Pawan Kalyan plans yatra, speaks of financial issues --- Pawan Kalyan has decided to launch a mass contact programme in Telugu states

By Udumula Sudhakar Reddy

 Jana Sena chief and actor Pawan Kalyan has decided to launch a mass contact programme in Telugu states, particularly Andhra Pradesh. He is yet to decide whether he would take up a padayatra, go on a bus yatra or organise public meetings in order to stay connected with people ahead of the 2019 elections.

Sources from the actor’s camp said that the schedule had not yet been finalised but an in-principle decision has been taken to do the yatra in Andhra Pradesh. The actor had stated as much during a series of interviews following the release of his film Sardaar Gabbar Singh.  He clarified that he would not merge his party with the BJP. He wants to build a mass base before building the party structure.

Pawan Kalyan has categorically stated that Jana Sena would remain an independent entity. He also denied joining hands with his brother on a political platform but has thrown hints saying that he is open for a multi-party system.
Political pundits say that though the Jana Sena chief has clarified several issues, there is a lot of ambiguity in several answers he had given during his interviews to print and electronic media.

Asked about his party emerging as an alternative he said he was not sure and spoke about financial constraints he was facing. On several issues like Kapu reservations, the Dalit issue at the University of Hyderabad, Pawan Kalyan did not express his opinion strongly and his answers were rather wavering and superficial, observers said.
