Pawan Kalyan, who stormed out of his elder brother Chiranjeevi’s shadow to set up his own party Janasena prior to the Lok Sabha elections early this year, finally got recognition for his party from the Election Commission paving way for his foray into party politics.
Pawan Kalyan, who campaigned for BJP-TDP combine pending EC nod, is setting his eyes on forthcoming panchayat elections in both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Janasena party said in a statement:
“The Election Commission of India has given registration to the ‘Janasena Party’ as a political party Under Section 29A of the Representation of the People Act,1951 with effect from 24.11.2014 vide Registration Number 56/118/2014/PPS-I dated 28.11.2014.”
Setting aside objections, the Election Commssion “has also indicated the facility of availing of Common Symbol under provisions of paragraph 10B of the Symbols (Reservation and Allotment) Order,” said the party.
Pawan Kalyan, 43, younger brother of former Union Minister and actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi, had campaigned for Chandrababu Naidu and Narendra Modi and shared the stage with them in undivided Andhra Pradesh for the general elections.
