The cultural program Alai Balai that has been hosted by veteran Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) leader Bandaru Dattatreya for 16 years has caught up in the news with the reports of Janasena founder Pawan Kalyan ignoring Manchu Vishnu at the programme. The media reports are abuzz with these reports.
As the reports on the issue were spreading fastly, Manchu Vishnu had stepped in to issue a clarification. Without saying anything, he shared a video on his Twitter account. In the video, Pawan Kalyan can be seen hugging and striking a conversation with Manchu Vishnu.
Now that the video was shared by Manchu Vishnu, we got clarity that there is no truth in the media reports and news that Pawan Kalyan ignored Manchu Vishnu at the Alai Balai programme despite the latter trying to talk with him at the cultural programme.
The other day, Manchu Vishnu spoke to the media on the issue and said he and Pawan Kalyan spoke and urged everyone to not believe such news. We had a conversation there but the media did not show that and highlighted the reports. Manchu Vishnu said, during the conversation, Pawan Kalyan told him to take care of MAA.
Giving his reason for not talking with Pawan Kalyan on the stage at th Alai Balai programme, Vishnu said, he did not make a conversation on the stage as it would not be appropriate to speak to others when a big dignitary like Vice-President M. Venkaiah Naidu was giving a speech.
In the MAA electrons issue that went through a lot of developments, Manchu Vishnu emerged victoriously and won as the MAA chief. He and his panel members took oath at the Film Nagar Cultural Centre. MAA Election officer Krishna Mohan administered the oath-taking process.
However, the MAA controversy is not over yet. Prakash Raj who earlier asked the election officer to release the CCTV footage from the polling room had watched the footage at the Jubilee Hills Public School on Monday. Saying that it will take one week to monitor the total footage, Prakash Raj has thanked MAA President Manchu Vishnu for permitting them to watch the footage. Earlier, the Jubilee Hills cops had seized the footage room.
