Praja Rajyam Party gets a drubbing in his own native district

May 16, 2009
Eluru, East Godavari

The humiliating defeat of Praja Rajyam party president K Chiranjeevi in Palakole of his native West Godavari district comes as a rude shock for the party rank and cadre. The Praja Rajyam Party president lost to his Congress rival, B Usha Rani by a margin of 5,600 votes. He preferred his in-laws' place to his birth place at the last minute reportedly under the pressure of his well wisher and party senior Ch.Hariramajogaiah.

Chiranjeevi's drubbing at the hustings in Palakole and the party's poor show all over the district bring under focus the plank of social justice which harped on and the intra party game of one oneupmanship in the ticket distribution. The pattern of voting in Palakole indicates that his party slogan of social justice seemingly failed to fetch his votes.

The perceived failure by the PRP in realizing its social justice plank in ticket distribution seemingly marred the poll prospects of Chiranjeevi in Palakole and those of his party all over the district. It resulted the Praja Rajyam Party had to settle for Tadepalligudm out of the total 15 seats in the district.
