Vijay went on to narrate an example to denote that eligible people should vote to decide a leader for the country. “When you are getting on a plane to o to Bombay, Would we all decide whom to be the pilot of the plane ?? Would the 300 people who are going to travel decide the pilot of the plane ?? No, we let an efficient agencies like the airlines to decide the best person possible to fly a plane.” Vijay said.

During his explanation, “Why we are having money swing a vote, why we are having cheap liquors to swing a vote. It is ridiculous. I am not even saying that rich people should vote. I want the middle class people who are educated and who wouldn’t get swung by little money to vote. I don’t even think that everyone should be allowed to vote because they don’t even know whom they are voting an why they are voting. I won’t stand in an election where people voting for money and liquors.” Vijay Devarakonda said.
Further Vijay said that he would rather be a dictator than standing in an election. “I think that’s the way to go. Just shut up, I am having good intention, you don’t know what’s good for you maybe but stick to this for 5 or 10 years” the actor depicted how he would act when he becomes a dictator. “But you have to have a good guy as the dictator” he added. When Anupama Chopra interrupted and said that he is asking for a benevolent and wonderful person as a dictator, Vijay responds with a laugh and says “Basically me”
