Denduluru MLA and the Government Whip Chintamaneni Prabhakar on Thursday dared Jana Sena president Pawan Kalyan to contest against him in Denduluru Assembly constituency in the ensuing elections. He reacted strongly to the allegations levelled by Pawan Kalyan in Denduluru on Thursday that 37 cases were booked against Prabhakar. Pawan Kalyan toured Denduluru Assembly constituencies and made serious charges against the MLA. The Denduluru MLA strongly condemned the harsh comments made by Pawan Kalyan over several criminal cases against him at various police stations. Prabhakar made it clear only three cases were pending against him.
He admitted that some cases were booked against him but were not proved. He asked whether Pawan Kalyan would quit politics if he was defeated in the elections. He observed that Pawan Kalyan being a state-level leader and having closely moved with leaders like Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu should not have resorted to baseless allegations against other leaders. Chintamaneni was at a loss why Pawan Kalyan was targeting him. He maintained that he was neither a land grabber nor a murderer. He claimed that he developed Denduluru Assembly constituency with Rs 1,300 crore funds.
