It’s official now. Five years after Chiranjeevi floated Praja Rajyam Party, his younger brother, actor Pawan Kalyan is all set to do an encore. ‘Janam Kosam Jana Sena’ (for the people) is the name of the new political party floated by actor Pawan Kalyan.
Less than 48 hours to go before the much-touted public appearance by Mr. Kalyan to announce the launch of his party on Friday, the hype is getting bigger and louder notwithstanding the veil of secrecy surrounding its launch. The actor is likely to announce the party symbol, flag and other details at a meeting at HICC on March 14.

While speculations about the ‘Jana Sena’ were doing the rounds in the morning, a press release reached newspaper offices on Wednesday evening confirming the same. It gave out bare details on how Friday evening’s show would be and how Mr. Kalyan would talk about his plans amidst a select gathering of fans numbering about 3,000 in the presence of a media contingent.
“The very name Pawan Kalyan carries vibrations with it. Apart from what is termed a universal power, he stands for sincerity of word and honesty in deed,” the release said.Pawan camp abuzz with activity
