- Is Jana Sena parting ways with the BJP?
- After 2019, Pawan is set to step in Vizag for the first time
Vishakhapatnam: Jana Sena Chief Pawan Kalyan, who was defeated from Gajuwaka Constituency in 2019 assembly elections, is once again stepping in, after a gap of 2 years. This time he will be going there in support to the protest against Centre’s decision to privatise Vizag Steel Plant and to highlight the hardships of construction workers who lost their livelihood.
Jana Sena PAC Chairman Nadendla Manohar and party General secretary Thota Chandrasekhar discussed various steps to go ahead during ‘Chalo Vizag’ programme at party head quarters on Monday. According to them, sand policies of the State Government have resulted in suicides of construction workers, who are unable to bear financial problems. In support of them, a long march will take place on November 3rd by Jana Sena activists and in each constituency, activists will submit memoranda to district collectors. The main objective of the programme is to educate the people on the hardships of the construction workers, builders and the owners, who were building houses.
Pawan extends support to protests against VSP Privatisation
It is well known that for the past 260 days, employees of Steel Plant are continuously holding protest demonstrations against Central government’s decision to disinvest in VSP. This agitation was supported by all ruling parties in the state except BJP and Jana Sena until now. Protests in Delhi and Vizag, paadayatra did not change the centre’s decision. Now last but not the least, Pawan Kalyan decided to support the protests. He will arrive at Ukku protest site on October 31st at 2 pm and will extend support to them.
Jana Sena points out that it is their party chief Pawan Kalyan, who first met Home Minister Amit Shah in February and raised the issue of VSP privatisation. Pawan Kalyan is visiting Vizag after a gap of two years. In 2019, he participated in a long march organised against the sand policy by State Government.
Is Jana Sena distancing itself from BJP?
Speculations in cadre and on social media rose high on Tuesday that Pawan Kalyan took serious decision on alliance BJP. Party cadre say that it is better to fight alone rather than friendship with BJP. There is problem for the party to fight in the State as few policies of Central government are against the people. We will go ahead leaving BJP aside or else it won’t help the party’s future, say Jana Sena leaders.
The gap looks to be getting widened for the past few months. Even the decision of not contesting in Badvelu bypoll by Jana Sena was not liked by the BJP, which is going ahead and contesting.Though the leaders of both parties say that they are united, there is clear split visible in the cadre. Is this a hint for future that Jana Sena will move away from the BJP?
