AP braces for politically charged October with Pawan Kalyan turning full-time politician

|

Andhra Pradesh is bracing itself for a politically charged October with two tall leaders from the region deciding to up the ante. Keeping in mind the 2019 assembly elections, Jagan Mohan Reddy will begin the tried and tested 'padayatra' while Pawan Kalyan will begin grassroots level work for his party, both simultaneously in the month of October.

AP braces for politically charged October with Pawan Kalyan turning full-time politician

Pawan Kalyan has declared that starting October, he will turn into a full-time politician. All his movie commitments are expected to be wrapped by before he taken the political plunge completely. Pawan Kalyan who has been rallying for health related issues in the Uddanam region is all set to become a political competitor in the 2019 assembly elections both in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana for TRS, TDP, YSR Congress, INC and the BJP.

Jana Sena, Pawan Kalyan's political party was launched on the eve of elections in 2014 but he had refrained from contesting. This time around, the actor is confident of making politics his priority. Starting October, Pawan Kalyan will begin campaigning for his party. While his star power will draw crowds, translating the same into votes will be the actor's biggest challenge. The actor's October deadline came days after Jagan Mohan Reddy announced his decision to go on a statewide padayatra, again in October.

Pawan Kalyan has opted out of a padayatra citing law and order issues. Incidentally, Andhra Pradesh saw two leaders, Y S Rajashekhar Reddy and Chandrababu Naidu become chief ministers using the padayatra formula. For Pawan Kalyan, the campaign will begin by visiting select regions and meeting people and holding rallies for now.

The actor's mass fan base will add strength to any party he chooses to support. 2019 will be Pawan Kalyan's first electoral political stint. Having realistic aspirations, the actor only hopes to affect 2 per cent change in the current scenario but without his fan base translating to votes, the number may also be too high.

With his campaign beginning from October, Pawan Kalyan will officially welcome the election fever in Andhra Pradesh forcing other parties to go to the people too.
