It is known that the demise of former Chief Minister Nedurumalli Janardhan Reddy has left a Rajya Sabha seat in Seemandhra vacant. Upon receiving the indictions from Centre, TDP President Chandrababu Naidu has decided to offer this seat for the alliance partner BJP. Sources say, Jana Sena Chief Pawan Kalyan and BJP Leader Daggubati Purandeswari are said to be in race for this Rajya Sabha seat.
Purandeswari contested as BJP candidate from Rajampet Lok Sabha constituency. A section of party leaders feel it would be a nice gesture if she was nominated to Rajya Sabha for putting a brave fight in a segment where YSRC is too strong.
Meanwhile, Majority of the BJP Leaders were of the feeling Pawan Kalyan would be the right choice as he was the prime reason for the victory of NDA in Seemandhra. BJP state-level leaders believe this move would ensure long term alliance with Jana Sena. They were, however, clueless if Pawan accepts such posts or not.
Sources say, Modi himself would be appealing Pawan Kalyan to join NDA Government if BJP prefers him over the former Union Minister. What will be the reaction of Powerstar in such situation?
