With the new faces joining the party every passing day, Pawan Kalyan got into action building up the party and forming committees. On Thursday, Pawan Kalyan had formed the committees for six Lok Sabha constituencies of Viziangaram, Araku, Anakapalli, Kakinada, Amalapuram and Eluru Lok Sabha constituencies. The committees for Rajamahendravaram, Narsapuram and Visakhapatnam were already formed and by now, the Jana Sena has committees for 9 Lok Sabha constituencies out of 25.
Pawan Kalyan is on a mission to complete the formation of the committees for all the 25 the Parliamentary Constituencies in the next couple of days and gear up the ranks for the polls.
Meanwhile, the Jana Sena had a surprise the other day with V Pon Raj, who was the advisor to late A P J Abdul Kalam, had joined the party. Pawan Kalyan, while welcoming Pon Raj to the party, had appointed him as member of the party’s advisory council.
Pon Raj from Tamil Nadu is a defence scientist and worked as technology interface director. He served as technical advisor to Abdul Kalam when he was the President of India. Though he was a defence scientist, Pon Raj followed the footprints of Abdul Kalam for two decades. He was making efforts to take the ideology of Abdul Kalam to the younger generations and implementing his ideals in educational institutions. He strongly believes that politics could be cleansed only through the young leadership. He was striving hard on his mission for proper utilization of human power and developing the young people as skilled technocrats.
Pon Raj said there must be social perceptive to ensure integrated economic development. Every State has plenty of resources on par with developed nations. “The AP State has young skilled manpower and resources, but it required a strong and committed leader to exploit these resources effectively. It was a need of the hour for the State to have a leader like Pawan Kalyan,” said Pon Raj.
