Jana Sena party founder and Telugu film actor Pawan Kalyan is expected to meet BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in Ahmedabad tomorrow.
Kalyan, the youngest brother of Union Minister of State for Tourism K Chiranjeevi, launched Jana Sena here on March 14 with the call "Congress hatao desh bachao," echoing what Modi had been campaigning for over the past few months.
The actor-turned-politician also said he was ready to join hands with any party to oust Congress from power.
Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu had invited Kalyan to join hands with him in the endeavour even as speculation did the rounds in the state that TDP-BJP-Jana Sena alliance might happen soon.
Though sources close to Kalyan said they were not aware of the actual purpose of his visit to Ahmedabad, they confirmed that he would be meeting the Gujarat Chief Minister.
"What will be the point of their discussion is not known to us," a close aide of Kalyan said.
However, going by talk in political circles here, Kalyan will take up the alliance proposal with Modi.
Meanwhile, Chiranjeevi said he would have to treat his youngest brother as a "political rival".
"As a brother, my blessings will always be there for Kalyan, but as a political leader, he will be treated as any other rival," Chiranjeevi said here today.
Kalyan, like any other person, too would have thoughts and emotions towards the society.
"We should not restrain anyone from expressing their emotions," the Union Minister remarked.

Bison's watering hole

Once upon a time, the tricity's most sought after watering hole at the Chandigarh Golf Club bore a strong character and historical profile. Pictures of legendary players had adorned the walls. A massive Indian bison head mounted at a prime location of the bar's walls complemented the pictures and presided over the cheery spirit of the late evenings. The pictures depicted the sport's great icons playing varied shots from beautiful locales across the world. Vikram Jit Singh
