It is understood that the Janasena chief is thinking of breaking with the BJP and forming an alliance with the Chandrababu-led TDP if necessary. He is giving signals that the same will happen if BJP does not come together with TDP.

Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan has made harsh comments on the state BJP leadership. At the same time, Telugu Desam Party President Nara Chandrababu Naidu seems to have put a lid on the politics of putting pressure on Naidu. He feels that Chandrababu has an inevitability to form an alliance with him. It is understood that Pawan Kalyan is pressuring Chandrababu to act in his favour. However, it is understood that he has already come to a decision on his alliances in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
It is said that he is thinking of breaking with BJP and meeting with TDP if necessary. It can also be understood from his movements. He lashed out at the BJP Andhra Pradesh leadership at the Jana Sena Avirbhava Sabha held on Tuesday. He said that if the BJP had acted as it had said, there would have been no need to talk about vote splitting. While making positive comments towards the central leadership of the BJP, he vilified the state leadership.
He said that he had reasons to say that YSR Congress (YCP) under the leadership of the current Chief Minister YS Jagan would not let the opposition vote split, and if they had implemented their planned plan in alliance with the BJP, they would have grown without the TDP. Those comments make it possible to understand that his preference is for BJP, Janasena and TDP to contest together. He faulted that BJP state leaders are not coming forward to do programs together. Pawan Kalyan said that despite the BJP leadership giving a green signal to his agenda, the state leadership is not coming together.
He said that he has no special love for TDP and respect for Chandrababu Samarth. Also, he expressed his impatience with Telangana BJP leadership. He reminded that the Telangana BJP leaders had said that if they contest the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections, they will contest like you are from Andhra, here. He said that they want the votes of the people of Andhra but how can they not contest. He said that he stood by the BJP and they were not taking it forward. It seems that he wanted the BJP to be ready for an alliance with the TDP.
Pawan Kalyan is hoping to defeat YS Jagan in any situation in the next election. It is also understandable that he thinks that it is not possible unless he joins the TDP. He is constantly addressing the Kapu community. He also says that the guards did not stand by him. However, he says that Kapus should play a bigger role and if they come forward, Yadavs, Gauds, Shettibalijas, SCs and other castes will also walk behind them. Even if the Kapu community can be alienated from the YSP, it is expected that the party will be defeated in the next elections.
