Telangana chief minister’s daughter K Kavita reacted to the alliance of Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena and Mayawati’s BSP and termed it a political stunt. Kavita also said that TRS is Telangana’s B-team, not anyone else’s.
Nizamabad: Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) leader and MP K Kavita stated that Pawan Kalyan's Jana Sena alliance with BSP is nothing but a political stunt.
Addressing the media on Friday, K Kavita, daughter of Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said that she has not seen Pawan Kalyan speak about Dalit issues.
Speaking about the Jana Sena and BSP, Kavita said, "To me, it looks like a political stunt. The real issue will be whether he fights alone in Andhra Pradesh or with Chandrababu Naidu. He will have to give an explanation to people on that."
BSP chief Mayawati confirmed that her party and actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan's Jana Sena would fight together in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.
Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan said, "We would like to see Behen ji Mayawati ji as the Prime Minister of our country, this is our wish and our ardent desire."
Kavita further alleged that the BJP and the Congress had never paid heed to any issues that concerned Telangana.
She said, "We are not anyone's B-team, we are B-team only of people of Telangana, unlike Congress, which only seeks political advantage."
Kavita's statement came after Rahul Gandhi had dubbed the TRS as BJP's B-team. She concluded the press conference asserting that the issues of the state can only be resolved when there are more MPs in the Parliament.
"TRS is a party which is a local party in Telangana, but has the vision to work on national and international issues as well. Local parties with global perspective will certainly lead tomorrow," Kavita said.
Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena was ready with the first list of candidates on March 13. The actor-politician took to Twitter to say that the party has finalised candidates for 32 Assembly segments and nine Parliamentary
Established in 2014, the Jana Sena will be jumping into the political battlefield for the first time this year.
