A Shameful Third Position For Pawan Kalyan

Jana Sena perhaps would go down in the history of the Telugu politics as the biggest flop. Katamarayudu, it is now clear as daylight, has failed to click. The most shocking part of the sorry story is that party chief, power star and heartthrob of the youth, Pawan Kalyan has lost from the both the seats he has contested. What more? He stood pitiably third in Gajuwaka, on which the actor had high hopes.

Even Pawan felt that he would win from Gajuwaka if not Bhimavaram. He had focused on Gajuwaka and brought out a special manifesto for the constituency. The massive presence of Kapu votes in Gajuwaka was believed to be helpful. Even pundits predicted a facile win for Pawan in Gajuwaka. Even Chandrababu did his bit by not fielding a strong candidate and not campaigning in Gajuwaka despite repeated requests. Despite all these, Pawan stood a paltry third in Gajuwaka. The TDP stood second and YSRCP's Tippala Nagireddy won the seat.

The third position in an election for a film superstar only shows that part-time politics is injurious to one's career health.
