Strong aspirants, who are denied a chance to get TDP tickets, are looking towards Jana Sena in North Coastal Andhra. They seem to consider Pawan a far safer bet to enhance their future political careers rather than Jaganmohan Reddy.
Now, TDP senior leader Sundarapu Vijaya Kumar shifted his loyalty and joined Jana Sena in the presence of Pawan Kalyan. Vijaya Kumar wants to contest elections from Yelamanchili assembly segment in Visakhapatnam district in 2019.
The rise of Jana Sena as an alternative party for ticket aspirants has come as a severe blow to YCP. Even TDP leadership is closely monitoring the situation in the context of aspirations that are certain to crop up among second rung leaders in different constituencies.
While joining Jana Sena, Vijaya Kumar said that he was attracted to Pawan’s ideology to serve the public and work for the uplift of the poorer sections. Some more local leaders have also joined Jana Sena.
