Jana Sena President Pawan Kalyan on Thursday said that his party would contest the upcoming Assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh in an alliance with the left parties, the CPI and CPM.
He said that he would not have any kind of alliance with any other political parties.
He made this statement through his Twitter account.
The statement of the actor-turned-politician assumes importance in the wake of a call given by the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) boss Chandrababu Naidu to the actor that he (Kalyan) should join hands with the TDP in the upcoming elections.
Addressing a public meeting in his Assembly constituency Kuppam, Naidu had said that as the actor had already stated that the Centre had done grave injustice to AP, it would be appropriate for him to join hands with the TDP to fight the elections.
Reacting to that, Kalyan clarified that his party would contest the elections in all the 175 constituencies in alliance with the Left parties, and urged the party workers not to believe the words of the ruling and the Opposition parties.
He also said that the party would give high priority in the allotment of seats to the youth and the women.
