VIJAYAWADA: During a live debate organized by a TV Channel, BJP Leaders attacked Hero Shivaji for criticizing Centre over failure in implementation of the poll promises. The Actor-turned-Politician reacted seriously on the manner in which BJP Leaders were trying to suppress people like him.
Shivaji: 'Joined BJP in 2014 just because it made many promises to the people of AP. I had campaigned for BJP by visiting every street like a dog. Now, They attack Me if I demand Centre to fulfill the poll promises. These Leaders who are attacking Me aren't even in BJP when I served the National Party. They are now making a scene for personal gains. Let them attack...may be my death will unite all the Telugus. If I am killed, Hundred Shivaji's will be born & People's anger will ruin BJP completely!,' he declared.
The Actor demanded BJP Leaders to make their stand clear on Special Category Status. He accused BJP Leaders of adopting the strategy of causing bodily harm for shutting the mouths of critics. 'Is this BJP? If capable, BJP Leaders need to take their party stand into people bravely or else they need to accept the injustice being done by them,' challenges Shivaji.
