Jana Sena chief K Pawan Kalyan has expressed his disapproval of the arrest of TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu, suggesting that his arrest during the G20 conference in New Delhi was a deliberate move to garner national attention.
Addressing a gathering at his party office in Mangalagiri on Sunday night, he argued, “Arrests pertaining to the YS Vivekananda Reddy case have been conspicuously absent, despite the presence of compelling evidence. In contrast, arrests of political leaders have been carried out without proper evidence.”
He raised serious concerns, alleging that 2,000 hired goondas were sent to disrupt his Varahi Vijaya Yatra gathering held in Amalapuram. Pawan Kalyan asserted that these 2,000 hired individuals had been brought in from the Rayalaseema district and sent to infiltrate his meeting in Amalapuram.
According to Pawan Kalyan, “The hired individuals were reportedly tasked with causing disturbances and even harming attendees, with a target of at least 50 casualties. Central agencies, upon receiving this information, intervened and issued warnings against engaging in such activities. Subsequently, the alleged hired individuals were recalled, although Pawan Kalyan refrained from naming the YSRCP.”
He went on to claim that these hired individuals had previously disrupted meetings in Tanuku and Bhimavaram. Pawan Kalyan vocally condemned these alleged acts, asserting that, “As long as my Varahi Vijaya Yatra continued, these hired criminals persisted in their disruptive activities, with YSRCP leaders being accused of orchestrating these heinous acts.”
Highlighting the obstacles he faced during his recent travels, Pawan Kalyan stated, “I was denied permission for my chartered flight to land at Gannavaram airport. When I attempted to reach Vijayawada by road, I encountered obstructions, eventually opting to confine myself to a hotel room. These are undoubtedly challenging times for the state.”
In response to these incidents, Pawan Kalyan expressed his intent to communicate with the Central government regarding the conduct of Jagan Mohan Reddy, acknowledging that the Central government might be limited in its actions, apart from extending financial support to the state government.
Pawan Kalyan concluded by affirming his commitment to stand in solidarity with Chandrababu Naidu and his determination to prevent the splitting of opposition votes. He called upon the public to remain vigilant and united in the face of these circumstances.
