Earlier today, senior actor Naresh sparked a controversy. While speaking about Sai Dharam Tej’s accident, he cited examples of the sons of Kota Srinivasa Rao, Babu Mohan, and others who died due to bike racing accidents. These comments gave fodder to media houses which were trying hard to add bike racing angle to the accident.
Now, the whole development has escalated into MAA elections issue as Srikanth and Bandla Ganesh who are set to test their luck in the forthcoming MAA elections are calling Naresh out for his comments.
Srikanth said Sai Dharam Tej is a matured person and he isn’t the kind of individual who’d be involved with bike racing. He said Naresh shouldn’t have made such insensitive comments while speaking about Sai Dharam Tej.
Bandla Ganesh said Naresh shouldn’t be commenting about bike racing and citing examples of those who’ve lost their lives due to racing at a time when Sai Dharam Tej is being treated at a hospital.
There is nothing wrong in Bandla Ganesh and Srikanth reacting to Naresh’s allegedly insensitive comments but with MAA elections round the corner their statements appear to be attaining election flavour. The fact that they are calling out the current president of MAA, Naresh adds more weight to the point.
While Srikanth is an integral member of Prakash Raj’s panel, Bandla Ganesh is independently contesting for the general secretary position.
