Celebrating his 57th birthday on Wednesday, actor-turnedpolitician and Rajya Sabha member K Chiranjeevi did not hide his desire to become the chief minister of the state.

Addressing mediapersons at Delhi, he said that he could render more service to people if was in a higher position in public life.

Hence, he was trying to make use of every opportunity, which came his way, to reach higher positions. He made it clear that he had not found any fault with people’s wishes to see him occupying the chief minister’s chair.

In fact, it showed the people’s affection for him.

Chiranjeevi’s latest remarks on the “chief minister’s post” assumed significance as his close aides and ministers C Ramachandraiah and Ganta Srinivasa Rao have been garnering media attention with their predictions on Chiranjeevi becoming the chief minister. However, Chiranjeevi made it clear that there would not be a change of guard in the state till 2014, apparently in a bid not to hurt Kiran Kumar Reddy.

Turning to other issues, the Rajya Sabha member said the decision on the resignation of minister Dharmana Prasada Rao completely rested with the chief minister.

It was not appropriate for anybody to find fault with the chief minister for delaying the decision, he said.

Asked when Chiranjeevi’s 150th flick would go to sets, the megastar replied that he too was eager to don greasepaint, but he was unable to find a suitable script for his stature.

He would act in his 150th film only if he found a suitable script to give a good message to society, he said.
