It’s Official: Pawan To Lead The Grand Alliance

At last, after several months-long dilly-dallying and sly talks, here comes an official statement about the pre-poll alliance between Pawan Kalyan’s Janasena and both the Left parties. CPM State Secretary Madhu’s latest statement has thrown the spotlight on the grand alliance in the poll-bound Andhra Pradesh.

“We are forming a grand alliance in AP with both the Left parties, Janasena, Lok Satta, BSP and Aam Aadmi Party under the leadership of Pawan Kalyan,” Madhu said, further adding, “the grand alliance’s sole aim is to ‘kick out’ the ruling TDP and BJP.”

However, it remains to be seen if the grand alliance can show its might amidst the powerful TDP and YSRCP. Apart from the organizational leadership, CPI, CPM, AAP and the BSP lack a strong cadre which will be instrumental in winning a few seats.
