Amaravati: Power Star Pawan Kalyan chief of Jana Sena has been exploring all strategies to be a force to reckon with in the AP politics. He hogged the media limelight when he supported TDP-BJP combine in 2014 and when PM Modi invited him, shook hands with him during his swearing in ceremony.
He went into silent mode after that and blew hot and cold whenever he woke up from his sleep. However he started becoming active after the results of Karnataka assembly elections. In the three way contest BJP fell marginally short of majority while Congress came a distant second. Kumaraswamy's JD(S) won around 30 seats and infact it couldn’t retain seats it won in the previous elections. However Kumaraswamy hit a jackpot and became the CM of Karnataka.
Pawan too felt that in a three way contest in Andhra Pradesh between Chandra Babu's TDP, Jagan's YSRCP and his Jana Sena, he will gain immensely. Pawan took Kumaraswamy as his role model and from then on actively started campaigning in AP elections.
But analysts say Pawan may not be able to emulate his role model as there is no chance of hung assembly in Andhra Pradesh. They feel, AP will see either TDP or YSRCP getting majority on its own and Pawan has no chance to hit a jackpot and become the CM.
