Two prominent personalities in the state are launching their political outfits at the same time. While the agenda of Kiran Kumar Reddy is to 'Safeguard the respect and pride of Telugus', Pawan Kalyan is trying to bring a 'change in political system'.
Coming to the support these two parties are having. Pawan has a humongous fan base, yet they are having divided opinions on Pawan's political entry. And Chiru's fans will also add to it. Whereas Kiran, has also made a set of fan following by openly revolting against his command and supporting the united Andhra concept.
Especially the NGOs, majority of government employees, students and youth are in favour of Kiran. Another thing which adds to him is his educational background, which makes him a perfect new generation political leader.
The major issue with Pawan is lack of political knowledge, whereas Kiran has a vast political experience and knows about ground realities, poll booth politics etc. And many senior leaders are like Lagadapati Rajagopal, Undavalli Arun Kumar, Rayapati Samba Siva Rao, Harsha Kumar and many others are behind him.
Coming to Kiran's drawbacks, caste factor seems to be one major issue. While a large section of Reddys are supporting Jagan Mohan Reddy, and the other major caste that is 'Kapus' will be supporting Pawan, there is very little scope for Kiran.
With the two new parties emerging in Andhra, the political battle is going to be multi-cornered in Andhra Pradesh and the parties in competition will be Chandra Babu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party, Jagan's YSRCP, Kiran's party and Pawan's party. Its now time to see which leader is going to attract the people of Andhra.
