Is Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan planning to put off his proposed state-wide bus yatra? If Jana Sena sources are to be believed, Pawan is said to be mulling postponement of the proposed yatra. Pawan Kalyan wanted to take up this yatra from Vijayadasami day. However, he is said to be having second thoughts about the timing.

Sources close to Pawan Kalyan say that given the political situation in the state, there seems to be no possibility of early polls in Andhra Pradesh.  They point out that Jagan Mohan Reddy, who toyed with the idea of early elections , now believes that early polls could prove counter-productive. He  feels that he may have to manage adverse perceptions about his government first and then go for elections.

This being the case, there is no point in Pawan Kalyan going ahead with the bus yatra, feel Jana Sena's thinking heads. They feel that the impact of the yatra would be neutralised if the elections are held in 2024. So, it is better to wait for some more time and launch the yatra at the most opportune time, they argue.

Meanwhile, sources say that Pawan Kalyan would finish all the film projects on hand before June next year. After that, he would be fully focused on politics. The yatra would cover all the 26 districts, say party sources. The party also feels that defeating the YSRCP is the first priority of the Jana Sena.
