A common voter stops union minister Chiranjeevi from flashing his VIP status
UPA's Union minister, K Chiranjeevi was completely embarrassed today by a commoner, when he was stopped from breaking the queue of voters at a polling station in Andhra Pradesh.

The entire incident was caught on the camera, when Chiranjeevi was trying to directly walk into the polling centre in the posh Jubliee Hills (Hyderabad) with his other family members while ignoring the queue to cast his vote. 

While he was trying to do so, an aware voter stopped him and asked him to follow the rules. He told the actor-turned-politician that he can't have a special treatment at a polling centre as each voter is equal in the eyes of election commission.

Chiranjeevi was accompanied by his security guards, his wife and son Ram Charan Teja. In order to pacify the loud voice of the voter, the actor and his family went back and stood in the queue.

After casting his vote, when he had been interrogated by the media on why he tried to break the queue, he said, "There is no question of violating. I am not such a person who can violate. Just to cross check whether my name is there or not in the voter list I went to the table and asked the officer. They checked and said, yes your name is there. Meanwhile, press is so enthusiastic and they thought that I am violating certain rules. No, I am not such person but a person who respect 'Democracy'."
