BJP Andhra Pradesh wing president Somu Veerraju met with JanaSenani Pawan Kalyan in Hyderabad today and discussed the current political trends in Andhra Pradesh.

BJP confirmed that Tirupati by-election candidate selection topic came to discussion during the meeting.

Notably, Janasena had to step away from GHMC elections upon BJP’s request. Now, Pawan Kalyan is apparently determined to field his party candidate in Tirupati by-election.

Meanwhile, BJP has already intimated to its cadre that they will be fielding their own candidate and Janasena would be supporting them.

If JanaSena does not field its candidate in the by-election and support BJP candidate, it would project the party as the weaker member in the alliance. Pawan Kalyan will be trying to avoid the same and the only way to do so is by convincing BJP and fielding his party candidate.

The big question is, will BJP accept Pawan Kalyan’s request? We will know the answer very soon.
