Telugu film-star-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan’s party Jana Sena has decided in an executive meeting held on Sunday that it will soon have its first plenary session, according to media reports. The Hindu reports that the plenary will give finishing touches to its president and actor Pawan Kalyan’s vision.
In July this year, Pawan Kalyan has announced officially that he would be taking the plunge into politics in October. The decision to hold the plenary has been taken ahead of his proposed official entry into politics, possibly setting the stage for it. Since his announcement, has been recruiting analysts, content writers and speakers who would take the party’s philosophy to the masses, as The Hindu points out.
TNIE reports that a few key decisions will be taken at the plenary, and they include kicking off a membership drive and how to strengthen the party at the grassroot level.
The party top brass also discussed a plan for Pawan Kalyan to visit different parts of the two Telugu states.
Pawan Kalyan had earlier said that the party has identified 32 issues like land acquisition, mining and agriculture and has launched a website to get people's views on every issue for formulating the party policies.
Pawan, younger brother of Telugu superstar K. Chiranjeevi, had floated the party ahead of the 2014 assembly elections. He did not contest the polls but campaigned for the BJP-TDP alliance.
Pawan, who had shared dais with the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi and TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu, distanced himself from the organisation after the BJP-led NDA government denied Andhra Pradesh special category status.
The actor had since been targeting both the parties for going back on the poll promise. He, however, said he believed in constructive criticism.
