The leaders of the Jana Sena Party, Pawan Kalyan, and Telugu Desam, Chandrababu Naidu, have released their first list of 118 candidates for the Andhra Pradesh assembly elections. The TDP will contest 94 seats, while the Jana Sena will contest 24. According to them, the latter will also compete for three of the state’s 25 Lok Sabha seats.

The possibility of the BJP continuing to work together to form an alliance was left open by both leaders. “When there are developments on the BJP front, we will update you on the decisions taken,” said Naidu.

Simultaneous elections are planned for 175 assembly seats and 25 parliament seats in Andhra Pradesh.

More than two weeks ago, Mr. Naidu met with JP Nadda and Amit Shah, the leaders of the BJP, in Delhi. It is the hope of Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan that all three parties unite to take on the ruling YSRCP.

Pawal Kalyan and Chandrababu Naidu’s alliance has released a list of 118 names that were allegedly crowdsourced.

1 crore people contributed their names to the crowdsourcing process for the names. Mr. Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party, or TDP, is fielding the most new candidates, indicating a significant change in the state’s politics.

“This groundbreaking list of 118 nominees marks a significant shift in Andhra Pradesh’s political landscape, embodying an unprecedented infusion of fresh faces, youth candidates, representation from the BC (Backward Classes) community, and women candidates,” said the TDP in a statement.

Addressing a press conference at Undavalli, TDP Chief N Chandrababu Naidu said, “TDP-JSP is ready for election war. This alliance is for the state’s future and the brighter future of Andhra Pradesh.”

The list contains 28 candidates with post-graduate degrees, 50 candidates with graduate degrees, 3 doctors, 2 PhDs, and 1 IAS Officer.

“This candidate selection process stands as a testament to the power of the masses, as it has been prepared after considering the opinion of more than 1 crore 3 lakh 33 thousand people. By embracing crowdsourcing, the TDP-JSP alliance aims to decentralize power, placing the aspirations and voices of the people of Andhra at the forefront of their political agenda,” said the statement.

Chandrababu Naidu maintained that the Jagan Reddy-led ruling YSRCP has given out names through camp offices, while the TDP-JSP list is “not only inclusive but also revolutionary”.
