Actor-turned-Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan on Thursday asserted that there would be triangular fight in the assembly and Lok Sabha elections in Andhra Pradesh in 2019.
Pawan, who had a meeting with party functionaries in Visakhapatnam, told media later that his party would continue its struggle with an eye on 2019 elections.
“We are going to in fight in all the assembly constituencies and Lok Sabha constituencies. Our ultimate objective is to gain power in 2019,” he asserted.
Obviously, the JSP president is talking about the Telugu Desam Party and YSR Congress party as the two other contenders.
He, however, did not talk about the Bharatiya Janata Party, which has also declared that it would put up a strong fight in the next elections in Andhra Pradesh.
The Jana Sena Party chief made it clear that he would go to the polls on the plank of special category status and non-implementation of promises made in Parliament during the bifurcation of the combined state.
“Right from the beginning, our stand has been very clear. The centre has backtracked on the promises made in Parliament. It has not implemented several promise, including special category status. We raise all these questions in the next elections,” Pawan said.
He also declared that the JSP would expose the failures of the Telugu Desam Party government in public.
The JSP leader said the party would unveil its manifesto very soon.
“If Jana Sena comes to power in the next elections, we shall erect memorials of all the martyrs who had laid down their lives during the Jai Andhra movement,” he said.
