Addressing a press conference here on Thursday, he said two political parties, including a fledgling outfit, will be working with that national party. However, the actor did not disclose the names of any of the political parties he had mentioned

“A year ago, Kalyanji, who works for a front organisation of the national party in question, had explained to me about Operation Dravida. The target of that party is to bring the entire South India under its grip by 2019,” he said. Sivaji said the code name for the operation in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana was ‘Operation Garuda’ while it was ‘Operation Ravana’ in Tamil Nadu and Kerala and ‘Operation Kumara’ in Karnataka.

In a 20-minute video released to the media, Sivaji explained how the national party, with the help of a regional party, was targeting the political power in various South Indian States. The national party was also planning to target individuals taking into consideration the positions they were holding.

“As per the plan, a drama would be acted out according to which an agitation would be taken up in Andhra Pradesh in 2018 by a person and the Central government would concede his demands,  fearing unrest due to indefinite fast by that person. The operation may no longer be a possibility due to the changed circumstances. However, the objective of the national party, that is, to grab  power in 2019, will remain unchanged,” the actor explained.

The actor said he had no ulterior motives in disclosing the information to the public. “As a citizen of the state, I felt duty-bound to share this since I will impact the future of the State.  If you ask me how should I be trusted, I don’t have an answer. It’s up to you,” he said

Stating that he had come to know from reliable sources that the notice on no-confidence motion would be admitted and the ruling coalition would make six people, who were in proficient in English and Telugu, to explain what the government had done and after putting it for voting, the Parliament would be adjourned sine die.
