What is this Pawan? Why Can't Your Party Leaders Question You?

10 Dec, 2023 07:50 IST|Sakshi Post

In recent times, actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan-led Jana Sena Party (JSP) was in the news after the party forged a pre-poll alliance with the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) for the forthcoming assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh. Since then, the party is making headlines for the teething troubles within the party. The party cadre’s skirmishes with the alliance partner TDP leaders went on for some time. 

Now, the Jana Sena party is in the news yet again. This time, the party president Pawan Kalyan created a buzz with his statement to the party’s rank and file. The party leaders and cadre got a shocking response from the leadership when they questioned the rationality behind the electoral tie-up with the Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP. The party supremo Pawan Kalyan said those leaders who ‘sold out’ to the ruling YSRCP should not ask questions to the party. 

Interestingly, Pawan Kalyan had floated the political party Jana Sena (People’s army)), asking people to question powers that be. A decade later, the party chief has apparently forgotten the motto of the party and is now silencing the dissenting voices within the party. 

However, he fails to see that the same rank and file could pose a counter question to Pawan Kalyan. They could also come up with a question of ‘selling’ the Jana Sena party to the alliance partner TDP. When the opponents call Jana Sena leader a ‘package star’, he loses his cool. 

After the party’s humiliating defeat in the Telangana assembly elections, Pawan Kalyan compared himself with former US president Abraham Lincoln fully knowing well that his fans may not be aware of the US leader’s history. The comparison is not appropriate as Lincoln was an ordinary man who made his own destiny while Pawan’s popularity among the people can be attributed to his film career and he did not make his political entry as a common man.   

Recently, the Jana Sena chief has spoken about self-respect and said that he will not let them lose their self-respect. But, that’s the core issue here. The janasainiks are worried that he is not only losing his self-respect but also putting the dignity of party workers at stake. Pawan Kalyan has said that he is not working for the CM position and added that after the assembly elections, Jana Sena and TDP will sit together and decide on the next chief minister candidate.
