Vijayawada: YSRCP Giddalur MLA Anna Rambabu has accused actor-politician Pawan Kalyan of politicizing the suicide of Jana Sena leader Bandla Vengaiaha Naidu.
Rambabu condemned the remarks made by Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan in which he held him responsible for the suicide of Jana Sena activist.
He asked why Pawan Kalyan is harping on conspiracy theories when Vengaiah's family members are repeatedly saying that he did not commit suicide because of the blasphemy. If Pawan Kalyan does not trust the family, they can go for narco tests, he said.
"It was irresponsible of Pawan Kalyan to criticize me without knowing what was going on in the field," he said.
Rambabu questioned Pawan Kalyan why he didn't condemn the atrocities during Chandrababu's reign. He asked why Pawan Kalyan remained silent when Rishiteshwari committed suicide at Nagarjuna University.
"Why did he remain silent when Chandrababu illegally poached 23 YSRCP MLAs? Pawan Kalyan is acting as the front man of Chandrababu Naidu," he said.
Rambabu challenged Pawan Kalyan to contest polls from Giddalur. "I will surrender in court voluntarily if anyone proves my involvement in Vengaiah's suicide. In case Pawan Kalyan loses, he should shut down his party," he said.
