Pawan To Plunge Into Full-Time Politics?
Hyderabad: Power Star Pawan Kalyan who has been criticised as a guest artist in politics by some politicians, finally seems to have decided to commit himself to politics. If reports are to be believed, he is keen to complete the film being directed by Trivikram as soon as possible and plunge into the political arena as a full-time politician.
He has taken a different approach towards strengthening his party. Recently it was reported that he held examinations to those who were interested in joining the party. The party sources said that Pawan wants his cadre to be more dynamic and knowledgeable, unlike other party cadres.
Pawan recently announced that he would be contesting in the 2019 elections. Though he initially wanted to contest from Anantapur, there were suggestions that he should fight from Hindupur which happens to be the constituency of Nandamuri Balakrishna another actor-turned-politician, it is being said that he has not yet chosen the constituency. Sources said that he wants to select a constituency which will guarantee his win.
After realising that he can’t have the cake and eat it too, he has decided to vote for politics at the moment. As every party in the State is gearing up for elections, Pawan appears to have thought of giving a break to acting. However, it was not confirmed by the star yet.
Pawan is determined not to fail like his brother, Mega Star Chiranjeevi. He tested the waters during 2014 elections and now, wants to enter politics full time. Though he is keeping good relations with AP CM Chandrababu Naidu and also BJP, speculation is that he might choose BJP as it is concentrating more on backward caste candidates than the dominant castes.
