Jana Sena Party founder and actor Pawan Kalyan on Saturday tweeted that Members of Parliament should stand in the queues at banks, with people who were struggling to obtain new currency notes.

This comes a few days after he accused the Centre of its implementation of demonetisation.

In a series of tweets, he had said, "The government should have done some serious exercise before delegalizing the tender. It is evident from the current situation that government has not done enough exercise...and has no proper estimation before announcing the delegalization of currency. Government can not hide long time under the shade of maintaining secrecy,"(sic).

Earlier this month, Pawan announced that he would contest the Andhra Pradesh assembly elections in 2019.

Addressing a public meeting in Anatapur, Pawan said his party's first office would come up there.

The actor-politician had last month decided to register himself as a voter in Eluru town.

Pawan, who was a voter in Hyderabad, had asked his aides to take necessary steps to transfer his name to the voters' list in Eluru town in West Godavari district.

The actor had floated Jana Sena on the eve of 2014 elections but campaigned for the BJP-TDP alliance.

Since then, he has distanced himself from the ruling party, targeting them for denying special status to Andhra Pradesh.

Meanwhile, Pawan also paid his respects to former Cuban president Fidel Castro, who passed away on Saturday.
