Will Badvel bypoll mean swansong for the Jana Sena-BJP alliance? Is the BJP trying to stretch things too far? It appears so. Though the Jana Sena has already announced that it is not going to contest the Badvel bypoll, the BjP has said that it would field its candidate and that Pawan Kalyan would campaign for the BJP candidate. Now, how will Pawan Kalyan even campaign for the BJP, when his party is not in the fray?
The Badvel bypoll became necessary due to the untimely death of sitting MLA Dr Venkata Subbaiah. The YSRCP gave the ticket to his wife Dr Sudha. The TDP and the Jana Sena have opted out of the contest honouring the convention of not putting up a candidate when the kin of a deceased MLA or MP contest in the bypoll. Chandrababu has openly said that his party would not contest the bypoll. But the BjP has decided to contest the bypoll.
Not just that, Somu Veerraju said that the BJP would not only contest but that Pawan Kalyan would campaign for the BJP. The question is what if Pawan Kalyan does not campaign for the BJP in Badevel? Will it mean the end of the alliance between the BJP and the Jana Sena? Will it also mean that Somu Veerraju is testing Pawan's intentions? Let's wait and see!!
