Mudragada Padmanabham didn't hesitate to say Pawan Kalyan willn't succeed if he continues as a film actor while being in politics. He suggested Jana Sena Supremo to be with people if wishes to become successful like NT Rama Rao. 'NTR is the only Film Actor who succeeded in politics. Pawan should stop Films & Seasonal Movements to become a successful politician. He need to come out of the shadow of giant tree (BJP) to leave his mark,' he opined.
The Kapu Leader condemned the speculations linking him with Jana Sena - 'I won't join Jana Sena. I'm not supporting any party as of now. My support will be for the party which does justice to Kapus. For Me, Interests of My Community is more important than the welfare of five crore Andhrites. I would go to any extent for my caste'.
On the long-pending Kapu Reservations, Mudragada accused AP CM Chandrababu Naidu of cheating his community by not implementing the poll promise. He is now getting ready for next round of movement for achieving Kapu rights.
