As expected, former MLA from Tirupati and TTD former chairman Chadalawada Krishna Murthy joined the Jana Sena. It was almost a month due after Chadalawada decided on switching over to the Jana Sena. He had quit the Telugu Desam Party last month after a meeting with his supporters.
However, Krishna Murthy’s timing to join the Jana Sena is questioned as he joined the party when its chief Pawan Kalyan was touring Srikakulam district consoling the people who were devastated in the recent Titili cyclone. One wonders why Pawan Kalyan too had admitted the leader while touring the flood-hit areas.
Surprisingly, Pawan Kalyan had made political speech while visiting the cyclone hit families in the district, though came here a little later than expected. On one side he consoled the cyclone victims and on the other side, he had given a political speech hitting hard at the ruling TDP and Opposition YSR Congress.
Pawan Kalyan said that his political experiment in 2009 along with his brother Chiranjeevi failed. The Praja Rajyam Party, which was launched by the brothers could not win the required seats to form the government. With just 18 Assembly seats on hand after the 2009 elections, the party was finally merged with the Congress. Though Chiranjeevi took the Congress membership, Pawan Kalyan distanced himself and had floated his own Jana Sena.
However, he claimed that he had learned a lesson from the 2009 experiment and claimed that 2019 is Kurukshetra, where he would win the battle. He had asked his supporters to get ready for the battle to defeat the evil forces that have been looting the people.
