Sai Kumar's response to Balakrishna's comments

Popular actor and voice artiste Sai Kumar said that it was not right for Hindupuramu MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna to launch a personal attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Sai Kumar said he was personally wiling to fall the Prime Minister’s feet in order to get special category status for Andhra Pradesh. Sai Kumar is set to contest in the upcoming Karnataka elections from Bagepalli in Chikballapur district on a BJP ticket.

He filed the nomination papers on Tuesday, after visiting the Kadiri Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swami temple in Anantapuram. Sai Kumar said that his mother originally hailed from Bagepalli. He pointed out that while Bagepalli and Bengaluru were not too far apart, the difference in the development of the two places was incomparable. He said that these elections were an attempt for him to work towards developing Bagepalli. Sai Kumar had previously contested with a BJP ticket and lost an election. He is trying his luck yet again in the upcoming elections.
