#DontBeaPriestBeaCM

We have voted for you to be a CM not a priest. I was absolutely shocked to learn that the Andhra Pradesh's Government has spent the rupees of 4 thousand crores for Krishna Pushkaralu. What do you think? Whose money was that? That was not at all your money. That wasn't only Hindu's money. That was also Muslims, Christians and many others' money. Then, how can you spend the tax payers money to a specific Hindu ritual? One should keep all their spiritual beliefs at home before occupying a CM's position. There are still many villages like ours which need roads and the government is spending a lot of money to promote spiritual baths. We got to see on RTC buses saying "Come and take dips in Pushkaralu and wash away your sins". How many dips in Godavari Pushkaralu will bring back the lives of more than 29 people who were killed in stampede soon after you have left the place very safely with your loved family. Who are you to promote a spiritual bath? Please be a CM not a priest.

I have made many attempts to bring into your consideration that villages like ours are still waiting for roads after 69 long years of Independence. The government has no time to do what it supposed to do. Because, administration is too much occupied to launch and maintain new applications like "Kaizala App (Connect to APCM), Twitter account and 1100 AP Call Center. I tried all those modes to get a road to my village. But, it seems to me that it is all for popularity not for any action. 


I raised the road issue in Connect CM mobile app (kaizala) on the very same day it was launched. NOTHING HAS HAPPENED.

Exactly on the same date 2 months ago on 21st Sept, received an IVR call from high tech AP CM asking if I was satisfied or not, my reply was no, then, my call was forwarded to a Human who found our village "Pulleticheruvupalli" nowhere in the system. However, she made a note of my village manually under the Gram Panchayat: Chintaparthi, Mandal: Valmikipuram, District: Chittoor. I was handed an arji number: 110010-7874624 with 3 months service time. Already 2 months have passed and NOTHING HAS HAPPENED.

Since then, I have received same kind of IVR calls 3 more times in the last 2 months. I was only asking about my arji number to which they said that there was still time. Nothing has happened in 2 months, no, no, nothing has happened in 69 years, what will happen in 1 month? I will keep hoping that something will happen till the last day...

Wish we have politicians in the country who believe that they will gain merits by laying roads. But, not by taking mere holy baths...

Helping Hand Through Flipkart


Yes, it was the time to cut and store Sorghum Crop (జొన్నతోట) for the coming Summer. But, there was no man power to come and work in the fields at the moment. At the same time, Chandra Babu (My Cousin) came to buy a wall clock through online shopping. I booked the one he has chosen among thousands of clocks and paid money. The product was delivered and I refused when Chandra Babu tried to pay back the money he owed. I proposed him an option to come and work in my farm for two days instead of paying money. He agreed and his next  two days were completely packed. 
It was an experience to see and understand the value of the wall clock as well as the time it shows...

A Forgotten Village



I belong to #AForgottenVillage called Pulleticheruvupalli, Vayalpad Mandal, Chittoor District.
Yes, our village is completely forgotten by our government. We still don't have roads to our Village. In spite of our very own MLA occupying Chief Minister's chair for around 3 years and the current CM is also from our district. He has been CM for around 12 long years. What is it all about? How do we look at it? Even After, 69 long years of Independence, there are villages like ours which are underprivileged. Yes, underprivileged, while rest of the India is moving towards metro and bullet trains, reaching to space and we from #AForgottenVillage struggling to walk on the ground so badly. A good road to the outer world is still a dream in the 21st Century for us. How paradoxical it is in our country as every leader/politicians pities the conditions of villages and make big promises. But, on the ground something hardly happens.

Tweeted to #APCM @ncbn and Newly elected Rural Development Minister @NaraLokesh  and waiting for the response.
For sure, nothing would change for many more decades, unless if you help  us in  making the world hear our cry.
