Chiranjeevi’s political journey
For information, let us tell you that the popular actor entered politics by forming Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) in 2009, a few months before the elections in Andhra Pradesh. However, his party could win only 18 seats in the 294-member assembly. Later he merged the PRP with the Congress. In 2012, he was elected to the Rajya Sabha and made a minister in the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre. At the same time, after the partition of Andhra Pradesh in 2014, Chiranjeevi said goodbye to politics and returned to films.
