Film actor Pawan Kalyan, who endorsed Narendra Modi’s prime ministerial candidature, will now canvass for the saffron party at Kolar, Gulbarga and Raichur in Karnataka on Tuesday.
The decision was arrived at after the Jana Sena Party chief met Modi’s representatives from Delhi, Telangana BJP president Kishan Reddy and Seemandhra BJP leaders at his office here on Monday.
According to a press release, the actor agreed to campaign for the BJP after he had sought a promise from them that BJP would ensure justice to all people cutting across religions and regions. The interaction which lasted for one-and-a-half hours raised important issues relating to religion and region.
By a special aircraft from Begumpet, the actor will reach Raichur, where he will address his first meeting at 9 am in support of local BJP Lok Sabha candidate Sivanna Goud Nayak. Then, at 12 noon, he will address a public rally to drum up support for Kolar candidate Narayana Swami.
Later, depending on time available, the actor will participate in a public rally at 3.30 pm at Gulbarga in support of Revu Nayak Belangi. All the three are reserved constituencies.
