Actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan, who has come out with the idea of floating a joint fact-finding committee (JFC) to look into the veracity of the figures given by the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Telugu Desam Party on the assistance given to Andhra Pradesh, is struggling to find leaders to join his team.
Since the political leaders in the state are associated with one party or the other, Pawan is looking for those who have been away from political activity and do not belong to any party.
So far, he could find former MP Vundavalli Arun Kumar and Lok Satta leader Dr Jayaprakash Narayan. Of course, the CPI has also come forward to support Pawan’s efforts.
Now, the latest leader to join Pawan’s bandwagon is former minister Konathala Ramakrishna.
Pawan suddenly realised that like Vundavalli, Konathala also does not belong to any party and has been politically idle, except fighting on the issues concerning north coastal Andhra.
On Wednesday, the Jana Sena Party chief called Konathala and discussed about his plans to highlight the issue of special category status and the other issues concerning the state.
He invited Konathala to attend the JFC meeting on February 16.
While agreeing to be part of Pawan’s team and attending the meeting, Konathala asked Pawan also to concentrate on the issues concerning north coastal Andhra.
So, one more politically unemployed leader joins Pawan’s team. Now, who is next?
