Has actor Sivaji opened another conspiracy theory? Or is this a sequel to another Garuda Purana? Is the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) behind this latest conspiracy theory? These questions are valid since Sivaji has always been loyal to TDP. Now with Megha Engineering & Infrastructures Limited (MEIL) coming forward to take up the Polavaram project, he came out a new series of conspiracy theories to defame the YS Jagan Mohan Reddy government and MEIL. With these new allegations, and in his new avatar does he want to blackmail MEIL to give a booster to Chandrababu Naidu’s allegations? In the backdrop of the current political developments, he is suspected of a new political conspiracy with these allegations on MEIL. The earlier conspiracy theories including the TV9 investment episode also has been proven as a conspiracy by him and the former TV9 CEO V Ravi Prakash.
With political benefits from TDP, as part of the conspiracy, Shivaji released a curtain raiser to Megha blackmail on Polavaram reverse tendering against the AP government. This kind of blackmailing tactics are not new for him and his close friend Ravi Prakash.
It may be recollected Garuda Purana, a conspiracy theory by Sivaji was opened on March 22, 2018, especially when Chandrababu prestige was marred. This series ran for one and a half a year. Despite that , Chandrababu was defeated in the 2019 elections. The crux of this theory is that BJP joined hands with YS Jagan to defeat Chandrababu. He accused the BJP of allocating Rs 5 crore. The Naidu-backed yellow media also gave top priority to this hogwash , but did not elicit any praise from the public instead it had serious repercussions in the elections results.
Conspiracy theories floated using his acting abilities
Sivaji at that time was in a crisis and was not getting any roles in the Telugu film industry. Then Chandrababu Naidu and his associates used Sivaji to unveil these conspiracy theories using his natural acting talent. On September 8, 2018, Shivaji first rolled out the Garuda Purana theory and all TDP leaders continued with conspiracy theory cacophony. The aim was to brainwash the public before the 2019 elections but they got no mileage out this.
Then started Operation Dravida for South India. For a year and a half, in the same way as he tried to talk about a preposterous prophecy of the BJP and trying to bring the South under its wing. However, this also proved to be a failure with the public laughing at his cock and bull stories only. And in the end, he ended making a fool of himself.
An ugly BJP prediction
At the same time, if Modi was in the lead role, the BJP would be limited to the Lok Sabha seats with 80 to 120 and this prophecy failed miserably. He later announced that the central investing agency would give notices to Chandrababu about a date and time in September last year to which Chandrababu also reiterated. Even after days and months had gone Chandrababu had not received any notice from CBI and there were no signs of getting one either. Moreover, TDP was making efforts to get closer to the BJP, Chandrababu sent his MPs to BJP in planned manner.
The BJP is also working against the YSRCP government and is pro-TDP. Moreover, this is getting enormous publicity in yellow media. In the past, the BJP did not get importance in the media. Recently, when the Chief Ministers of Telugu states met in Hyderabad to discuss inter-state relations, the yellow media reported that these two CMs were conspiring against the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Information on YS Jagan attack also a story
At the same time, he came out with a new story that the conspiracy to murder a leader (indirectly on Jagan) was only for political advantage. This was also a bid to l create unrest, law and order problems in the state. In fact, at the same time, there was an attack on YS Jagan at Visakhapatnam. Even then, he did not reveal how he got the information about the attack. However, after the attack, there was no law and order problem in the state, and the Central government did not dissolve the state government. The sole aim of this whole conspiracy theory was to defame the YSRCP and YS Jagan.
E-mails that revealed Raviprakash-Sivaji conspiracy
To create problems for the new management of TV9, the former CEO V Ravi Prakash knocked on the door of NCLT. The conspiracy of Ravi Prakash and Sivaji once again created no problems for the new management. The cyber crime police had a testimony that the agreement between these two was not an old deal but conspired to make a case in law tribunal and signed a fake share purchase agreement with an old date. In connection with this conspiracy, the cyber crime police seized several e-mails between Shakti, CFO Murthy, Ravi Prakash, Hari, who is a close friend of Ravi Prakash.
Raviprakash-Sivaji backdoor investments in TV9
The case was filed in the NCLT for their investments in TV9, and on May 24, 2019, the judge rejected the case of those who were not considered as investors. In fact, an agreement was made by Sivaji on February 20, 2018, to purchase 40 shares from Ravi Prakash was prepared on April 13, 2019, to influence the judgement. This agreement copy was forwarded within their close circles. This agreement was found to be fake by the cyber crime police.
The latest in Megha’s story...
Actor Sivaji’s opportunities in the Telugu film industry have dwindled and he is what we can now call an out-of-work actor. He campaigned for TDP in recent elections. This celebrity is known to hog the limelight always and the yellow media is always there to help him. At the same time, YS Jagan’s government is probing the corrupt practices of the earlier government and cancelled the Polavaram Project contract and called for reverse tendering.
MEIL bid for the project with Rs 720 crore which was less than the base price. The new government committed to complete the project on a fast track mode without any corruption. This act attracted criticism. Chandrababu has created Polavaram quid pro quo. The government of India allocated Rs. 3545 crore for the next three years for electric mobility incentives. But, Chandrababu alleged Rs. 7500 crore quid pro quo in the AP itself. Even though Andhra Pradesh government has no special preferences in engaging electric buses in the State, Chandrababu is alleging that the APSRTC is purchasing the buses in a big way to benefit contractors. But the actual fact is that it running in losses and APSRTC has stopped purchasing new buses and depending on leasing buses.
MEIL has been accused of tendering a major work in Polavaram Project for a lower price, i.e. 12.6 percent less. Chandrababu is alleging that this loss will be compensated by purchasing buses from MEIL group company Olectra GreenTech on a quid pro quo basis. In this process, they fielded Sivaji once again to create a fresh conspiracy theory on MEIL.
With this Sivaji released the videos in selected social media platforms. His intentions are very clear to defame the AP government and blackmail MEIL. This looks like a script similar to another Garuda Purana scripted by the TDP. As he is acting on behalf of TDP orders, and has come forward with a fresh theory on Polavaram Project and dragging the MEIL into the controversy. By blackmailing the MEIL, he wants to give advantageous position to Chandrababu and his quid pro quo allegations.
But this time even the yellow media is also not keen on promoting these absurd theories.
