In politics power does many things and people give value to the politician based on the power he holds. There again once he holds a post people analyze the power the post is associated with and how much clout that post has. No one care for the person who loses power and that is the reason why politicians cling to power even when they are on their death bed. However to the shock of all Andhra Pradesh’s Roads and Buildings Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao who tendered his resignation following CBI including his name in the chargesheet on Vanpic land allotment, is witnessing his popularity soar in view of his cabinet colleagues, party workers and others.
The moment of his resignation was heard, Ministers, MLAs and Congress senior leaders thronged his house. Some in the congress leaders were seen remarking that ‘Power’less Dharmana seems to be more popular than ‘Power’ful Dharmana. Many say with his popularity on rise who knows in future he may be in race for the CM post. Some analysts predict that at present his stars are on rise and he is enjoying all importance and media attention on equal footing to CM Kiran Kumar Reddy.
This shows anything may happen in politics. Currently Dharmana may be down and out but people will be mistaken if they write him off completely.
