Rajahmundry urban MLA Akula Satynarayana, who had won on BJP ticket with TDP’s support in 2014, has resigned to his party. He is likely to join Pawan Kalyan’s Janasena very soon. It is learnt that Akula is in touch with Pawan and his team and has got clear assurance. Akula is planning to join Janasena in the presence of Pawan on 21st January.
Although Akula was in BJP, he had been maintaining cordial relation with Janasena. He had earlier celebrated Pawan Kalyan’s birthday on 2nd September in Rajahmundry with fanfare.
Akula had been facing a lot of ire from people. The development in Rajahmundry city isn’t as expected. A lot of problems are still persistent as Akula failed to address. Be it supply of drinking water or disbursement of pensions to people in his constituency or housing to poor, Akula have failed to deliver. All these are working against him.
Now, Akula is planning to join Janasena and hoping to bank on Pawan’s individual charisma.
Meanwhile, TDP’s sr leader and Rajahmundry rural MLA Gorantla Butchaiah Chowdary is likely to move to Rajahmundry urban constituency in the coming elections. Akula’s resignation to BJP is seen as a setback to Lotus party. One has to wait and see, whether Akula would be helpful to Janasena or not.
