Balayya, NTR enter the power games in Andhra Pradesh

Power star Pawan Kalyan made a big impression on Andhra Pradesh politics with the Guntur plenary of the Janasena party. Pawan Kalyan has been compared to Che Guevara, and his nephew Sai Dharam Tej even tweeted the same.

When Praja Rajyam had started, the Mega family had enthusiastically participated in the campaign. The sight of Chiranjeevi, accompanied by both Ram Charan and Allu Arjun, waving the Praja Rajyam flags, is something very dear to Mega fans. However, the Praja Rajyam was unable to make a dent on Telugu politics and faded into oblivion. Now, Power star has begun his political journey with Janasena. In comparison with the support given by the family to Praja Rajyam, Janasena has been largely ignored by the Mega brothers and the second generation actors from the family except for the odd congratulatory comment here and there. Pawan Kalyan is fighting his battles alone, say analysts.

Pawan, however, is making quite an impact. Initially a TDP supporter, the Guntur plenary saw him become an anti-TDP politician with several criticisms of the party and the CM Chandrababu Naidu. One comment that generated a lot of political heat was the accusation that Nara Lokesh is a corrupt politician. Asked to comment upon this, Hindupur MLA and Lokesh’s father-in-law Nandamuri Balakrishna said the statement was unworthy of comment, and that he did not want to make Pawan a hero by talking about his statements. He further said that he himself was a superhero, indirectly attacking Pawan Kalyan.
The TDP has always relied on Junior NTR whenever they were in trouble. In these demanding times, the TDP cadres are once again demanding that Tarak step in to help. It is being said that feelers have already been sent to NTR. How NTR will respond remains to be seen.
