It is already known that Bharathiya Janatha Party and Janasena have formed an alliance in Andhra Pradesh. The parties are likely to join hands in Telangana as well.

Coming to the topic, it is still unclear if BJP will project Pawan Kalyan as its chief minister candidate in Andhra Pradesh.

If Pawan is projected as CM candidate, it will certainly leave the seniors in BJP disappointed. However, BJP will be hoping to make the most of Pawan’s star power and the best possible way to put it to effective use is by promoting him as the chief minister candidate.

Kanna Lakshminarayana is one of the senior leaders in the party and his opinion will stand key in this regard.

Incidentally, even TDP is looking to get BJP’s support and the saffron party is yet to take the final decision in this regard. If the BJP high command approves the same, TDP, Janasena, and BJP might contest jointly in the next election.
