A lot of discussion took place in political circles regarding the role to be played by Pawan Kalyan in Nandyal by-election. In the end, Jana Sena Chief played it safe by opting for a neutral stand.
Analysts have now found a common point between Jana Sena and Praja Rajyam. After Praja Rajyam was floated, Chiranjeevi remained neutral during the by-election which happened ahead of the 2009 general polls. Why because negative impact in by-poll will affect the party's prospects in general elections. Now, Pawan Kalyan is walking in the path shown by his Brother.
If Jana Sena supports either TDP or YCP in Nandyal by-election, Any negative result would prove costly for it in 2019 Polls. Hence, Neutral Stand has been chosen.
However, Critics feel negative approach of Pawan Kalyan will do more damage to Jana Sena than the actual result of the By-Election.
