Pawan Kalyan opens up on the third aspect (Patriotism) of the five issues he choose to focus. His reaction begins with the query, 'To whom do I have to prove my Patriotism?'.
Jana Sena President declares True Patriotism will come into experience when an individual or political party goes beyond caste, creed, class, religion, region, ethnic n linguistic differences. He makes it clear that Patriotism can't be seen through as one Party's perspective or ideals.
PK believes True Meaning of Patriotism is deeply rooted in human values and it is holistic in nature. 'In Democracy, Differing with the Ruling Party's opinion or policy can't be labelled as anti-national,' he added, cautioning BJP that any action taken without even paying a heed to the views of its Opponents would only backfire as it did in the case of JNU-Delhi students sedition case and it was proven that the tape was doctored.
Responding on the National Anthem before screening in theaters, The Actor-turned-Politico opined what was supposed to be a simple evening to spend time with family and friends by watching a movie has been made into a testing ground to prove one's patriotism. 'Why only Cinemas, why not political parties start their meetings with National Anthem and why not highest offices in the country do the same? Why don't those who preach and enforce laws lead us by example?? So the are 'SIGN POSTS'?? It reminds me of American Economist Thomas Sowell's words - 'Are we turning the law into a trap for honest people and bonanza for charlatans?,' he commented.
