TDP silent on Pawan Kalyan’s JAC plans
TDP leaders are reluctant to comment on their alliance partner and Jana Sena Party (JSP) chief Pawan Kalyan’s proposal of forming a joint action committee (JAC) to demand justice to Andhra Pradesh.
Amaravati: TDP leaders are reluctant to comment on their alliance partner and Jana Sena Party (JSP) chief Pawan Kalyan’s proposal of forming a joint action committee (JAC) to demand justice to Andhra Pradesh.
Speaking to The Hans India, Deputy Chief Minister and home minister N Chinarajappa said the proposal would not be possible even if all the political parties agree to come together under one umbrella. “Personally, I won't welcome the proposal. But, our leadership has to discuss the proposal made by Pawan Kalyan,” he said.
Telugu Desam Party state official spokesperson Gottipati Ramakrishna said they were not in a position to respond or comment on Pawan’s proposal at present.
“We are concentrating only on how to get assurances from the Union government. It is the one and only agenda we have now. We will not talk about ‘other issues’ and not comment on Pavan’s proposal,” he said.
However, Deputy Chief Minister Chinarajappa said, “We have no objection to work with Pawan but he was proposing two other party leaders (Loaksatta chief Jayaprakash Narayan and Congress leader Vundavalli Arun Kumar). There is no clarity on who will join the JSP. We will respond after that”.
Responding to the criticism of Pawan against Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu relating to the issues of Special Category Status and special package, Chinarajappa said that Pawan was criticising the Chief Minister only to develop Jana Sena in Andhra Pradesh.
The Deputy CM flayed Pawan Kalyan for stating that he no longer has faith in Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. “There is no fact in the criticism of Pawan Kalyan against the state government. The Chief Minister is striving for the development of AP. If the Centre gives more funds, the state will be developed on fast track,” he said.
