Most of the leading Tollywood stars Chiranjeevi, Balakrishna, Pawan Kalyan and Junior NTR have given their support to one or other political party. But Mahesh Babu is one Telugu Superstar, who has always maintained distance from politics. Now, he is also joining the bandwagon of other leading stars. He has expressed his support to his brother-in-law Jaya Dev Galla, who is contesting MP elections from the TDP from Guntur constituency.
Superstar Mahesh Babu took to his Twitter page this morning to express support to TDP MP candidate Jaya Dev Galla and posted a long message on TwitLonger. The actor wrote, "I've always maintained that I'm apolitical.. still am. However, I need to break my silence to talk a little about my BIL @jaygalla who is contesting for MP from Guntur."
Mahesh Babu continued, "From the time he married my sister, Padma, when I was only 13, he has been an inspiration and role model to me. At first, it was because of the way he took care of me and treated me. Later, I understood how he was able to develop a vision and translate it into reality with values, as can be seen in how he steered the Amara Raja Group and the Amaron Brand into what they are today. He has been recognized by media, industry bodies and his peers for his achievements."
Mahesh added, "He has always talked about wanting to enter politics, and I never really understood why, given my own dislike for the field. He always said that the only way to create change is to improve the quality of people entering politics.. And that through politics, you can serve the maximum number of people. One of his favorite quotes, "One man can make a difference, and every man should try."
The Businessman star concluded, "I believe in him, and I believe he can make a difference. He has my support and my vote, and I hope he has yours as well. @jaygalla represents hope for the future of Guntur, Andhra Pradesh and for India."
