Where Will Pawan Contest From?

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.
