The Jana Sena Chief’s clarification over alliance with the NDA has sent a straight signal to the BJP that he has a clear agenda for 2019 Assembly elections. Pawan Kalyan’s ‘perform or perish formula’ has created more worries to the TDP leadership as they have just deployed their young leader Lokesh into direct politics. The Jana Sena supremo has also clarified that Chiranjeevi wouldn’t be a part of the Jana Sena.
His statement about 60 per cent seats would be given to youth in 2019 is nothing but to disturb the cadre base of the TDP. In fact, a recent survey conducted for Jana Sena has suggested that Jana Sena would secure 65, TDP 71 and YSRC 39 in 2019 Assembly elections also prompted Pawan Kalyan to declare his road map. A recent survey conducted has suggested that in case of instant elections, Jana Sena would secure five seats in Srikakulam, four in Vizianagaram, nine in Visakhapatnam, 15 in East Godavari, 12 in West Godavari, six in Krishna district, five in Guntur, three each in Prakasam, Nellore and Chittoor districts. However, the Jana Sena won’t have space in Rayalaseema districts – Kadapa, Kurnool and Anantapur districts.
The survey has suggested that the YSRC would secure 39 and the TDP will get 71 seats in 2019 Assembly elections. Though Pawan Kalyan has suggested that he would field candidates from both the Telugu states, his main concentration is on AP, according to his close associate and a former minister. “The mistakes committed by the Praja Rajyam won’t take place,” Pawan Kalyan has clarified and sent straight signals to both the TDP and the BJP that he would not be sailing with them in 2019.
