Is Pawan Kalyan not the virtuous politician that he claims to be? The latest sting operation by a popular Telugu news channel casts dark clouds on Pawan's honesty and transparency in politics.
Going by a sting operation carried out by Mahaa news channel, Pawan met with around 150 powerful big shots hailing from the Kapu community last night. The secret meeting was held at a star hotel in Hyderabad. What's shocking is that each guest had 'contributed' 10 lakhs as an entry fee.
The shocking footage aired by Mahaa News revealed Pawan Kalyan's auditor Ratnam collecting cash, cheques and personal info from all the attendees. Most of the guests are influential people with an industrialist backdrop. Some of them even flew down from Singapore and Malaysia to meet Pawan Kalyan.
Apparently, Pawan enquired all the guess whether they can 'support' his party in the wake of the impending general elections. Whether there is any quid pro understanding made is yet unclear. Needless to say that Pawan, who claims to be a man of no caste prejudice, meeting the Kapu honchos made everyone raise fingers at his morality.
