Days after he had announced that his party would not contest the upcoming polls so as not to split anti-Congress vote, Jana Sena Party founder and film actor Pawan Kalyan is understood to be contemplating to filed his party nominees at least for five to seven seats in Seemandhra in the ensuing general polls. According to sources, following the allotment of Vijayawada Lok Sabha seat to TDP leader Kesineni Srinivas alias Nani, Pawan Kalyan reportedly developed second thoughts on keeping away from the fray.
As his close aide and industrialist Potluri Vara Prasad is keen on contesting the Vijayawada LS seat, the Jana Sena boss is learnt to be mulling over giving Prasad the go ahead to file nomination as an independent.
Sources said Pawan Kalyan was upset over the TDP leadership rejecting his request to allot Vijayawada LS seat to Vara Prasad. It is learnt this is the only seat that Pawan had asked from the TDP in lieu of his support for the TDP-BJP combine.
The Jana Sena chief held lengthy discussions with his party leaders, who want to be in the electoral fray, including Potluri Vara Prasad, at the party office here on Wednesday.
Emerging from the meeting, Vara Prasad told scribes that they would take a final call on the issue by Thursday.
