AP CM Chandrababu restricts TDP leaders from unwarranted comments on Pawan Kalyan
  • Recently TDP senior leaders Ashok Gajapathi Raju and Minister Peethani commented on Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan
  • Pawan responded to this with satirical tweets yesterday
  • Chandrababu ordered TDP leaders not to make unwarranted remarks

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu ordered TDP (Telugu Desam Party) leaders not to make any unwarranted comments on Jana Sena supremo Pawan Kalyan.

Recently, Union Aviation Minister, Ashok Gajapathi Raju, commented that he doesn’t know who Pawan is and later TDP Minister Peethani Satyanaranayana Rao stated that Jana Sena had not been set up and he would comment when Pawan sets up the party.

This irked Pawan who on his tweet yesterday said that he was happy since Ashok doesn’t know him while Peethani doesn’t know about him. The war of words between TDP and Pawan seem to have been going out of tune and so Chandrababu intervened and questioned about the circumstances leading to comments on Pawan.

Then TDP chief Chandrababu ordered his men not to speak out of turn and restricted them on speaking about sensitive issues. He ordered his party people to keep mum on issues not related to party governance.  

Pawan supported TDP in 2014 elections but recently announced his party’s intention to contest in 2019 elections, which seems to be the root cause of the differences between the two parties.
