Kovvuru: Andhra Pradesh IT minister Nara Lokesh today accused Janasena president Pawan Kalyan of taking a U-turn after the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) pulled out of the alliance with BJP. I have respect for the actor-politician, but he is a U-turn leader, Lokesh said.

Addressing the media while on a tour to Kovvuru constituency in West Godavari district, the IT minister recalled that Pawan Kalyan was full of praise for the governance of Chandrababu Naidu. Until the TDP was part of NDA, the Janasena leader said Chandrababu was leading the State to growth.

"I have asked Pawan Kalyan to prove his allegations. But, he failed to do it time and again," he added.

Lokesh further said that he became the IT minister by the grace of God and by the blessings of people. However, it's public knowledge that it was due to the fact that Lokesh was Chandrababu's son that he was made the IT minister, despite not being elected to the Assembly.
