In Andhra Pradesh, next year’s legislative assembly elections are on the horizon, and Pawan Kalyan, announcing an alliance between his Jan Sena party and former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu‘s Telugu Desam Party (TDP), made a reference to Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSRCP, saying they “cannot tolerate YSRCP.”

On Thursday, actor-politician Pawan Kalyan announced an alliance between his Jan Sena party and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) led by former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu. This comes after Naidu was sent to Rajamundry jail for two weeks earlier this week following his arrest in connection with an alleged Rs. 371 crore scam. His son, Nara Lokesh, and son-in-law, Nandamuri Balakrishna, joined Kalyan in criticizing the Andhra Pradesh government regarding what they termed as “unjust arrest.”

He said, “Today, I have decided that the Jan Sena and Telugu Desam will contest the upcoming elections together. It’s not about our party’s political future… it’s about the future of Andhra Pradesh.”

Kalyan and Balakrishna visited Naidu in jail on Wednesday. The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Wednesday ruled that Naidu’s wife’s house arrest, which came after security concerns, should be revoked.

On Wednesday, the Andhra Pradesh Crime Investigation Department (CID) reiterated its confidence that Naidu is the prime accused in this case; he was initially listed as accused number 37.

This case pertains to the establishment of centers of excellence (CEOs) in the state, with a total estimated project cost of ₹3,300 crore, but allegedly causing a loss of over ₹300 crore to the state. The CID argues that, prior to any expenditure by private firms, the former government had provided an initial amount of ₹371 crore – which represented the government’s full 10 percent commitment.

The CID has stated that the investigation has prima facie revealed that the then government’s head and its top executive, Mr. Naidu, had masterminded the entire scheme.
