He tweeted “Pawan Kalyan Garu, I’m claiming credit where it is due by saying that only TDP has waged battles with BJP to achieve justice while the Opp is paying lip service. Why can’t they utter one word against Modi Ji? Why so scared? Why have they turned into puppets reading out scripts?. And to refamiliarize you with history, when Hudhud struck Vizag, @NCBN lived out of a bus to make sure essential services are revived and people are safe and then transformed Vizag into one of the cleanest, greenest cities in the Country. Vizagites will never forget this, ever!. North Andhra has become a hub of activity with thousands of jobs being created by some big ticket companies in Vizag. Why are you oblivious to so much development? I really hope that this politics of rhetoric does not intimidate the companies to rethink about investing in Vizag.” (sic).
The Janasena Party organized a protest march on the Visakhapatnam Beach Road where Pawan Kalyan criticised the TDP government.
