TDP forcing Jana Sena for an alliance?

TDP forcing Jana Sena for an alliance?

It looks like Telugu Desam Party led by former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is desperate to forge an alliance with the Jana Sena Party in the next assembly elections and is trying hard to get a positive response from its president and power star Pawan Kalyan for its overtures.

It is evident from a series of flex banners that appeared in the rural arears of Guntur, East and West Godavari district on the occasion of Sankranti festivities.

The flexes, obviously put up by the local TDP cadres, have the pictures of Pawan Kalyan along with that of Naidu and other local TDP leaders.

Several such banners were seen in Prathipadu in Guntur district, Narasapuram in West Godavari and Ramachandrapuram in East Godavari district.

In Godavari districts, the banners also have local Jana Sena leaders, indicating that the TDP seems to be putting psychological pressure on the Jana Sena.

Interestingly, there was no resistance from the Jana Sena Party workers or Pawan Kalyan fans, indicating that both the party leaders have an undisclosed understanding.

At the same time, there are no such posters or banners with pictures of the BJP and Jana Sena leaders. The BJP leaders have remained silent on this trend.

In fact, Pawan Kalyan or another the Jana Sena chief did not reject the overtures of Naidu, who said his party was ready for an alliance with the Jana Sena but it cannot be a one-side love and that alliances would work out only when both the sides respond.

Pawan Kalyan has chosen to keep his cards close to his chest with regard to its future alliances. He asked his party leaders about their opinion and they all told him that it would be his call and they would abide by his decision.

“As of now, we have an alliance with the BJP. We shall think about the future alliances at an appropriate time,” he said.

What is more interesting is that there were flex banners in Narasapuram recently also had the pictures of Pawan Kalyan, along with that of rebel YSR Congress MP Kanumuru Raghurama Krishnam Raju, welcoming the latter to his constituency on Sankranti festival.

Raju is learnt to have decided to join the Bharatiya Janata Party and he hopes to cash in on the BJP-Jana Sena alliance, besides of course, the TDP. If this combination works out, Naidu might also continue to try for a compromise with the BJP as well.
