Four party grand alliance on the cards in Andhra Pradesh to support NaMo
Andhra Pradesh has seen hectic political developments during the last three days to consolidate the widespread popularity of NDA’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and also to bring together all non-Congress parties, who are not aspiring for post-poll alliance with Congress. These efforts are leading to formation of `grand alliance’ with four parties coming together. The state is also set for Narendra Modi to launch a poll campaign of this alliance from Visakhapatnam during the last week of March at a massive youth conclave.
The parties joining in this
alliance are Telugu Desam Party, Jana Sena, floated by popular film
star Pawan Kalyan
last week and Lok Satta Party founded by former
IAS Dr N Jayaprakash Narayan, besides BJP. Leaders of
these parties - N Chandrababu Naidu, Pawan Kalyan
Narayan will share the dias with Narendra Modi at the public
Presently leaders of these
parties are engaging in hectic consultations on seat sharing. Pawan
Kalyan, who had detailed discussion with Chandrababu Naidu, is said
to be in touch with some BJP leaders and is also likely to meet
Narendra Modi very soon.
According to sources, he is
not insisting on the number of seats, but promising to extensively
campaign with a slogan `Defeat Congress – Save Nation'. He is
keeping his eyes on 2019 elections thinking that by that time he can
strengthen his organizational presence.
BJP leaders have reportedly
already given a list of constituencies through national spokesperson
Prakash Javadekar to TDP leadership. BJP Parliamentary Board and
National Election Committee is expected to make a formal announcement
of this alliance soon.
Pawan Kalyan is planning to
organize Visakhapatnam event by his party Jana Sena. He is apparently
considering this meet exclusive for the youth of the state to
enlighten them about the current political situation in the state. He
is reportedly planning to launch his book ISM co-authored with his
friend Raju Raviteja. The book will contain the ideology of Jana Sena
Party. He is mostly insisting on policy issues and to keep away
from vote-bank politics.
