Hyderabad | 17th March 2019
Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan announced that as part of the electoral alliance with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), the latter would be allowed to compete for three Lok Sabha and 21 Assembly seats (without any competitors from the Jana Sena, that is) in the upcoming Lok Sabha and Assembly elections on April 11.
The Tirupati, Chittoor and Bapatla Parliamentary constituencies have been allotted to the BSP.
The Jana Sena chief had detailed discussions with BSP Rajya Sabha member Veer Singh at the Jana Sena office in Vijayawada today, and made the announcement to the media at the end of it. After announcing the seat-sharing details, Kalyan said that he was happy to work with the BSP. He said that the BSP leadership had long back given him an offer to work as its AP president, but that he could not oblige at that time due to the political circumstances then. He said that it was several people's wish to see Mayawati as Prime Minister, and that he was one among them.
Kalyan said that many people were unable to understand Mayawati's "personality and greatness", and that as far as he was concerned, she was equal to his mother. He said that Mayawati and he had discussed many issues such as how to develop the State and how to eradicate unemployment during his last visit to Lucknow, and that her hospitality was extremely warm.
