Though Pawan supports BJP, he was going to campaign in favour of JP in Malkajgiri but he had to change his mind to stick with alliance ethics. After Pawan declared that he won’t be able to campaign for Loksatta, JP took to Twitter and thanked Pawan for trying and lashed out the parties and people who pulled back Pawan from campaigning for JP. Below, read what JP has to say about Pawan.

“Pawan Kalyan has done for me what even my brother would hesitate to do. He has sacrificed his own personal ambition to contest Malkajgiri. My heartfelt thanks to Pawan Kalyan for all the invaluable support . His large hardheartedness and generosity are praiseworthy.

I heard the news this afternoon that he loves and respects me but cannot campaign for us due to immense political pressures & compulsions. Pawan wanted to help forge some genuine change in politics for Telugu people and wanted to show his solidarity by campaigning with us. My heart goes out to this young man for the immense pressure on him to break his commitment in fighting the Dharma Yuddham with us.

It does not take a genius to understand that Loksatta is now a big threat and traditional parties are scared. Politics needs money and needs it for legitimate purposes. But for some, politics has become all about money and only about money. Dharma is with us.

This is an all out war between politics of Dharma and Dhana and I know we are winning. We need to change the DNA of politics. People will see the genuine change they seek. Let’s create history in Malkajgiri.”
