Politics has the potential to turn even the thickest friends as bitter foes. Joining the list is Pawan Kalyan and Ali.
Speaking at a recent meeting, Pawan said, “I had supported Ali in every way and stood by him during hard times. I even gave an MP ticket to a candidate Ali had recommended. But my friend left me and joined the YSRCP.
Is this what friendship is? Ali, the person whom I loved so much, has not trusted me. He doesn’t have faith in my victory. The YSRCP will use him today and leave him tomorrow. I have stopped trusting people after Ali’s betrayal.”
Reacting to this, Ali said, “In what way have you helped me Pawan sir? Did you offer any financial help? Or did you provide with me opportunities when nobody would take me?
I was in a good position before you entered the industry and I haven’t taken a single rupee from anyone. Your comments in Rajahmundry have hurt me. And, what is wrong in joining YSRCP? Have I committed a crime?”
