Jana Sena releases final list of candidates

The Jana Sena party has released the final list of candidates to contest the upcoming polls in Andhra Pradesh. The names for 3 Lok Sabha constituencies and 19 Assembly constituencies were declared in the sixth list. 
 
Jana Sena Chief Pawan Kalyan talks about a society devoid of caste, creed and religion but in one of the five lists released earlier, he had given a lion’s share of tickets to persons from a particular community in the twin Godavari districts.
 
Of the 34 Assembly seats in East and West Godavari districts, eight were reserved for SCs and STs. In the remaining 26 general seats, 16 were given to Kapus. Of the five Lok Sabha seats in the two districts, four were given to Kapus and the remaining one was reserved to SCs.
 
The party released its first list of candidates with names for four Lok Sabha and 32 Assembly constituencies. ONGC former executive director D.M.R. Sekhar was chosen for Amalapuram (SC) LS constituency and former MLA Akula Satyanarayana, who had defected from the BJP, was chosen for Rajahmundry Lok Sabha seat.
 
The second list was released after consultations with its allies, the Left parties and BSP.   Though Pawan Kalyan backed the Telangana sentiment during the initial days of his political entry, after bifurcation, he had been raking up the Andhra sentiment, demanding Special Category Status ( SCS) to Andhra Pradesh.
