The Telangana State Election Commission today registered Powerstar Pawan Kalyan's Janasena Party as an authorized political party but without a reserved symbol. However, Janasena, if it fields its contestants in any of the upcoming polls, will be given preference over the independent candidates.
This recognition means that Janasena can now contest in elections in Telangana. Already, there have been numerous discussions regarding Janasena contesting the GHMC polls, which are due in December this year. The party is also expected to fight for the Sanath Nagar MLA slot in the upcoming by-elections.
On the other hand, there has been complete silence regarding the future political plans from the party and its President Pawan Kalyan himself. Janasena has almost become non-existent in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, as except for a couple of days of protests regarding forceful land acquisition in Amaravati region, there has been no Janasena voice heard in AP.
