After floating his party in 2014, Pawan teamed up with TDP-BJP alliance, shared stages with Narendra Modi and Chandrababu Naidu.
A recent event in Amaravathi become a venue for interesting political development in Andhra Pradesh. At the event, the state Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu dropped hints about a 'possible re-alliance' with Pawan Kalyan's Jana Sena Party.
This comes midst his series of scathing remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, accusing him of the country not benefiting from his policies. He also continued to corner Telangana CM K Chandrashekar Rao and his opposition leader Jaganmohan Reddy, by calling them 'Middle Modi' and Junior Modi' respectively.
While releasing as many as 10 white papers on Tuesday, when he explained the development of the state in different sectors, Chandrababu Naidu accused Narendra Modi-led BJP government of allegedly creating hindrances against state growth.
On the occasion, when the media asked his responses to Jagan's remarks, stating that Naidu and Pawan are allies. To this, Naidu said, “What is his (Jagan) problem if Pawan has an alliance with us? He should first tell if he is colluding with BJP and where he stands in the national scenario. I have been seeing that he (Jagan) is attacking Pawan to make sure he would not come to us. I told Pawan Kalyan to come out and fight against BJP and protect the rights of Andhra Pradesh.”
After floating his party in 2014, Pawan teamed up with TDP-BJP alliance, shared stages with Narendra Modi and Chandrababu Naidu. However, the rift between TDP and JSP began in early 2018, when Pawan Kalyan, withdrew his support to TDP, calling Chandrababu's regime corrupt and his Amaravati capital project as a non-inclusive one.
When further asked if he will join Pawan if he comes back, the CM said, “I will not comment on such hypothetical questions now; it's not correct.” Meanwhile, Jana Sena cadres are yet to respond to the “invitation” from the CM.
