Pavan kalyan Gives it a miss
Amidst all the big show that was put up to mark the merger of Praja Rajyam Party with the Congress, one key person was conspicuous by his absence: Pavan Kalyan!The “Power Star” was nowhere to be seen though the other family members of megastar Chiranjeevi including his brother-in-law Allu Aravind and Nagababu took the baptism into Congress.
They were presented with Congress Kanduvas and welcomed into the party amidst cheers from the gathering at Gandhi Bhavan, the State Congress headquarters. After Praja Rajyam Party’s poor performance in the 2009 elections, Pavan went into a shell and kept himself away from the political activity. Though he was the president of the party’s youth wing, the actor hardly showed any interest in its work. Instead, he resumed his focus on film career.
It is also said that Pavan was not in favour of PRP merging with the Congress. He detested the idea of losing the political identity and embracing Congress culture. In fact, Pavan had made strident attack on Congress during his elections speeches before the 2009 polls. He had called upon people to beat up the corrupt Congress leaders and disrobe them publicly.
The failure on his part to turn up at Gandhi Bhavan shows that he has still not reconciled to the idea of merging with Congress.
