Pawan Kalyan was honoured with IEBF Global Excellence Award by Indo-European Business Forum at the House of Lords in Westminister road on November 17th. He even received a rousing reception from fans when he landed in Hyderabad.
Unexpectedly, Criticism has been coming Pawan Kalyan's way for accepting this particular award. IEBF Awards were presented annually in the categories like Business, Sports, Social & Community Service, Public Health, Education, Silk & Development. This isn't the first time a Telugu Personality bagged IEBF Award. In 2015, Former AP Chief Secretary IYR Krishna Rao received the honour. He was presented the award for successfully bringing the Buddha Status back from British Museum after Amaravati was picked up as capital. Whereas, Few Pawan Fans have been publicizing as if Powerstar is the first Telugu Man to bag IEBF Award.
On the other hand, The sanctity of the award is being questioned. Vijay Goel, the founder of IEBF, is rumoured to be maintaining close relations with AP CM Chandrababu Naidu. He even acts as the unofficial representative of AP Government in London. Even a member of this organization hails from Andhra Pradesh. So, Doubts have been raised over the award offered to Pawan Kalyan.
