Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan has once again spoken about the district from where he will be contesting the election. Earlier, he had announced that he will contest from Anantapur district. Now he has stated that there are chances of his contesting from Srikakulam district, which he visited recently. His statement that if all goes well he will contest from Srikakulam district has triggered the debate. During his visit to Srikakulam district, people accorded him warm welcome. Large number of people attended his public meetings. It appears that overwhelmed by the huge public response, Pawan Kalyan made this announcement.
From the beginning, Pawan Kalyan had been focusing on backwards areas. He is giving priority to Rayalaseema and North Andhra districts. In Anantapur district, he opened party’s special office in Anantpur district. During his visit to North Andhra, Pawan was moved by seeing the problems there. He lamented that all rulers ignored North Andhra. That’s why overpowered by emotions he stated that he may contest from Srikakulam district.
During his visit to Srikakulam, he fired salvos at TDP. He remarked that like Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam head priest Ramana Dikshitulu was forced to retire, the people will also force Chandrababu Naidu to retire. He challenged TDP to contest the next elections on its own and without NTR’s photographs. He recalled that TDP did not win any elections without alliance.
Pawan said that there is no change in Chandrababu’s governance and remarked that if this continues, there will be another agitation for separate state. He alleged that development is being centralized and a situation is being created where common man will not be able to come to state capital Amaravati. He also ridiculed Lokesh, who had said that he is conducting his yatra on roads constructed by TDP. Pawan reminded Lokesh that the roads were built with public money. Considering Pawan’s remarks, it looks that he will contest the election from backward region of Rayalaseema or North Andhra.
