Pawan Misguided By Janasena Team

TDP MLA Jaleel Khan has said the people in Andhra Pradesh are not ready to accept the ideology of power star Pawan Kalyan, and that his Jana Sena Party will not win even four seats in the state.

On a related note, the TDP on Friday pulled out of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) following a period of sour relations between the allies over the issue of granting "Special Category status" to Andhra Pradesh.

The no-confidence motion, moved by the TDP and YSR Congress is to put shortly on LS; against the NDA government. The YSR Congress had moved a no-confidence motion against the central government a day before the TDP announced its withdrawal from the NDA. "All the minority communities - Muslims, Christians, SC, ST and others - will support the decision of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu". Naidu, who was an admirer of Modi, is now publicly attacking him, saying the Prime Minister did not ever call him to discuss the special status issue.


"Instead of finding ways and means to honour the commitments, the BJP wasted time, and it now appears that they are gearing up for war in the State".

The Chief Minister's comments were in response to the reported comments of BJP leader Ram Madhav taunting the Chief Minister.

TDP was once a crucial ally of the BJP in the south. Its betrayal of the promise of special status for Andhra Pradesh is inexcuseable. The BJP need not bother about TDP no-confidence motion as it has a brute majority in the House. On February 19, Pawan had dared YSRCP leader Jaganmohan Reddy to move the motion and declared that he would definitely be able to garner the support of 80 MPs of various parties to support the no-confidence motion.
