Pawan Kalyan’s Disappearance Raising Doubts!

No Comments

Pawan Kalyan has disappeared from the limelight after his whirlwind tour of AP during general elections.

While other party leaders are busy assessing the outcome of the polls, Pawan in his usual style has gone into hibernation and is not to be seen anywhere.

The sudden disappearance of Pawan from the news has been raising doubts over his future plans.

A section of media already started speculating that Pawan Kalyan is planning to resume his career in films depending upon the outcome of the elections.

Few went ahead and reported that Pawan Kalyan has hit the gym to get fit for his next film.

Interestingly, a few leaders of Janasena are still connecting with people via various service activities.

JSP leaders like VV Lakshmi Narayana are receiving accolades for being responsible irrespective of the result. But the leader of JSP is not to be seen anywhere.

Pawan always gets disconnected with his movies after he is done with the dubbing. He doesn’t care about the result of his films. But is that a right strategy in the politics?

People and media might not consider him as a serious player unless he fights for the public without going off the radar for long intervals.

TDP Sees Through Pawan’s Game Plan!

Actor-turned-politician and Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan is going through a tough situation.

While his party has little chances of winning more than five or six seats out of 175 seats in Andhra Pradesh assembly in the ongoing elections, his own prospects of victory in Bhimavaram in West Godavari and Gajuwaka in Visakhapatnam are in jeopardy.

However, Pawan has to win either of the two seats to salvage at least his personal prestige.

According to sources, Pawan has entered into an understanding with Telugu Desam Party candidate Palla Srinivasa Rao in Gajuwaka – that Rao should keep a low profile in the present elections and allow Pawan to win the seat.

Pawan apparently told the TDP candidate that he would be winning Bhimavaram seat, too and after the elections, he would retain this seat. Then he would resign from Gajuwaka and in the ensuing by-elections, he would extend support to Rao in winning Gajuwaka seat.

Initially, the TDP candidate is learnt to have agreed for the proposal and did not campaign much for himself.

However, of late, there have been reports that Pawan is going to lose the Bhimavaram seat and has fair chances of winning Gajuwaka seat. Rao realised that in such a situation, Pawan will not give up his Gajuwaka seat at all.

So, the TDP candidate lost no time and started intensifying his campaign in Gajuwaka. For the last four or five days, Rao has been seen everywhere attacking the rivals including Pawan Kalyan.

Unlike Jana Sena chief, Rao, a civil engineer with expertise in seismic-resistant designs, is a local man and is son of former TDP MLA Palla Simhachalam.

Since he is a native, he says he has fair understanding of the people of Gajuwaka, an industrial belt with a lot of issues relating to pollution, rehabilitation and resettlement packages for the project displaced and housing.

Naidu operating Pawan: Namaste Telangana

TRS chief and Telangana CM KCR’s mouthpiece “Namaste Telangana’ carried an editorial to launch a tirade against Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan.

The editorial accused TDP chief and AP CM N Chandrababu Naidu ‘operating’ Pawan Kalyan from behind because both Naidu and Pawan are speaking the ‘same language’ for the past few days.

The ‘same language’ used by both of them is igniting ‘Andhra sentiment’ among AP voters by levelling false allegations against KCR and Telangana government, it says.

The editorial took a dig at Pawan’s comments that AP businessmen and people living in Hyderabad are being ‘beaten up’ and ‘threatened’ by Telangana government.

It questioned how come Mega family comprising of Chiranjeevi, Nagababu, Pawan Kalyan, Ram Charan, Allu Aravind, Allu Arjun and others, who own huge assets, businesses in Hyderabad are residing in Hyderabad and leading a peaceful life under TRS regime.

Pawan Kalyan himself owns a big farmhouse in Hyderabad, where he undertakes agriculture.

The editorial stated that with these ‘cheap comments’, Pawan exposed himself before the public that he is a puppet in the hands of Naidu and that Naidu has been operating Pawan from behind.

The editorial also questioned Naidu’s ‘corrupt coterie’ who own huge assets in Hyderabad and face cases of financial irregularities did not change the party, even Naidu’s and Pawan’s allegations that TRS government is threatening those facing cases to change

It questioned why Sujana Chowdhary, CM Ramesh, Rayapati Sambashiva Rao, Lagadapati Rajagopal not changed parties, who are facing severe cases and residing in Telangana.

Was JD’s entry into JSP a strategic move?

The entry of retired IPS officer and former joint director of Central Bureau of Investigation V V Lakshminarayana into Jana Sena Party headed by actor Pawan Kalyan on Sunday, at a time when there was a talk that he would actually join the Telugu Desam Party, came as a surprise to many.

The general impression one would get from the development is that Lakshminarayana had to join the Jana Sena Party after he did not get any assurance for the party ticket from TDP president and chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

There were reports that Naidu is likely to field Lakshminarayana from Bhimili assembly constituency and shift his son Nara Lokesh to Visakhapatnam (north). Ganta Srinivasa Rao, who is representing Bhimili at present, will be fielded from Visakhapatnam Lok Sabha constituency.

But after Naidu announced the candidates’ list, Lakshminarayana has apparently realized that he is not going to get the TDP ticket. Since he is very serious about contesting the elections, he had no other choice but to join the Jana Sena in the presence of Pawan Kalyan.

However, there is a talk in the political circles that JD’s entry into the Jana Sena Party is just a strategic move. Apparently, Naidu realized that there would be more damage than benefit to the TDP if Lakshminaryana joins the party and contests elections.

The YSR Congress party already started negative propaganda that Lakshminarayana had already been in nexus with Naidu in foisting cases against YSR Congress party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy in 2012 and sending him to jail.

The recent letter released by Naidu, purported to have been written by former Enforcement Director Karnal Singh to former CBI director Alok Varma in May 2017 exposing a quid pro quo deal involving Jagan was also attributed to Naidu-JD nexus.

In a bid to avoid this controversy, Naidu did not give him the party ticket. However, he reportedly showed an alternative route to JD for his political entry – that is Jana Sena Party.

According to an unwritten agreement, JD will contest on JSP ticket in the LS polls and the TDP will support him indirectly.

If JD wins, he can come back into the TDP fold later. So, it is a strategic move.

If Lakshminarayana is very sincere about his politics, he has to go hammer and tongs at Naidu and TDP during the elections. If he doesn’t make any criticism of Naidu, it clearly establishes that JD and Naidu are hand in glove!

Pawan Contest From?

No Comments

Suspense continues over the assembly constituency from which Jana Sena Party president and power star Pawan Kalyan would contest in the April 11 assembly elections.

Pawan has so far released two lists of contestants for assembly elections, comprising 32 candidates each.

The second list was released after midnight on Sunday. His name has not figured in any of the two lists.

Besides these 64 seats, Pawan has allotted 21 assembly seats for Bahujan Samaj Party and seven seats each for CPI and CPI (M).

On Monday morning, he announced the name of another candidate for Penamaluru assembly seat.

With this, Pawan has announced the contestants for 100 seats. He is still left with 75 seats, for which he is looking for suitable candidates.

May be, he is looking for defections of seniors from other parties, who cannot get the party tickets in their respective parties.

Yet, there is no clarity on the constituency from where Pawan would enter the fray. Normally, presidents of various parties firm up their constituencies well in advance and their names figure in the first list itself.

But it appears so far, Pawan has not made up his mind from where he is going to contest. This has given rise to suspicion as to whether he will contest the elections at all.

May be he is apprehensive that his image will go to the rock-bottom and his party will collapse, if he cannot win his own seat. That is why he may be hesitant to announce his candidature.
