Modi should commit suicide hearing my curse: Balakrishna

Actor and Hindupur sitting MLA Nandamuri Balakrishna, who is contesting from the Assembly constituency, is back in the news for the third time in the past 10 days for his abusive outbursts during his election campaign.

On Friday, he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should have committed suicide by drowning himself after the abuses he was receiving from Mr. Balakrishna. While campaigning in the Srikantapuram SC Colony, he danced to the tunes of the party election songs and accused Mr. Modi of not doing anything for the State. "If Modi were sensible he should have reacted to the choicest abuses being hurled at him," said Mr. Balakrishna.

At another election campaign on Wednesday night, he abused one of his supporters in Hindupur town for saying that he would get a majority of between 60,000 and 70,000 votes. In his inimitable style, he asked for the fan’s name and in an abusive tone told him that he would get majority in lakhs and not in thousands.

These videos with clear audio and video have gone viral on YouTube and other social media channels.
