Jana Sena president Pawan Kalyan tweeting periodically with the hashtag #APdemandsspecialstatus fired a salvo at the Rayapati Sambasiva Rao family accusing its members of not agitating for the SCS because they wanted the Polavaram contact. He faulted with the Rayapati family for dumping the rubble excavated from the Polavaram dam right canal on the ‘green fields of hard working farmers’. In another tweet, he alleged that the SCS had been forfeited for the Polavaram project contract. He also took objection to Union Minister Sujana Chowdary using derogatory language against youth.
Meanwhile, controversial film maker Ram Gopal Varma took potshots at Telugu film stars Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh Babu on Twitter on Republic Day.
He tweeted that ‘a true warrior instead of with a phone from a safe distance will be with a sword in the middle of the filed’. He posted a picture of the empty Ramakrishna Beach Road in Visakhapatnam with a police picket said it was the ‘war atmosphere of Iraq and was ‘shocking’ referring to the Jallikattu campaign. RGV wished the Telugus has the ‘same integrity and determination of Tamils’.
In another, he wondered why Mahesh Babu who was not into politics was so much bothered about Jallikattu. He said that he was shocked at Mahesh Babu being more bothered about the problems of the dubbing people (Tamils) than the survival problems of the actual people (Telugu) who made him a super star.
