JSP to contest all seats, but where’re candidates?

Power star and Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan has been making tall claims that his party would not have any tie up with any party and would contest all the assembly and Lok Sabha seats in the next elections.So far so good. But the problem is Pawan has so far not built up his party organisation yet, let alone identifying the candidates for the next elections. He is going one step forward and two steps backwards.

His Jana Chaitanya Yatra has been facing a bumpy ride as Pawan has not been able to sustain the long yatras and is taking rest for more than a week for every 10 days or tour.Jana Sena Party spokespersons said before the commencement of Pawan Kalyan’s tour that during the yatra, he would identify party candidates for every constituency and announce their names.

He has completed tour in Srikakulam and Vizianagaram districts and covered half of Visakhapatnam districts, but so far, he has not announced any candidates in these two districts.What is worse, unrest is mounting among the party cadre, as Pawan is admitting all and sundry into the party, who realised they might not get the party tickets in other parties.He is not taking into consideration the views of his fans, a mistake which was committed by his brother megastar Chiranjeevi while running the Praja Rajyam Party. At several places, Jana Sainiks have been agitating before the party offices.

Interestingly, the Left parties are also slowly distancing themselves from Pawan Kalyan, ever since he declared that there would be no alliance with any party and that his party would contest the elections on its own.
