Janasena party chief Pawan Kalyan received a jolt when former minister Ravela Kishore Babu, who unsuccessfully contested in Andhra Pradesh Assembly elections on Janasena party ticket from Prathipadu in the Guntur district resigned from the party.
In his resignation letter, Ravela mentioned that he was quitting the party due to his personal problems. After bidding an adieu to Janasena party, Ravela called on State BJP president Kanna Laxminarayana and closeted with him for some time.
Meanwhile, speculations are rife with the reports of the two-time MLA from Tenali, Nadendla Manohar, son of former Chief Minister Nadendla Bhaskar Rao, would quit Janasena Party. Absence of Manohar, who lost the election from Tenali, in Pawan Kalyan's meetings after the poll result trigged these rumors.
However, Nadendla Manohar is said to be discontented with these reports. He clarified saying he couldn’t attend the meeting as he was in USA. “Few are purposely spreading rumors. I’m not quitting Janasena Party. I couldn’t attend the meeting as I was in USA,” clarified Manohar.
Earlier, Janasena Party also clarified on the matter stating, Nadendla Manohar is not quitting the party. As per sources, Manohar wants to continue in the party, at any circumstance. “Manohar became very close to Pawan Kalyan. The Party chief also gives utmost importance to Nadendla. Moreover, Manohar hopes Janasena will do wonder in next elections in 2020. He is willing to work hard to strengthen the party,” says the source.
