Jana Sena chief and actor Pawan Kalyan said that both Chandrababu Naidu and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy should own up the responsibility for the closure of the Tummapala sugar factory and the consequent starvation deaths of the workers.

Addressing a meeting in Anakapalli as part of his Jana Sena Porata Yatra, he said that the people of North Andhra were facing problems only because they were electing outsiders as their MLAs.
He said the one day expenditure of Chandrababu Naidu’s Nava Nirmana Deeksha was enough to reopen the Tummapala Sugar Mills. He said the illegal quarrying was wreaking havoc on the environment in Anakapalli region.
