Retired IAS officer former chief secretary of Tamil Nadu P Ramamohan Rao had joined the Jana Sena in the presence of the party chief Pawan Kalyan. The Jana Sena chief had made Ramamohan Rao the party’s political advisor.
Pawan Kalyan praised the administrative qualities of Ramamohan Rao, who was the chief secretary of Tamil Naidu when the State was in deep political and administrative crisis. He was in the office when chief minister Jayalalithaa was in the hospital and the ruling AIADMK was having big political trouble. The State was poised for a major outbreak of law and order with Jayalalithaa spending her last days in the hospital.
The Jana Sena chief expressed confidence that the presence of Ramamohan Rao would help Jana Sena grow strong and reach out to the people ahead of the elections. Pawan Kalyan thanked Ramamohan Rao to spend his time for Jana Sena, which was formed to work for the overall development of the State and welfare of the people, unlike the existing political parties.
While thanking Pawan Kalyan for appointing him as political advisor, Ramamohan Rao said “When the people of the state are strongly looking for a messiah to protect them, Pawan Kalyan entered politics.” He further said that the unfulfilled aspirations of the people and the historical needs of the State have forced Pawan Kalyan to launch the political party and join the service of the people, leaving the film industry, where the hero was comfortable and successful.
The 1985 batch IAS officer had served under the leadership of M Karunanidhi and Jayalalithaa in Tamil Nadu, before his retirement after the death of Jayalalithaa. He said he is now ready to work for Jana Sena and see that the party wrest power in the State. “I will do my best to live up to the expectations of Pawan Kalyan. I will hold the responsibilities given to me and be available for the party,” Ramamohan Rao said.
Meanwhile, Pawan Kalyan is busy building the party Parliamentary Constituency Committees in the two Telugu States. He is also interacting with the leaders across, gearing them up for the impending elections.
