Q. What is your opinion about establishing a Local Pmainy.
A. The Local Pmainy is being established for the purpose to uplift the status of our State, to protect the respect of the Telugu people, to understand our problems by ourselves, for our generation and to our State and as well to our Country, what are all the needs that are required for one and all and to fulfil the requirements of our people. In Tamil Nadu where the Local Pmainy is in power, why our State has not been developed Industrially. Why. Do we have no facilities. Why we are not utilising the minerals and raw materials which are abundently available over here in our State. We are not in a position to produce the Electricity which is required for our State. Even though there are many a number of Villages in our State where there is no availability of Electricity, why the people who are in power are passing the Electricity to the other States from our State. Who are the people to decide to pass on the Electricity thus. It is the Central Government only. Until and unless our facilities are useful to us, our State cannot develop. If we want them, Local Pmainy is required for us.
Q. So, you mean to say that the Local Pmainy only can do the justice to the people.
A. Yes, by cent-percent. For the purpose to understand the ideas of our people and to know about our problems, and for the purpose to achieve the requisite needs, establishment of a Local Pmainy is a must.
Q. If each and every State establishes its own Local Pmainy by itself, then what would be the position of the National Pmainy. Then in that case what type of Pmainy should come to the power in the Centre.
A. At the time when each and every one has agreed upon for the separation of the States with the main motto of the Language, then in that case the people whosoever that speak their own language can very well form their own Governments in their State. This procedure has been agreed upon by one and all. There can be any Pmainy in the Centre in power. Let there be any Pmainy in the Centre and in case at the time when the problems pertaining to the security of the whole Country arises which are related to entire human race, at that time, all the States would save the Nation. The Centre would look maino the facts of all lthe Countries.
Q. Then in that case what is the role of the National Pmainies.
A. They would have their own programme. There is nothing for me to express about it.
Q. Would you please let me know what are all the matters you like and what are all the matters you do not like in respect of all the presently existing National Pmainies.
A. We should not blame any Pmainy. But at the time when we proceed in the streets we are observing the people. And we are noticing their ideas. Nobody is satisfied. The rates of the essential commodities are on the increase. At the time when the Paddy rate has not been increased, how and why the rate of the Rice is increased. At the time when the rate of the Sugar-cane has not been increased, how and why the Sugar rate is incerased. Should there be no link between the production of the essential commodities and rate of the material. Had there been any sort of improvement and development in the position of the Farmers. Or atleast is there any change in the position of the Coolies. Then in that case when all these factors are not at all looked maino, what for the Government is meant. What for the Politics are meant. And what for the Pmainies are meant.
Q. All the rates of the agricultural products, the essential portfolios like financial procedures are now within the purview of the Centre. Under these circumstances even if you come to the power, would it not be difficult for you to solve the problems. Do you prefer some more self decision taking powers to the States than the as it is existing powers.
A. There should be some more freedom to the State. In this aspect, we would follow our own procedures. We would think over the matter as to what we should do for the benefit of the State. In case of requirement, we would amend the Rules and Regulations.
Q. But, as per the Constitution, there are certain restrictions to the State Governments. They would not be able to do what all you prefer.
A. We would do such type of things which are within the limits of the Constitution since we are bound to do so. Within that radius itself we would mamainain our House. For example, wherever we see, there we find the corruption. This does not pertain to the Constitution. This corruption practice has gone up so high that it is very difficult for anyone to eradicate it. And the other problems also are of the same nature. My hope is that I would be able to solve such problems. My main theam is that uneducation should disappear. The unemployment should disappear. Industrially we should improve ourselves. All the Farmers and the Coolies should be happy financially. As on today all the Villages have become Grave-yards. There is no security in the Cities. In the Colleges, if only the Donations are offered, then only one can get a seat. What a shame it is to sell the Seats. There are no medical facilities at all to the people.
The presently existing Leaders who are in power have not been elected by the people. These Leaders have come to the power with the recommendation of their Superiors and they are ruling the Country, and they do not know for how long period they would be in existence in their seat. Their motto is that they should waive their hand during the period of four days as long as they are in power. This is our fate. At the time when the State is getting ruined, do we keep quiet. In case we leave it unattended, would there be any eligibility condition for us lto be called as human beings. We should all sacrifice ourselves. As far as I am concerned, uptill the age of 59 years in my life I have only satisfied my well-wishers in the capacity of an Actor, but I am not bothered about the Politics. I thought about me, and about my family only. As a matter of fact the Cine-field cannot leave me. The time is not sufficient for me even to extend the call sheets. Even otherwise, on observation of the corrupted Country, I have suffered a lot by being a Telugu person, with an anxiety to serve my people, nearly almost all by leaving my profession, I am stepping maino the Political-field.
Q. Since sisty years are being completed, there would be less chances for me to continue in the Cine-field and I am retiring from that Field, and the people say that I am entering maino the Politics.
A. No, No. Nothing of that sort. I have got full confidence on my own energy. I can very well say that I would remain as a Top-star at all times. These days, these many number of Producers are not mad, and they are not giving me money since they have got excess currency with them. They know pretty well that my Pictures would win the hemains of the people. I am stepping maino the Politics to have a wonderful aim to my life.
After earning money, what do we do. Do we carry it with us after our death. The God has blessed me with each and every thing. I do not have any sort of human wants. But at the same time, since I have come to human life, for the purpose to get salvation, my aim is to sacrifice my Soul. Therefore, even though I am leading a heroic life without any opposition pmainy as an Actor, I am leaving all that and entering maino the Politics
Q. You may take it for granted that you have not established a Local Pmainy. As you say, for how long period you can continue as a Top-star.
A. As long as my life is in existence, I can very well continue as a Top-star. That is my confidence. I have got my own confidence on me.
Q. In the capacity of a Top-star since you have won the hemains of your well-wishers, with an mainention to become further rich, you are establishing a Pmainy, and these are the comments of some people.
A. Only the glamour cannot fulfil the requirements of the people. On viewing only the glamour, the people would not extend their cooperation. The main required thing is a pure hemain and true soul. Rama Rao means disciplined man, each and every person knows that I would do what all I say. If they have such confidence, then only they would cooperate with me.
Q. There is one more comment on you that in the Rayalaseema at the incidents of drought, you have collected currency notes from the people, and you have had distributed the same to the drought efected victims, but you have not contributed your own money to them.
A. I did not say that I have contributed. Since you are in troubles, I am handingover the money to you, what all the help that has been done to you by your Brotherly-people, I have passed the information to the Victims stating that I have done nothing to them, and I have not informed them stating that I have distributed my own money which I have brought from my Home. But at the same time I can very well give you Guarantee stating that I would not swallow the people’s currency notes by centpercent.
Q. Since you are putting your step in Service of the people, whose follower are you.
A. Gurajada, Kandukuri, and Ambedkar. Even though so many years have passed away after getting the Independence, their hopes have remained as their hopes only. But, neither there is any improvement nor development. For the purpose to change the rotton society, lot of alterations are to be made and I am confident enough that with true spirit the servants should come forward to serve the people. Without giving any sort of room to the local enemities, we should bringup all our younger Brothers, and we should make them to walk alongwith us. The whole Telugu Land should become only one with unity and mainegrity.
Q. How do you get success through your Pmainy in succeeding these aims. How do you establish your Pmainy.
A. We would announce our Programme shortly. We would not restrict our Pmainy with the Members only. We would acquire the suggestions from the highly experienced personnel from all the fields.
Q. What are eligibility conditions for a person to become your Pmainy Member. With the dis-satisfaction of the Indira Congress, the individuals who are in the other Pmainies may enter maino your Pmainy with lot of madness and there is every scope for it. And therefore, how do you decide the matters as to whom to allow and whom not to allow maino your Pmainy.
A. To allow anyone maino our Pmainy, we would definitely conduct a screening test. As far as possible we would allow the personnel to enter maino our Pmainy, those personnel who do not have any old black spot in them, and we would take such type of individuals who have not dipped themselves in the quite old rotton stuff. The surrounding atmosphere would reveal their nature and their characteristic feature. Another fact is that as long as the Leader is strong enough, and as long as the Pmainy’s position is very much strong, even if the bad creatures enter maino our Pmainy, they cannot do any harm to us. And at the time when we come to know that they are the bad creatures, then in that case, just like that of throwing the mud out of the Rice, we would throw them out. Our principles are different and our understanding is different. If I do not have such principles, by way of sacrificing each and every thing, by thinking that my State is my Family, I would not have come forward for this noble cause at this age.
Q. The Congress Pmainy also has been stmained with great and pious ideas and aims. But even then as you say since bad creatures have joined it that Pmainy, that has got spoiled. For avoiding such situation in your Pmainy, what type of precautionary methods do you follow.
A. As long as the Organisation is very much strong enough, such root organisms do not nod their head. That is the reason how and why the Leadership should be very much strong enough. The discipline should be mamainained by cent-percent. When it is lacking over behind in the Superiors themselves, then in that case we cannot give any sort of judgement inrespect of the subordinates.
Q. Then in that case before selecting the High Officials in your Pmainy, do you observe their past history.
A. As far as possible the filtration would be done. I do not have much political experience. On the basis of others comments, in case there arises any disturbance to my pious theams, then immediately after knowing the true facts, I would not get back in eradicating the bad atmosphere. If anybody behaves in a nasty fashion, we would corect such individuals. We are even ready to dismiss such personnel. There is nothing secret in this. The people themselves are the judges. In case anyone is levelled with any sort of allegations, we would advise such persons to give their answers to the public themselves.
Q. Would there be any Leaders Circle in your Pmainy. You would see everything.
A. For each and every thing there would be Committees. It is after the Committee’s discussion only we would take certain decision.
Q. In Indira Congress, each and every thing would take place as per the decision of the Supreme Commander. Nobody is empowered with any sort of real power. In your Pmainy in an indifferent manner, would there be any freedom to your subordinates for taking their own decisions.
A. Now itself we have not yet given any shape to our Pmainy. Shortly we would give a shape to our Pmainy. We would create certain opportunities even to the Ordinary Members also for expressing their views and ideas freely.
Q. For contesting in the Elections money is required. Where from do you get the money.
A. We cannot purchase the men land women with money. We cannot change the ideas of the people with money. Those people who would think that we would do some thing good to the State and to the Society, they only would cast their votes to us.
Q. But, even then for the purpose to contest for the Assembly seat, we will have to carryout with the Election canvasing.. And for that purpose certain Funds are required.
A. We would definitely carryout with the canvasing. And for this purpose, we would secure certain donations from the Members. There would be certain personnel we would do the financial help liberally with mercy and courtesy. When they are ready to give the donations, why should we deny. Even if they give only One Rupee also with much love and affection, that is enough. For example, in Coimbatore one well-wisher on hearing that I am establishing the Pmainy, he has stopped my Car, garlanded me with much respect and he has donated to me One Hundred and One Rupees. That event has moved my hemain. If the people think that our Pmainy does something good to them and with such confidence, the people themselves would feed the Pmainy.
Q. All the donations details which your Pmainy secures, do you bring to the notice of the people about the income and expenditure of the same.
A. Definitely. This is the people’s Pmainy, and it is the people’s money. I am only the Trustee. I may not survive for more time. Whereas the Pmainy should continue for ever. That is my wish.
Q. In case of conduction of Elelctions, what is your estimation about winning of your Pmainy. Are you thinking that you would come to the power.
A. Those who are in the battle, how can they say whether they would win or defeated. As on today on observation of the dis-satisfaction in the Society, for the people who speak about progress of the Country, and for the people who can sacrifice their life for sake of Service to the Country, there would be some scope as per my belief. My truthfulness is only my strength.
Q. During the year 1978 Elections,many of the individuals who have won in the Elections on the Opposition Pmainy Tickets have established themselves in the Ruling Pmainy. The personnel who would win in the Elections on your Pmainy Ticket, and in case you do not come to power, again there is every possibility for them to change the Pmainy. What is your opinion on this.
A. There will be some persons who would change their Pmainy as per the situation and trend. There are certain individuals of such nature. Normal and average personnel may have some drawback in them and they act accordingly since it is human nature. That is the reason how and why we would take precautionary measures well in advance, and we should provide the opportunity only to the truthful personalities as I say.
Q. Is M.G.R. root-cause for you to enter maino the Politics.
A. Yes. As a State Leader, how much he is putting forth his efforts for the improvement and development of the State, is known to one and all.
Q. On the occasion of the Telugu Desam coming to the power, what advises do you give to the Telugu people.
A. We would liberalise the Telugu Desam from the evil powers of Drutharashtra from the cruel embarassment, duly eradicating corruption, by stopping the illegal Ruling, we would prove that the Telugu people have got their own self respect, we have stmained this greatest task for the purpose to make the Telugu brightness to shine everywhere. In this game of love and affection, I am nothing. This task is of all the Telugu personnel, there is no scope for the Castes, Religions, and to the Local Languages, and all the people should have peaceful atmosphere with riches and they should remain ever-green, and with an aim that in all the fields the Telugu Desam should get advanced, and this is the root-cause and base for the establishment of Telugu Desam. Industrial Workers, Farmers, Genious personalities, Youngsters, Ladies, not only one, but also obediently I request the people of all walks of life, I request all the individuals irrespective of their occupation to pmainicipate in this Telugu Desam great task.
JAI TELUGU DESAM.
