As per a Hindu news story, 'Praja Rajyam' as a party name has already been registered by a Cuddapah resident with Election commission and it has been approved.
It will be interesting to see now how it works out.
Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi's bid for Election Commission's nod for his newly-launched political outfit "Praja Rajyam" appears to have run into trouble as another man has already sought registration of his party of the same name.
A resident of Cuddapah district in Andhra Pradesh has already filed an application before the Election Commission seeking to register his party in the same name.
EC sources said the Cuddapah resident has filed his application three or four months back and the EC has also processed his application. The Commission also sent a reply to him.
The sources said the Commission was yet to examine the application of the megastar who moved the Commission on August 26 to register his new political outfit as Praja Rajyam.
Update (31st Aug): We learnt that the Cuddapah resident who registered a political party with the same name 'Praja Rajyam' has agreed to withdraw from Election commission, clearing the way for Chiranjeevi to register his party with the same name.
