Pawan Gives A Tit-For-Tat To Naidu
Actor-turned-Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan seems to have mastered the art of articulation in his politics.
There is no more tentativeness in his speeches and his political retorts have been laced with punch and aggression of late.
In his latest attack on Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, the power star virtually turned the tables on the former.
He said it was his biggest mistake in his life to support Naidu in 2014 assembly elections.
“I was of the view that Naidu, with his vast experience of nearly four decades, would be able to do justice to the state and develop it.
He sought my support to fight against corrupt parties. I believed him and supported him. But he belied all my hopes. Now I feel I am thoroughly cheated,” he said.
Pawan said had his party contested the 2014 elections, it would have won at least 5-10 seats, if not more.
“I would have got a chance to pull up the Naidu government and expose his corruption. Now, I regret for losing that opportunity,” he said.
It was a sort of tit-for-tat for Naidu. It may be mentioned that the TDP chief also made a similar comment on Bharatiya Janata Party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“I blindly believed Modi and hoped that he would extend all help to Andhra Pradesh which suffered a lot due to unscientific bifurcation. But he betrayed our faith. I was cheated by Modi,” Naidu said in a recent meeting.
So, if Modi has cheated Naidu, then Pawan feels Naidu has cheated him thoroughly!
