TIRUPATI: If the Centre does not honour its commitment and accord the special category status, people would not hesitate to come on to the roads and fight for the cause, declared Janasena party president and actor Pawan Kalyan. He dared the Parliament members from Andhra Pradesh to fight together for their people and force the Centre to keep its promises as per the AP Reorganisation Act.
Making a strong pitch for the special category status during his maiden public meeting at Indira Maidan in Tirupati after the party's launch more than two years ago, the actor-turned-politician wanted to give clarity over three issues - his party's future, the TDP rule and the special category status for AP. The party would organise a massive meeting at Kakinada on September 9, followed by the district-wise meetings. In the second phase, the Janasena party plans to build pressure on the elected representatives.
Pawan said that his personal relation with Prime Minister Narendra Modi was of no use unless the Central government sanctions special category status to Andhra Pradesh. "What is the use of 'Make In India' initiative for us, if the Centre is against giving us the special category status?" he questioned. He found no difference between the elected representatives of Congress and BJP, and wanted the MPs of all political parties to join hands for the people's cause.
Meanwhile, Pawan Kalyan stated that he would continue to do films for livelihood but would also continue his constructive politics for the development of Andhra Pradesh.
