Actor-turned-politician and Jana Sena Chief Pawan Kalyan is going to contest from the Gajuwaka Assembly seat of Visakhapatnam in the upcoming Andhra Pradesh Assembly elections. Sources say that Pawan has been under pressure from his party cadre and leaders to contest from Gajuwaka, which was once a stronghold of the Praja Rajyam Party after its candidate won the elections in 2009.
Additionally, they believe that there is a likelihood of a win in Gajuwaka as the youth of the place seem to be followers of the actor-turned –politician.
After repeated requests from the party cadres and the leaders, Pawan Kalyan is reported to have agreed to have agreed to contest from Gajuwaka and is likely to announce his decision soon.
His participation from Gajuwaka is expected to give a boost to the party nominees in North Andhra.
