Hyderabad, India, July 23, 2013 : Its usually Hero Vishnu Manchu’s performance in cinema that most people are interested in. But today, Actor Vishnu Manchu has a different message – “I’m here to vote,” the actor was quoted saying this morning after being spotted at the local Panchayat Polls in Triupathi. He was among the early few who went to cast their vote.
“Every Election Day is important. If you choose to throw it away, don’t complain down the road that you don’t like the choice after poll results are declared”, he added. When the actor arrived to cast his vote early today, the police had to resort to mild lathi charge to stop the swelling crowd who were rushing to catch the glimpse of the star.
Despite his tough and tiresome schedule, the actor has always found the time to lend a hand to those less fortunate. The actor has adopted 10 villages near Sri Vidyanikethan Engineering College in Tirupati to provide the opportunity for the under privileged community to access good education, good Sanitation, clean water and access to primary health.
The village development model is a true partnership with local communities as they are actively consulted and involved throughout the development process. The idea behind his adoption is to create holistic and sustainable solutions to the challenges faced by village folks, helping children and families become economically empowered.
The actor is keen to expand the model in other villages once these villages become self sustainable.
