Telangana Polls: Pawan Kalyan in dilemma?

Sunday, September 9, 2018 - 13:30

A few months ago, when there was a buzz that there would be early polls in many states along with Lok Sabha elections, actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan had tweeted that his party is very much ready for polls whenever they come. Although he had Andhra Pradesh more in his mind, Power Star was also talking about Telangana implicitly.

While polls in AP are not coming early, KCR has surprised everybody by deciding to prefer early polls. This has caught even the Congress unawares, much less the Jana Sena.  

The confusion in Pawan's mind is big now. Polls are coming when his party is not at all ready. There is no proper structure for the party in Telangana yet. It also doesn’t have cadre here. Which party to ally with, how to play cards, etc is really a difficult ball game for him also.  

The delay that Pawan made in creating a solid party structure is costing him dearly. Latest talk is that his party might not contest the polls in Telangana this time.
