this visit?
Is Mahesh really kind and pure at heart? If so, his actions should speak louder than words. Rather than simply going to see and spend time in Burripalem, he should do something in concrete to erase the fault-findings from media agencies. May be when Murugadoss movie readies for release, his activities might turn active again!
