    In Vijayawada, the Jana Sena Party (JSP) announced candidates for 18 Assembly segments in Andhra Pradesh. However, dissent grew among its cadres who are now considering quitting the party or not supporting the candidate in the TDP-BJP-JSP alliance.

    Vijayawada West is one of the seats that the JSP sacrificed for its alliance partner, the BJP. Pothina Venkata Mahesh, who was active in the area for the last five years, was initially considered for a ticket. But when BJP MP Sujana Chowdary entered the picture, Mahesh’s chances started to fade. There are speculations that Chowdary might be allotted the Vijayawada West Assembly seat, leading to Mahesh’s followers going on a hunger strike demanding a ticket for him.

    In Giddalur of Prakasam district, Amanchi Swamulu, who was hoping for a ticket from the JSP, decided to contest as an independent candidate after not receiving a ticket or meeting with party founder Pawan Kalyan.
