GVL unhappy with BJP-Jana Sena tie-up?

GVL unhappy with BJP-Jana Sena tie-up?

It looks like Bharatiya Janata Party national spokesperson and Rajya Sabha member G V L Narasimha Rao is not happy with the party’s decision to forge an alliance with Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena Party.

Apparently, GVL thinks Pawan Kalyan is a close partner of Telugu Desam Party led by N Chandrababu Naidu who he doesn’t like.

In fact, GVL came into limelight in Andhra politics only after Naidu severed ties with the BJP and since then, he has been vehemently attacking the TDP and Naidu.

So, when Pawan Kalyan came forward to have an alliance with the BJP, GVL did not approve of the idea. Instead, he had suggested that Pawan should merge his party with the BJP and become its member. 

He is said to be of the view that as long as Pawan remains an independent entity, he is unreliable and there is no guarantee that he might not change his stand at a later stage and join hands with the TDP.

What GVL did not like was the statement of Pawan Kalyan that he had decided to join hands with the BJP only after the latter gave an assurance that it would oppose shifting of capital from Amaravati to Visakhapatnam. 

Right from the beginning, GVL was not agreeing with the state BJP leaders supporting the fight against three capitals issue, since any such fight would only benefit the TDP ultimately, as Amaravati was the brainchild of Chandrababu Naidu. 

So, he has been arguing that the capital issue was entirely a state subject and the BJP as a national party has nothing do with it, though it can express its view but not take up an agitation that would only benefit the TDP.

On Tuesday, too, GVL openly targeted the TDP on Amaravati issue. He demanded that the YSRC government should take strong action against the TDP leaders for doing insider trading in Amaravati lands issue.

“The evidences produced by the minister in the assembly seem to be perfect. Why is the government not taking any action against the TDP leaders when you have such strong evidences?” he asked.

He also found fault with the “leaks” being given by Pawan Kalyan that he would be going to Delhi on Wednesday and take up the matter of three capitals with the BJP central leadership. Pawan said he would ask for the central intervention in the matter.

Taking strong exception to this, GVL issued a statement that there was no truth in the reports that the BJP central leadership would discuss the capital issue with Jana Sena chief.

“This is completely untrue and motivated misreporting. We have repeatedly made it clear that the capital issue is within the domain of the state and the Centre cannot and will not intervene in this decision,” he said.

“There will be no meetings regarding capital change with anyone in the central government,” he asserted.
