Has megastar Chiranjeevi ceased to be a member of the Congress party? The answer is yes, according to the party sources.
Chiranjeevi, who has been keeping away from the Congress party activities for quite some time and focussing only on his film at present, is learnt to have refused to renew his party membership, which has expired recently.
He politely turned down the request of the Andhra Pradesh Congress leaders to take the lead in the party activities by renewing his membership.
It would mean Chiranjeevi is no more a Congress party member.
However, it is not clear whether he has decided to quit politics altogether or take a plunge into his brother Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena Party at the time of election campaign for the coming assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
Already, all the Chiranjeevi fans have shifted their loyalties to Jana Sena Party lock, stock and barrel. While they continue to be fans of Chiranjeevi for his films, they are going to take active part in Jana Sena Party activities politically.
The megastar has been in a silent mode ever since the Congress party was wiped out completely in the 2014 elections.
He continue to remain a Congress MP till recently, though he hardly attended the Rajya Sabha sessions, but remained concentrated in films. At present, he is busy in shooting abroad for his multi-crore movie Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.
Another reason for Chiranjeevi deciding to come out of the Congress party is its plans to join hands with the Telugu Desam Party, which he does not like. Instead, he is learnt to have thought it right to give backroom support to Pawan Kalyan.
The latest comment by former assembly speaker Nadendla Manohar that he had joined Jana Sena with the blessings of Chiranjeevi lent credence to the reports that the megastar is playing crucial role in building up Jana Sena, sources said.
