Chiranjeevi's grand entry into politics

August 18, 2008
"I will do things differently so that the benefits of development reach the last man in the queue. Andhra Pradesh is the richest state but its people are the poorest. I will work to fill the growing gap between the rich and the poor. After 30 years in the glamorous film world, I have decided that my path goes towards politics to serve the people. I dedicate myself to the service of the people."

With these words, Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi ended year-long speculations and announced his entry into politics.

Addressing a crowded press conference, the actor declared, "My fight is not against any other politician but against hunger and poverty".
