PS. If you want to wish YSR a very happy birthday on June 8th, visit this post.
Its election time in India. What ever may the case of other politicians, the leaders from Andhra Pradesh congress party aren’t leaving any form of campaigning that they think can turn into a vote. The chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, Dr.YS Raja sekhara reddy himself started a blog following his opposition parties’ prime ministerial candidate, Mr. LK Advani
Here is a snippet of what Mr.YSR has to say in his blog
“A true politician comes into his own in an election battle. When you meet ordinary people in the heat of an election, you get to hear their stories, their little and big aspirations; you see hope shining in their eyes. They come to you with little acts of kindness: an invitation into their hut for a meal, a kind glass of water. Their generosity humbles you. Only the most wretched leader would come away from such an experience without wanting to do good for them.”
Taking a leaf out from his party’s leader, famous tollywood comedian Dharmavarapu Subramaniam also started to blog. Since the launch of Sakshi news channel, sponsored by CM’s son Jagan Mohan Reddy, Dharmavarapu is seen in a program called ‘DING DONG’, which makes fun of the opposition leaders. Dharmavarapu is said to be a ardor follower of Superstar Krishna, who also supports the Congress party.
Here is a snippet of what Mr. Dharmavarapu has to say about his blogging
“I am not internet savvy. I use e-mail to keep in touch with friends and reply to mails sent by my fans. But anything else about the internet was Greek and Latin to me. But, as we all know, we have much to learn from our children. My sons, Rohan Sandeep and Brahma Teja, have always been prodding me to write my own ‘blog’. A blog, they explained, is something like a blank page in a diary. I can write my thoughts in it, just like in my diary. Seemed simple enough to me.”
Following the footprints of his leader is another tollywood actor turned politician, ‘Sahajanati Jayasudha‘. She has been announced as the Secunderabad Assembly candidate. She too blogs in the same website.
