VIJAYAWADA: In a strong retort over YSR Congress leaders’ criticism about his poll campaign vehicle being olive green in colour, Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan asked the ruling party whether he should stop breathing next.
In a series of tweets on Friday, the Jana Sena president listed out the kind of restrictions imposed on him by YSR Congress government. He said it stopped his films, did not allow him to come out of his vehicle during his Visakhapatnam visit, confined him to his hotel room, denied him permission to step out for fresh air, and even forced him to leave the city.
Pavan Kalyan pointed out that when he was planning to visit Ippatam village to console families whose houses had been demolished, his car was not allowed to move out of his party office in Mangalagiri, forcing him to walk for reaching the village.
The power star said now the colour of his poll campaign vehicle “Varahi” has become an issue. He went on to ask whether he will be allowed to wear an olive green shirt at least and posted a picture of the shirt. The JS chief then asked whether he should stop breathing next.
In another tweet, Pawan Kalyan posted a picture of trees. He asked YSR Congress leaders which green variant from the picture was acceptable to them.
The popular actor posted a picture of the famous TV advertisement “Neighbour’s Envy, Owner’s Pride.” He juxtaposed it with a Bible verse from Proverbs 14:30, “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” Pawan Kalyan said this quote had often been referred to in school by his class teacher when students felt jealous and tried to damage things belonging to other kids.
“With sheer jealousy, (the) YSRC bone structure is getting rotten day by day,” Pawan Kalyan remarked. He also tweeted an advice that YSR Congress government focus more on development of AP, as companies involved in manufacturing cars to making underwear are moving to neighbouring states, unable to bear the demand for bribes and free shares.
Meanwhile, in response to Pawan Kalyan painting his new campaign vehicle “Varahi” in olive green, AP’s additional transport commissioner S. Prasada Rao made it clear that as per Motor Vehicle Act, no civilian vehicle can be painted olive green.
