Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan is planning to start his next round of Porata Yatra from West Godavari district from the next week. Though his tour in Visakhapatnam is not completed yet, the sources in the Jana Sena party say that Pawan Kalyan, after his eye surgery, is now planning to begin his tour from West Godavari district for security reasons.
He had initially planned to resume the tour in Visakhapatnam and come to East Godavari district. However, as YSR Congress president Jaganmohan Reddy is already in the East Godavari district, the Jana Sena ranks felt that the police might deny permission for his tour on account of security. It is for this reason, the Jana Sena had dropped the idea of going back to Visakhapatnam and enter East Godavari district. Instead, the party is planning to start the second phase of the tour from Eluru or Bhimavaram.
Pawan Kalyan is likely to reach Vijayawada for this weekend where he is planning to have some important meetings to strengthen the party in the coastal districts. As he had already hired a house and the party office in Vijayawada, the Jana Sena chief wants to plan his party activities from here shortly. The second phase of the tour will also be announced from his new office in Vijayawada, the party sources said.
During his brief stay in Vijayawada, Pawan Kalyan is likely to meet the CPI and the CPM leaders and be part of their massive human chain formation programme scheduled for July 25 seeking special category status and other demands. The Left parties have already given this call and are busy campaigning across the State with an intention of having at least 1 crore participants from the village level to the State level. This being a massive programme, the Left parties want Pawan Kalyan too to join them which would make it a big hit.
