BJP senior leader GVL Narasimha Rao has just confirmed that his party will be fielding its candidate in Tirupati by-election. “BJP will certainly he contesting in the forthcoming Tirupati Lok Sabha by-election,” he stated.
Narasimha Rao said that BJP had gained a lot of momentum in Andhra Pradesh and they will be taking it forward in the forthcoming by-election as well.
This would mean that Janasena will not be fielding its candidate in the by-election and Pawan Kalyan will be supporting BJP’s candidate.
Speaking with media yesterday, Pawan Kalyan said contesting in the elections is secondary for him and he always wishes for the collective welfare of common public. This might be an indication that BJP’s candidature in Tirupati is all but confirmed.
Both Janasena and BJP will be jointly finalizing a candidate for the elections soon and the news will be made public.
