Actor-politician and Jana Sena party chief Pawan Kalyan on Thursday called Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu, a 'man with no values'.
Speaking at a programme in Visakhapatnam, Pawan claimed that it was the TDP, which approached him ahead of the 2014 elections in the state and asked him to support them.
āBefore the 2014 elections, I had a one-to-one meeting with Mr. Naidu. During the course of my interaction, I had casually broached the topic of fielding a few MPs and MLAs. Mr. Naidu then advised me to just support him and leave other issues to him. I believed and agreed to support him. But the moment I walked out, he told the media that I wanted a share in the seats. It was a one-to-one meeting. How did the media got to know of what transpired had Naidu not leaked it? That is why I say that Naidu is a man without values," The Hindu quoted Pawan Kalyan as saying.
Speaking at the event after inducting some prominent personalities into the party, Pawan Kalyan told the gathering, "JSP has no caste, religion or community feeling and we will encourage anyone sincerely works for the welfare of the public. With the love, affection, hard work of Jana sainiks, and the blessings of the public JSP will definitely come into power in the coming 2019 elections."
The actor-politician is presently touring the state as part of his 'Praja Porata Yatra'.
Dubbed the Jana Sena Porata Yatra, the tour will see a mix of walkathons (padayatra), public meetings and road shows.
Pawan Kalyan said that the aim of this yatra is to highlight the issue of Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh and also to highlight the several promises made by the Centre during the stateās bifurcation.
The Jana Sena party chief toured Srikakulam district for several days, before entering Vizianagaram district. He is presently in Visakhapatnam district.
