Sivaji Raja said contestants vie for the president’s post only with a motive to serve the association. He said he long befoere implemented all the welfare activities that two contenders Manchu Vishnu and Prakash Raj listed out in their respective election manifestos.

“Evey small development in the apex association has become a debatable topic on television primetime. It is because of Naresh, the MAA association is embroiled in all these controversies. As far as I know, actors who obtained membership in the association can take part in the voting. This time there is a tough fight between Prakash Raj and Manchu Vishnu. Both are determined to win the president’s post and serve the association. I feel the term period of MAA president should be increased from two to four years, because in the last two years, welfare programmes weren’t implemented in a full-fledged manner.”

Sivaji Raja further suggested a solution saying, “If both the contenders share the power.. say Manchu Vishnu for two years as MAA president and Prakash Raj as MAA general secretary and if they could swap their posts for the next half, there would be no problems to anyone. This process should be undertaken duly after consulting and discussing with industry bigwigs like Krishnam Raju, Murali Mohan, Krishna, Chiranjeevi and Mohan Babu,” he added.

The 900-member association is going to polls on Sunday. The results are expected to be out on Monday.
