Pawan Kalyan Supports Agitation On Dharna Chowk
Hyderabad: The actor- turned-politician Pawan Kalyan tried to pacify the controversy he sparked over the appointment of TTD EO. Addressing the media on Thursday at Jana Sena party office, Pawan said that he is not against North India.
“I give a lot of importance to the Hindi language. There is a Hindi song in my film Khushi. But, I only said that South Indians too should be given opportunities on par with North Indians. I’m not against the appointment of Anil Singhal. When I met Modi in Ahmedabad I told him about the issues. I took the issue of discrimination against South Indians to Modi’s notice, he explained.”
People who want the country to be united must raise their voice on issues, but it should not affect the integrity of the country, he said.
Everyone has a right to protest in a democracy. And democracy gave the right to raise the voice when justice is not done, he said. Dharna Chowk at Indira Park is the dais for raising the voice against problems faced by citizens, he observed.
Announcing Jana Sena support to the agitation for Dharna Chowk, he said it’s not fair to stop peaceful protests.
Condemning the arrest of farmers who are protesting for support price, he said that he is not against any party. “I will be on people’s side,” he said.
