Know what this Telugu star has to say, a privilege to vote!
By Swetaleena Mishra
An Indian film actor and producer chiefly known for his miraculous acting skills in Telugu film industry, Vijay Deverakonda Sai is now in headlines for his prodigious comments on dictatorship over democracy.
'Dear Comrade' actor, Vijay Deverakonda, recently in an interview commented on the current political system and the concept of democracy. He said that he firmly believes that everyone should not be allowed to vote in a common democratic country. Further, he said that he doesn't have enough patience to become a politician. People selling votes for money and liquor should be kept far away from the ballot box because they don't know the main motive behind voting and elections, rather the educated public should be allowed to vote with the most at stake, especially the middle-class people, neither rich nor poor.
Elaborating further about it in the interview, he gave an example of a plane with a proficient example. "...Like so there is this concept that when you get on a plane and flying to Bombay, would we all decide who will fly the plane? Like we should let the 300 people on the plane decide who is going to go on that plane? No, we let an efficient agency like the airlines decide who is most competent, or who understands the business or the best person to fly the plane."
This 'Arjun Reddy' actor even mentioned that educated people won't at all be swung by a small amount of money or alcohol which is offered to them as a bribe. He also voiced the corruption prevalent in politics. Mentioning further about his career in politics he said that if ever he enters into this diplomacy, he would choose to be a dictator. According to him, dictatorship is a good way to make a change that will pay you off after five to ten years, all you need to be is just a good guy.
These out of the ordinary remarks by Vijay on dictatorship set a classic example for the tweeps who once criticised him for his ignorance of democratic values. His fans flooded Twitter with a video of him on his concept of democracy and political systems.
