Following the conclusion of polling for Andhra Pradesh assembly, both the Telugu Desam Party headed by chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu and YSR Congress party headed by Y S Jaganmohan Reddy are expressing confidence, at least for the public consumption, that they would come to power in the state.
The Bharatiya Janata Party has conceded defeat as its official spokesman G V L Narasimha Rao said YSRC is going to win the elections and BJP would replace the TDP as the main opposition in the next five years. The Congress is nowhere in the picture at all.
What is surprising is the silence being maintained by power star and Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan, who boasted earlier that his party would come to power in the elections.
He quietly went to the Dasavathara Venkateshwara temple at Mangalagiri and paid obeisance to the god. He served food to the devotees and also carried offering to the god.
Interestingly, Pawan, who had been sporting long hair and bushy beard, was found with a neat haircut and beard completely removed. He got back his filmy look though he appeared to have a little chubby face.
However, what was glaringly visible in his face was a philosophical look. Just before he visited the temple and had a haircut and shave, some photos released by party showing him sitting alone and listening to radio at his Mangalagiri party office clearly depicted that he was looking sad and philosophical.
Apparently, Pawan is reconciled to the fact that Jana Sena Party has failed to make any impact on the electorate and it might not win even half a dozen seats.
He is trying to put a composed look, but it is time for him to make some serious introspection as to whether politics is his cup of tea or not.
May be, he comes out with his stand soon after the results.
