Pawan Kalyan has been to Lucknow to meet BSP leader Mayawati. Janasena chief is seeking alliance with BSP to attract Schedule Caste and tribes votes in Andhra Pradesh.
BCs are most likely to support TDP as Kapus are demanding BC status to their community. So, Pawan feels that Dalits support would help Janasena emerge as strong party in upcoming elections as Kapus will any how be with him.
Usually, SC, & ST community people incline towards YSRCP and Congress. Pawan wants to pull them towards Janasena by alliance with Mayawati.
Rival party leaders started criticizing Pawan for resorting to caste based politics. “Pawan often makes tall claims that he is beyond caste and religion and that he is striving to bring change in politics. How come he is now making caste calculations for votes,” ask they.
