Janasena President Pawan Kalyan lost from both his seats – Bhimavaram and Gajuwaka in 2019 elections. Both the seats have a huge population of Kapu community but even then, Pawan Kalyan lost.
In 2024, Pawan Kalyan wants to contest only from one seat as contesting from two seats is creating confusion among voters.
After 2019, it was said that Pawan Kalyan will not contest from both the seats but now, the Janasenani had a change of mind. He is likely to contest from Bhimavaram once again.
Janasena thinks it is strong in the Godavari districts due to community support and also wants to get the bulk of the seats from TDP in these two districts.
With TDP’s support, Janasena can easily win the seats it contests. The only problem is due to the TDP leaders who will be disappointed missing the seats to Janasena.
Pawan Kalyan contesting from Bhimavaram will help other candidates as well, the party believes.
On the other side, Jagan is likely to make Bhimavaram MLA Grandhi Srinivas a minister so as to support the giant killer in 2024 as well.
