Jana Senas election agenda is to dethrone YSRCP: Pawan Kalyan

Visakhapatnam: Jana Sena party's upcoming election agenda is to dethrone the YSRCP from Andhra Pradesh. Jana Sena president Pawan Kalyan held a press meet in Mangalagiri on Monday after he was forced to leave Vizag after the police issued a notice asking him not to organise rallies/meetings in Vizag. Pawan Kalyan was in Visakhapatnam for the three-day Uttrandhra tour.

Pawan Kalyan said his party is ready to fight against the ruling party. "Criminals who turned into lawmakers do not bother about rules and regulations. I don't want to be ruled by a criminal. Jana Sena's agenda is to remove criminalisation. We are ready for any fight," he said.

He will be staying in Mangalagiri for another few days and is to approach the High Court regarding the arrests of his supporters.

"Shame on the YSRCP government who disturbed tourists in the hotel where I was staying. At night, the police were checking the rooms of tourists staying in the hotel, in search of Jana Sena supporters," alleged Pawan Kalyan. He said the Jana Sena party's motto is to fight against YSRCP and bring an end to criminal politics.

Addressing the media, the Jana Sena chief said, "The police alleged that around 500 supporters of YSRCP leaders were attacked on 15 October at 3.30 p.m, but I reached Vizag airport at 4.45 p.m. I was issued a notice saying no to any rallies/meetings/use of drones." He added, "Before arriving in Vizag, I thought I'd visit Rushikonda and see the illegal development taken up by the YSRCP government. Within hours, a notice was issued not to use drones."

Pawan Kalyan criticised the YSRCP governing saying this was a provoking strategy to highlight the three capital issues. "We decided to hold our Jana Vani programme three months back. How can the YSRCP organise Visakha Garjana on the same day? Instead of working on development, they started doing protests," he added.

"A 14-member committee was formed to ask permission for Jana Vani. They were arrested and criminal cases filed against them. Also, 117 Jana Sena supporters were taken into custody," the Jana Sena chief said. Slamming the ruling party, he said except for YSRCP, cases have been booked illegally against several political parties, including Jana Sena, TDP, or BJP.

Speaking about the police department, Pawan Kalyan said, "An IPS cadre police officer tried to get into a fight with me, giving me warnings on my way from the airport. I asked him, 'Am I doing illegal things? Am I not within my constitutional rights?' He asked me to stop my vehicle. They just tried to provoke me."
