Andhra Pradesh Elections: Jana Sena gets thumbs down in exit polls

Soon as the last phase of polling ended on Sunday evening, all the television channels aired the exit polls. All the channels have shown that the exit polls predicted one more term for Narendra Modi, at the centre. 
Coming to Andhra Pradesh, as expected, being a tough fight, the exit polls were a mixed bag, divided between the YSR Congress and the Telugu Desam Party.  The exit polls also predicted the rout of Nara Lokesh, son of AP Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, ho contested from the Mangalagiri Assembly constituency.
However, there is one common pattern in all the exit polls and that is the Jana Sena’s performance in the elections. No survey predicted even a remotest chance for JSP’s victory. The hopes of party candidates former joint director, CBI, V.V. Lakshminarayana and Naga Babu entering the corridors of the Parliament appear to be very bleak.
The surveys also did not talk about any chance for JSP chief Pawan Kalyan to win both of the seats. All the surveys gave Jana Sena not more than five seats. This means the JSP’s performance is not even comparable to Chiranjeevi’s Praja Rajyam Party.
If the exit polls are anything to go by, Jana Sena may barely survive to be in contention for 2024 polls. The poll results may even tempt Pawan Kalyan to go back to films, the only place where he has some significance.
