“ In Guntur for Swacchandhra program by @ncbn. Excited to be here and address the people,” Manchu Lakshmi has just posted on her facebook page..It may be recalled that Lakshmi Manchu, has bagged a rare honour. The government of India appointed the Manchu Lakshmi as the Brand Ambassador for Swachh Bharat’s Telangana chapter, PM Narendra Modi’s ambitious cleanliness campaign. She has expressed her happiness over this rare honor, Lakshmi said that she has already been participating in several social causes with inspiration from PM Narendra Modi. She further stated that this honor has made her more responsible and that she will strive hard to make Telangana dirt free and turn it into Swachh Telangana. The actress also thanked Modi for bestowing this special honor upon her and said that she feels lucky to be honored by the President of India.
Now, the big question is as to how Manchu Lakshmi is in Guntur? On the invitation of the AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, or on her own, she had been to Guntur? Being the Swachh Bharath Brand Ambassador for Telangana, has she got the moral right to participate in the programmes being organized by other State Governments? If she is attending on her personal level, there will not be any issues, according to a senior officer of Telangana Government. “But, if it is on invitation of the AP State Government, She has to inform the Government”, he added. However, another senior officer has stated that as such there is no protocol and the brand ambassadors need not necessarily inform the respective Governments about their official or non-official visits, to other States or other Countries. Known for her controversial tweets and postings, now Manchu Lakshmi has opened the gates for another such controversy.
