“I’ve joined Telugudesam party in 1999 and till now I’m wearing their party kanduva as a cadre only. But now I want to wear a kanduva as a candidate only” said comedian Ali, verifying that he is very much interested in contesting as MLA in 2019 elections.
Verifying that he is neither invited by YSR Congress nor by Pawan Kalyan to contest in 2019 elections, Ali said that both the parties are racing on high expectations from people.
What happened with Janasena? “Pawan Kalyan never asked his family or his friends into the party. He told me to be an actor of all the masses, rather than just getting limited to one particular party and becoming a man of fewer audiences”.
What happened in 2004 and 2014 with TDP? “Actually they have offered me Sattenapalli ticket both the times. But I’ve regularly asked them either for Rajahmundry or Guntur ticket. Even now, I’ll ask them Guntur I Town or II Town ticket”. Nevertheless, Ali hasn’t verified about the party he is really challenging from and kept his options open. Whoever offers him a ticket from Guntur I Town will likely get his admission into their party. But he ended this logically: “As a guy from a particular community, I want elevation and want Minister post as well. Whichever party offers me that, I’m there for them”
