Chiranjeevi
Hyderabad, April 30: Union Minister Chiranjeevi might have experienced one of the most embarrassing situations in his life when he was stopped by an aam-aadmi (common man) from jumping queue in a polling booth in Hyderabad on Wednesday, April 30.

A voter, Kartik, who has come from London to cast his vote in Andhra Pradesh, raised voice against Chiranjeevi and his family inside the polling booth.

Karti said, "Do you need special treatment? You may be a union minister, but you are not a senior citizen. You should not jump the queue with your family."

The situation became more worst for the minister and family when other voters started clapping. He was forced to walk back and stand in queue. His son Ramcharan Teja, also a star, left the polling station but returned later to vote.

However, Chiranjeevi downplayed the controversy by saying, "I never violate rules. I had just left the queue to see if my name was in voting list. The media is overreacting."

Meanwhile, micro-blogging site Twitter reacted against the actor-turned-politician. Voter to Chiranjeevi tag has been trending on the site as people have been expressing their wrath against the Congress leader.
