Janasena President Pawan Kalyan had earlier announced that he will be contesting from any seat in Anantapur District. He later toured Uttarandhra and also made a similar claim he will contest from there. So, there are several speculations about his contest.
While Janasena sources are mum about the seat from where he will contest, there are rumours in Uttarandhra that he will be contesting from Pendurthi Assembly Segment. Bandaru Satyanarayana Murthy from TDP is the current MLA.
Pawan Kalyan has made severe Corruption allegations on the MLA and his son in the constituency during his Janasena Porata Yatra. The MLA also gave a strong retort. On the other side, Pawan Kalyan will tour Godavari Districts next.
