Vastavam web: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday demanded action against senior Telugu actor and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) legislator N. Balakrishna for using objectionable language while targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The BJP delegation, led by Vishnukumar Raju, submitted a memorandum to the Governor demanding action against Balakrishna.Balakrishna on Friday described Modi as a “gaddar” (traitor) and “namak haram” (cheat) for going back on the promise of granting special category status to Andhra Pradesh. Balakrishna, younger son of legendary actor and TDP founder N.T. Rama Rao, spared no words in targeting Modi.He predicted that the BJP would not win even a single seat in Andhra Pradesh in the next elections. “You are trying to play Sikhandi (an eunuch character in Mahabharata) politics by taking the help of our rivals to attack the TDP. But your cheap politics won’t work here. You cannot succeed in your attempts,” he said.The actor also accused Modi of trying to gain grip over Andhra Pradesh as he had done in Gujarat.
