Pawan Kalyan hurt by the Andhra Pradesh bifurcation, stormed into politics. With minimal political experience, Pawan's re-entry was huge sensation. Launching massive attack on the parties for dividing the state in a ruthless manner, Pawan gave a thought of contesting the elections. However political parties started worrying about the split in the votes with Pawan's arrival and his party Jana Sena.
As this split of votes touched Pawan's ears, he withdrew the thought of contesting the elections. At the Vizag public meeting, Pawan made it clear that he did not enter the politics for the sake of money or any lucrative post. “I came to question,” was Pawan's slogan. In Hyderabad meeting Pawan claimed Chandrababu as good person and in Vizag meeting Pawan openly supported Narendra Modi as PM candidate and also said that he would meet him.
In this mean time Modi wave also passed through him. After hectic brain storming, Pawan decided to support BJP and TDP in the elections. Firstly, Pawan appealed to all his fans to support Modi as PM and TDP in the state. Having said that Pawan did not restrict himself to words, he campaigned aggressively in Telangana and Seemandhra region. We can't judge in Telangana whether Pawan's campaign helped or not because of the Telangana sentiment factor which is much stronger but in Seemandhra, Pawan will be the deciding factor for the BJP and TDP.
TDP went alone in Municipal, ZPTC and MPTC elections and the results were very much in favor of the cycle party. With Pawan extending the support for general elections, the results of these elections can be expected one sided. Definitely we can predict that Pawan's support we make a big difference for TDP where the party is strong and wherever it is lagging behind, Pawan can pull the strings and minimize defeat level. Overall Pawan acted like Lord Sri Krishna in Kurukshetra battle.
Did Pawan really influence people and have they voted for TDP, well these two questions can be answered on May 16th, the day election results will be out. The real test starts for TDP if it forms government in Seemandhra. As we know Pawan who also claimed that he won't mind dragging anybody to public if failed to fulfill the promises made.
