MAA President Shivaji Raja's Camp convened a press conference Today to condemn the allegations of misuse of funds.
Hero Srikanth clarified there is no truth in the allegations of diversion of the funds raised for MAA building. '50 Members of MAA attended US Event of Chiranjeevi garu. This is the biggest event ever conducted by the Association. We received the agreement amount from the US organizer and that's what matters the most. Whether if the Organizer earns profit or incurs loss, MAA will have nothing to do with it. When My Name appeared in media reports, I asked General Secretary Naresh to issue a clarification by attending the press meet but he didn't come. I won't visit MAA Office again and cancel my membership as well if anyone could prove there is a shortage of at least 5 paisa of the Agreement Amount. That's my open challenge! Are those who made allegations ready to make the same challenge?,' he shotback.
MAA Treasurer Paruchuri Venkateswara Rao denied division in MAA after the US Event. 'Naresh couldn't be here due to a film shoot. When we took charge a year ago, MAA had a fund of Rs 2.10 crore. Today, It has increased to Rs 5.60 crore. We are hopeful of achieving our target of Rs 10 crore with the upcoming events to be attended by Nagarjuna, Mahesh Babu and Prabhas. We wish to built a wonderful MAA Office and celebrate Silver Jubilee,' he informed.
