Chiranjeevi went to the nearby college and had a bath before proceeding on his Yatra. He said that he would not be afraid of such attacks.
Meanwhile, TRS Chief K Chandrasekhar Rao condemned the attack on Chiranjeevi and exhorted his followers to be peaceful as violent activities were not the agenda of TRS.
Three TRS activists were later detained by the police for reportedly hurling the eggs at the megastar during his road show here in the Telangana heartland. Later, the PRP resorted to `Gandhigiri’ when its men distributed eggs and omlettes to passers-by at Ravulapalem and Amalapuram in East Godavari and Narsapur in West Godavari. While the activists staged rasta rokos at I Polvaram, Mummidivaram and Kakinada in protest against the TRS workers’ action, some held a rally holding candles in Eluru on Tuesday night.
Asserting that nothing would deter him from moving ahead in his march towards achieving social justice, Chiranjeevi said: “I thank those who have thrown eggs at me. Incidents like this will not affect me.”
One egg landed directly on his face, while others hit his media advisor Kanna Babu and his personal security guards in the convoy. Reacting sharply, Chiranjeevi said he would accept garlands and eggs alike and that he would not go back on his mission. “I will not leave politics fearing such incidents,” he thundered amidst claps from the crowd.
Turning emotional, he said he had the support of crores of fans who were ready to make supreme sacrifices for him. “I know pretty well that the political path is full of thorns. But I would still go ahead to bring the much-needed positive change in society,” Chiranjeevi added.
The provocation for the TRS men to resort to the act was Chiranjeevi’s alleged lack of clarity on the contentious Telangana issue. Though the PRP founder said his party would support any move by the Centre for creation of a separate state during his Jagtial road show, the TRS has been insisting that he should clarify his party’s stand on the `T’ demand.
At some places during his road show, the TRS activists kept waving their party flags and tried to stop the actor’s convoy. However, at the next meeting at Nekkonda, there were no TRS protests fearing reprisals from PRP workers, who broke the glasses of a four-wheeler owned by a TRS leader at Nekkonda.
Shame on TRS or who ever is behind this
