Actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan said that he was told that there will be a war just before the Lok Sabha elections, two years ago. Jana Sena Party president said that one can imagine the political situation prevailing in the country under the BJP rule, using war mongering just to benefit in elections.
Speaking at a public meeting in Kadapa, on Thursday Janasena Chief said that BJP cannot claim rights over patriotism but didn’t say whether any BJP leader in Delhi told him about the possibility of war before elections, to polarise votes in favour of that national party.
“Patriotism and national integrity are not the copyright of the BJP. We all are ten times more patriotic than them", said adding that Muslims in India don't need to prove their patriotism. "Muslims have a place in our hearts. We made Azharuddin the cricket captain and Abdul Kalam the President of India. We live in harmony", he said. Pawan also opposed treating Muslims as a vote bank.
