A while ago, Megastar Chiranjeevi took to Twitter to appreciate Lakshmi Bhupala, the dialogue writer of 'GodFather'. While doing so, the actor put out a monologue from the movie in the form of text.

In the Telugu-language post, which quotes the monologue in verbatim, it is mentioned that Brahma (Chiranjeevi) warns corrupt politicians that they are done. The lines are about how the ruling class is abusing power to award contracts to their cronies to enrich themselves at the cost of the State.

Road contracts, sand contracts, road contracts, water contracts, and liquor contracts are lashed out at by Brahma, who tells the corrupt that he is going to teach them a lesson. "Anyone who wants to commit wrongdoing should only have dread in them from now onwards. Otherwise, they will vanish into thin air," Chiru's character says.

There is a view that the line is an indirect dig at the state of affairs in Andhra Pradesh, a State where government contracts are said to be deeply tainted by rent-seeking behaviour.
