Amaravati: Actor-turned-politician and Jana Sena Chief Pawan Kalyan slammed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu calling him a opportunistic politician. Addressing a meeting organised on the occasion of former minister Ravela Kishore Babu's joining the party, he said Chandrababu encouraged rampant corruption, attacks on women, attacks on government officials by the MLAs across the State.
Pointing out that Chandrababu left the NDA after praising the BJP leaders and being felicitated by them, Pawan Kalyan said the State's administration was not under Chandrababu's control. "How can Chandrababu fulfil the Vision 2050? After being the Leader of Opposition for ten years, he has now switched his loyalties to the Congress," he observed.
Pawan Kalyan took a dig at the TDP leaders, asking them to learn from Ravela Kishore Babu's practice of resigning from the MLA post before switching parties. He predicted Ravela's win in 2019 elections and that he would be made a minister.
Ravela Kishore Babu, who switched over to the Jana Sena after quitiing the TDP, spoke to the media and said, in the TDP government even the Dalits and tribals get positions that are irrelevant. The Dalits and are always insulted in TDP.
Other leaders who attended the meeting were Nadendla Manohar Rao, Pasupuleti Balaraju among others.
