Jana Sena Party founder and actor Pawan Kalyan on Saturday demanded a special package for the Rayalaseema region.

As part of his three-day visit to Anantapur district, Mr. Pawan Kalyan laid the foundation stone for the construction of the party office at the Gooty road in Anantapur town — the first such office in the State.

Later, addressing the gathering, the JSP chief said he was aware of the problems being faced by the people of the district and the Rayalaseema region in general and promised that he would take their issues to the notice of the Prime Minister and find solutions to them.

Saying he was touring the district to know the grassroots issues and problems of various sections including the farmers, the weavers and the unemployed youth, he said he would also chalk out an action plan to render justice after consultations with intellectuals and others.

“I am ready to take a delegation to New Delhi to demand a special package for the Rayalaseema region. I also came from an agricultural family. I know the problems of the poor and the aspirations of the youth. I will do my sincere effort to do justice for the needy,” he vowed.

Saying he would not have any enmity with any person or political party, he said he would not regret anything — whether people cast vote in his favour or otherwise — and he would continue the sincere efforts for the welfare of the people.

Later in the day, Mr. Pawan met a cross section of the intelligentsia and held discussions for well over three hours at the KTR function hall where he could be seen intently listening to their words even as he intermittently raised questions on specific issues.
