Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan already announced that they will fight the next elections along with TDP. However, he also said that he is a part of the NDA as well. Pawan said that he is hoping that BJP will also walk along with them. Pawan also said that he will speak to the Delhi BJP leaders on this. On the other hand, Janasena will contest the Telangana elections alone. The party announced that it will contest 32 seats.
In the last Assembly elections, Janasena attracted around 6 percent votes. The Party just won the Razole seat in the East Godavari region. Party chief Pawan lost two seats he contested. If the election symbol has to be saved then the party should get at least 8 percent votes or win two Assembly seats. Janasena fell short of both parameters.
As it could not get the required votes, Janasena is not a recognized party but just a registered party. With this, the Election Party removed the Glass Tumblr as the election symbol. It is added to the list of free symbols.
A few days back, the election commission allotted the glass Tumblr symbol to Janasena. This made the party leaders happy. Party chief Pawan Kalyan also thanked the Election Commission.
EC allocated tumblr as the party symbol for Janasena for the 32 seats it will contest in Telangana. In the other seats, it would be allocated to independent candidates if they needed to. On the other hand, another party named Jatiya Jana Sena came into the picture. The Election Commission gave the bucket as its election symbol. This is very similar to Janasena's tumblr.
EC allocated the bucket symbol to the Jatiya Jana Sena Party in all the 119 Assembly segments. Janasena party leaders are worried as the party's symbol and name are very similar.
Earlier, the EC granted the symbol to independent candidates which is very similar to BRS's symbol of car. Voters got confused and voted for it. With this, the candidates who contested on the symbol got thousands of votes. With this, the BRS candidates' majority was reduced. With this, the party leaders had written to the election commission.
Janasena, which is a registered party, wants to emerge as the recognized party in the next polls. It needs 8 percent votes. However, someone started a party that has Jana Sena in its name. Not just that, a symbol similar to tumblr was also taken.
Political observers say that the party will not face any issues in Telangana as it has no big popularity in Telangana. However, the party will face issues if the bucket is given as a symbol for other parties and candidates.
