Jana Sena president Pawan Kalyan has made it clear that he would be contesting from Ananthapur district in the next general elections sparking speculations that he is going to checkmate Balakrishna.
Pawan Kalyan would not select Hindupr Assembly constituency, the seat Balakrishna is currently representing as MLA. Yet, Balakrishna is said to be feeling insecure with Pawan's announcement.
If Pawan Kalyan fields from any constituency from Ananthapur district, his effect would be seen in all constituencies in the district.
Pawan Kalyan's Jana Sena party has been focusing on this district. Jana Sena team is focusing attracting youth and students.
This is what worrying Balakishna, say TDP workers. Moreover, Balakrishna is already facing anti-incumbency in Hindupur as he didn't anything to his voters there.
With Jana Sena coming in the competition and strong opposition party YSRCP in the fight, Balakrishna would be facing tough times.
There is already talk going on that Balayya may not contest the direct polls this time around. He may opt for MLC seat.
