Konaseema violence: War of words between Pawan Kalyan and Roja
Pawan Kalyan, chief of the Jana Sena Party (JSP), has claimed that the arsonists in Amalapuram were operating at the behest of some YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) leaders. He stated that there will be no progress in the state as long as the caste factor is prevalent. He has also claimed that the opposition YSRCP was involved in the Tuni incident and tried to blame it on the then-TDP government.
In response, AP Tourism Minister RK Roja questioned why the then-TDP administration neglected to prosecute the perpetrators in the Tuni tragedy. She has alleged that Pawan Kalyan took the alleged package from TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu and reading out his script.
