Battle for 2018 Assembly polls: Actor Upendra begins 'Prajakarana'”

Ahead of the announcement, the actor on Friday night sent an audio clip on Whatsapp and through Facebook indicating his imminent plunge into politics.

This is not the first time that a big star is entering politics. "I'm now working on a film".

It is known news that Upendra is a fan of Narendra Modi and there were rumours of his joining the BJP earlier. Speculations were also rife that he will be meeting Amit Shah in Bengaluru.

Upendra observed that many good people stay away from politics assuming that it takes a lot of money to start a party. Nonetheless, there will be clarity on the issue only after his press meet. We don't need Rajakiya (politics), but Prajakiya (people-centric democracy).

Addressing the media persons, Upendra who wore a "Khaki" shirt (depicting himself as a Karmika) said "Corruption in any political party begins when they take money from individuals to contest elections".

"As a hero in films, I have fought a many a battle against money power and muscle power". Upendra intends to complete his film commitments before plunging full time into politics. "I urge the public the suggest a name for the party". He will be reaching out to people through social media and other media outlets. But, Upendra was calm and confident about the task at hand. As of now, I have chose to launch a platform for like-minded people. Asserting that a transparency will be maintained at all levels, even while selecting candidates, he said "we will share what is his/her qualification and ideas they have to solve public concerns or problems". He said "I'm not blaming any political party or anybody....they have all got entangled in a circle. I will do my job with honesty and sincerity for the salary I'm paid", he added.

The 49-year-old Sandalwood hero has created three e-mail IDs to seek ideas and suggestions from the people and their willingness to join him in serving as a "worker" of his would-be party.
