For a change, actor-turned-politician and Jana Sena Party founder-president Pawan Kalyan came in support of YSR Congress party president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy.
On Wednesday, Pawan issued a statement supporting the decision of Jagan to demolish Praja Vedika, the massive conference hall constructed adjacent to the residence of Telugu Desam Party president and leader of opposition N Chandrababu Naidu on the banks of Krishna river at Vundavalli in Amaravati.
“It is a correct decision. If the Praja Vedika is an unauthorised and illegal construction, it has to be demolished. The buildings which had been constructed in violation of rules and environmental norms should be removed,” he said.
Pawan, however, said the government should demolish all the illegal constructions on the banks of Krishna river that came up without permission.
“Only then, people will have faith on the government,” he said.
Meanwhile, CPI (M) leader B V Raghavulu also demanded that all the illegal constructions on the banks of Krishna river should be razed to the ground immediately.
“Jagan cannot remain content with the demolition of Praja Vedika. If he does not take similar action against the other illegal constructions, his sincerity and integrity will be questioned,” he said.
