As per the speculations in the corridors of power, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister has offered him a Rajya Sabha seat if the star is interested to go to the parliament again. They met two days ago in Vijayawada.
The official statement is that politics were not discussed. It was purely a courtesy call. Plus, Chiranjeevi requested CM Jagan to watch his “Sye Raa”.
Now, behind the scenes are being talked about. During their chat, Jagan is said to have asked Chiranjeevi whether he’s interested in serving as Rajya Sabha MP again on their quota. It is not known what Chiranjeevi’s reply was.
Chiranjeevi was Union Minister in PM Manmohan Singh’s cabinet from 2012 to 2014. His term as Rajya Sabha MP ended last year and Congress party didn’t nominate him again.
He has been staying away from active politics since the release of “Khaidi No 150” and is on a signing spree.
In a recent media interaction, Chiranjeevi categorically mentioned that he has no interest in politics. He also said he repented of joining politics.
Only time will tell whether truth lies in these speculations or not.
