Not long ago, firebrand actress and YSR Congress party MLA R K Roja used to attack power star Pawan Kalyan and her brother megastar Chiranjeevi.At one stage, Roja had even questioned the mega brothers on their alleged sexual exploitation of women.
And with regard to Pawan, the actress-MLA used to fire all cylinders for being a puppet in the hands of TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu.But now that Pawan Kalyan launched a war against the TDP, particularly targeting Naidu and his son Nara Lokesh, besides media channels supporting the TDP, Roja has come to his defence.
On Sunday, she went hammer and tongs against the media houses for targeting Pawan Kalyan, just because he exposed the conspiracy of the TDP to defame him using a woman.Roja said the media supporting the TDP had dragged Pawan Kalyan’s family on to the road in the casting couch issue and even got his mother abused.
“These channels, their CEOs, anchors and those who are taking part in the debates are acting as slaves of the TDP,” she alleged.While this has added fuel to the fire as journalists have been up in arms against Pawan Kalyan for attributing motives to them, it has given an opportunity to the TDP that the Jana Sena Party has a secret understanding with the YSRC and both are under the control of the BJP.
So, an internal matter of a film industry is snowballing into a political battle between the TDP and its political rivals with media as weapon!
