Jana Sena leader Pawan Kalyan, while saying that he has lost faith in the TDP government in ensuring special category status for Andhra Pradesh, was non-committal about taking a stance on extending or withdrawing support to the NDA combine in 2019.
“It’s not the time for politics. I am here to say that I stand with the people of Andhra Pradesh. I am talking about their rights. The former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh made certain specific promises to the people of AP. But the successor government has failed in fulfilling them,” Power Star said.
He proposed a Joint Action Committee to fight for SCS. “We should take inspiration from the Telangana movement. All parties worked on one single platform, setting aside their differences. I invite the likes of Undavalli Arun Kumar garu, Jayaprakash Narayan garu and other experts,” the JS leader said.
Strikingly, the ‘Agnyaathavaasi’ actor said that he is now sorry that Jana Sena didn’t contest in 2014. “We would have been a stronger force,” he said.
