Perhaps for the first time, power star and Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan made some critical comments against Telugu Desam Party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, albeit in a mild manner.
Speaking to media while releasing the report of the joint fact-finding committee on the Central assistance to the state, Pawan said he had supported Chandrababu Naidu in 2014 elections because he was an experienced politician.
“But now, I feel he is a confused man. He does not know what exactly he wants from the Centre. When I said at the Tirupati meeting that the Centre was trying to fool us by offering rotten laddus, he said he would adjust with the same.
Now, the Centre has not given even the stale laddus. And now, Naidu is demanding the special status. This is confusing to the people. If the chief minister himself is a confused man, how can he do justice to the state?” Pawan asked.
The Jana Sena Party chief found fault with the Naidu government for failing to bring pressure on the Centre to do justice to the state in the last four years.
“In the fifth year, he says he would fight with the Centre. How can people believe him?” he said.
Pawan said he was answerable to the people since he was facing criticism for being a supporter of the TDP.
“Otherwise, people will not believe me also,” he said.
