Vijayawada, Sept 28: Controversial MLA from Denduluru in West Godavari district, Chintamaneni Prabhakar has challenged Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan to an open debate on the cases he has against him.
On Wednesday, Pawan Kalyan had hurled Prabhakar in his constituency Denduluru, accusing him of emerging as a force above the Constitution.
However, Prabhakar on Thursday questioned why Pawan Kalyan was not talking about the Rafale deal, Special Category Status and corruption cases against YSRCP chief Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy instead of targeting him.
He said that the Jana Sena chief was talking without proper knowledge and was reciting whatever script he was given by his aides. He also dared Pawan Kalyan to contest against him from the Denduluru constituency in the upcoming elections.
Prabhakar asked him to prove with whom he had behaved in a bossy manner. Also, he asked Pawan Kalyan if he could front such questions to Jagan Mohan Reddy in Pulivendula.
Telugu Desam MLA Bonda Uma Maheswar Rao too found fault with Pawan Kalyan for his comments on Prabhakar. Maheswar Rao asked why Pawan Kalyan did not see Mr Prabhakar in such a light when his party Jana Sena supported the TDP in the last elections.
