Babu Responds To Pawan's Comments

In yet another media conference following the horrific violence which took place in Tuni during the Kapu Aikya Garjana agitation yesterday, AP CM Nara Chandrababu Naidu responded to Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan's comments a while ago.

During his press meet this evening, Pawan questioned Babu government's failures in not deploying additional forces which could have averted the riots caused by thousands of protestors. In his response, Babu said Pawan could be right in his opinion and said that things would have gone totally out of control had he deployed additional forces.

Babu said that he employed limited policemen only to not invite criticism of obstructing the Kapu meeting and that he asked the police personnel to maintain restraint since their action could have sparked off an even bigger unrest which would have rattled off the harmony in the state.

Babu also gave a fitting counter to the YSRCP president YS Jagan's allegations asking him why his late father YS Rajasekhara Reddy didn't include Kapus in BCs even though he mentioned it in his election manifesto.

Venturing out a full throttle attack on Jagan, Babu said evil forces have been trying hard to project the government as anti Kapu and that antisocial elements have been spreading rumors that Kapus will attack other communities. Babu said that Kapus will never resort to such violence and that only criminals have such a mindset and that he will not spare any criminal involved in the incident.
