Pawan Kalyan plans to tour Telangana ahead of 2019 polls
Jana Sena chief and actor Pawan Kalyan is set to tour Telangana after his ongoing tour in AP concludes. The tour is aimed at strengthening the base of his party in Telangana before the 2019 Assembly elections.
Mr Pawan started his first tour in Telangana in January this year, when he announced his decision to quit films and engage in full-time political activities of Jana Sena. He launched his yatra from Kondagattu temple near Karimangar after a darshan of famous Kondagattu Hanuman. He toured Khammam and Nizamabad districts later.
Jana Sena on Saturday organised a meeting of the party’s student activists from all districts of Telangana to discuss preparations for the upcoming elections. The party’s general secretary Thota Chandrasekhar said it has already established organisational base in GHMC and HMDA limits and the focus is now on expanding the same to other districts.
“Pawan has a huge fan following in both Telangana and AP. He is currently touring AP to strengthen party base. He will soon take up yatra in Telangana covering all districts to gear up the party for the upcoming elections,” he said.
The party’s political affairs committee convenor M. Gangadharam said youth were showing more interest to join Jana Sena and work as sainiks in all districts. The party would take up a membership drive in all districts and gear up to contest all seats on its own.
