TS BJP chief spokesperson Krishna Sagar Rao said, "Pawan Kalyan consistently issuing baseless and shallow statements against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Central government is highly reprehensible." He called Kalyan's statements random and casual, and questioned his "audacity" to criticise Prime Minister Narendra Modi "without citing any specific issues".

Pawan Kalyan, chief of the Jana Sena, had called for the unity of political parties in South India, and Rao called this a "sham".

He questioned Kalyan's brother Chiranjeevi's move to float a party and alleged that he merged with the Congress after elections to obtain a cabinet seat. Rao asked if Kalyan believes that Congress is a south Indian party.

Rao called Kalyan's party "invisible" and said that it would be rejected by the people. He has said that the actor-politician has tried to create a rift between people trough his tweets.
