Cameraman Rambabu who portrayed KCR as drunkard is of all praise for him today. Strange are the ways of politicians. Bitter critics K Chandrasekhar Rao and Pawan Kalyan met on Monday at Pragathi Bhavan, chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s camp office at Begumpet. While it was described by the CMO as a courtesy call made by the Jana Sena Party (JSP) leader to wish him on new year’s day, the meeting has raised eye brows for many reasons.
There never was any love lost between KCR and PK. In the past, Chandrasekhar Rao had in his characteristic style sought to know who Pawan Kalyan was. “I don’t watch films, so I do not know him,” KCR had said wryly at a public meeting before the 2014 elections. Pawan Kalyan on his part was critical about the bifurcation of the state – being careful not to oppose it but opposing the way the bifurcation was done.
When he had launched his Jana Sena Party before the 2014 elections, Pawan Kalyan bitterly criticized not only KCR but also his daughter Kavitha Kalvakuntla.
Pawan Kalyan had supported the TDP-BJP combine during the 2014 elections, throwing in his lot with N Chandrababu Naidu of the TDP and Narendra Modi. After bifurcation, he raised many issues pertaining to AP, including taking up an agitation for a special package for AP from the center for its development.
