Discontent growing in Jana Sena

Must read

In a move that has stirred discontent within the ranks of the Jana Sena party, its chief Pawan Kalyan’s decision to align with TDP leader Chandrababu Naidu for the upcoming elections has left many party leaders disappointed and disillusioned. Despite years of dedicated grassroots efforts by leaders like Kiran Royal in Tirupati, Bolisetty Satyanarayana in Visakhapatnam, and Sandeep Panchakarla in Bheemili, hopes for party tickets in the forthcoming elections were dashed as Pawan Kalyan opted to prioritize the alliance over the aspirations of his hard-working cadre.
Initially allocated 24 assembly and three Lok Sabha seats under the seat-sharing agreement, Jana Sena’s share was reduced to 21 assembly and two Lok Sabha seats after joining the NDA. This reduction further complicated the distribution of tickets, leading to deserving leaders like Lakshmipathy in Anantapur and Sundarapu Satish in Vizag being overlooked, deepening resentment among party loyalists.
Observers speculate that Chandrababu Naidu may be strategically positioning leaders denied tickets within Jana Sena to contest under its banner, potentially undermining Pawan Kalyan’s authority and credibility. This development draws parallels to the political trajectory of Pawan Kalyan’s brother, Chiranjeevi, whose Praja Rajyam Party merged with Congress, disappointing millions of supporters who had hoped for a new approach to governance. The current alliance with TDP raises concerns about Jana Sena’s autonomy and its leader’s fidelity to his original vision.
