Nellore: Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan said his party would promote leaders, who mingled with people by throwing aside family politics. “People are being suffocated with political family dynasties as they were not being protected under their governance,” he said.He was addressing a large gathering of party men at a marriage hall during his visit to Nellore on Monday.
There were the families of Nedurumilli, Magunta and Anam, but they could not live up to the expectations of the young generation as people’s representatives. Politics in Nellore was confined to certain families and fresh blood had to enter into politics to change the political setup, he said. Otherwise, leaders would neglect people’s welfare, he added.
He appealed to the leaders not to join his party considering 2019 elections in mind but join the party if they were prepared for 25 years of struggle.
The Jana Sena president also called upon the youth to strengthen his hands to create a strong future for them. Mr Pawan Kalyan said the thought of Jana Sena party’s key and first principle of merging all the castes was generated from the unity of castes in Nellore district. He said he entered into politics inspired by the thoughts of the great leader Puchalapalli Sundaraiah, who removed the suffix in his name saying that all castes were equal for him.
Sundaraiah was a leader of the masses who believed that society should be in a better position beyond the caste system and he actively participated in the Telangana armed struggle though he was in no way connected with the region.
A leader should treat all castes and religions and regions as equal. Stating that people of Nellore district were politically aware, he said he was not nervous about giving a speech in America, but he was a little nervous to deliver a speech in Nellore, because he had grown up in Nellore. He said that he may be a “powerful star or Janasenani for the outside world,” but as far as Nellore was concerned, he was just Kalyan.
Mr Pawan Kalyan said he had no ambition to become an MLA or MP. If that was the case, he would have contested from Nellore in 2009 as he had relatives, friends and close associates here. But he believed politics required more knowledge and experience to influence crores of people. Hence, he had been in a fighting mode against the problems being faced by people without contesting in the elections, he said and asserted that 2019 was the year for Jana Sena party....
