Refuting the BJP’s claim that Pawan Kalyan’s film benefit shows were refused permission Vakeel SaabThe YSRCP has said that there is no political motive behind this.
“It was carried out in accordance with the regulations and to verify the escalation of the ticket price,” said Minister of Information and Public Relations, Perni Venkataramaiah.
“There is no connection between the Tirupati Bypoll and the film, as films do not affect the election results in any way,” he told the Tirupati media on Friday.
Mr Venkataramaiah criticized the BJP leaders for stopping the benefit shows because Prime Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was afraid of Mr Pawan Kalyan.
The government refused permission as £ 150 worth of tickets were to be sold for £ 1,000 on behalf of charity shows. The AP Cinematography Act only allowed four shows a day as of 11 a.m., he said.
“Why are people going to vote for the BJP? Will they vote to put the Visakhapatnam steel mill up for sale, or fail to honor the bifurcation promises, or betray the state regarding special category status? “He asked.
Recalling Mr Pawan Kalyan’s criticism of the BJP leaders during the 2019 elections, the minister asked what prompted the two parties to bury their differences and why the BJP declared the JSP leader a CM candidate.
