Except Pawan Kalyan led JanaSena party, the other parties including TDP and YSRCP distributed money to voters in recent General Elections, former MP Undavalli Arun Kumar said.
Former MP (Member of Parliament) Undavalli Arun Kumar on Sunday (21st of April) in an interview with a leading Telugu news channel alleged that leaders of N. Chandrababu Naidu led Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy led YSR Congress party (YSRCP) distributed money to voters of Andhra Pradesh during 2019 elections.
“Except Pawan Kalyan led JanaSena party, the other parties including TDP and YSRCP distributed money to voters to gain votes,” Undavalli said.
Mr. Undavalli also said, “according to the information I got from the sources, Pawan Kalyan reportedly took a decision and said his party leaders that money distribution would not be allowed in the election.”
Mr. Undvalli further said, “since Pawan Kalyan was against ‘money distribution to voters’, I can’t predict how much vote bank his party will accumulate.”
JanaSena went to polls in all 25 parliamentary and 175 assembly constituencies spread over 13 districts in Andhra Pradesh.
Pawan Kalyan’s JanaSena went to poll with CPI, CPM and BSP. Janasena as part of an alliance deal with the CPI, CPI-M and the BSP, the party allocated 2, 2 and 3 Lok Sabha seats respectively.
It also gave 7 assembly seats to CPI, 7 assembly seats to CPM, and 21 assembly constituencies to BSP.
