Years after Pawan Kalyan floated the Jana Sena party, he has come into his own as an anti-TDP voice in Andhra Pradesh. He is no longer the ruling party's friend. His Uttarandhra tour has been a significant one.
It is in this backdrop that we have to see some of the calculated attempts to subject him to 'badnam'. Mudslinging about his personal life has always been there against him. In fact, it was this kind of politicization of his personal life that prompted him to marry his live-in partner Renu Desai after the launch of Praja Rajyam Party.
But bad naming him on the basis of his personal life is going to get murkier. In recent times, Poonam Kaur has been a prime voice through cryptic tweets.
Kathi Mahesh, too, was seen till recently as the agent of Pawan's rivals. But there has been a compromise between him and Jana Sainiks.
And most recently, his ex-wife Renu has started throwing subtle hints about Pawan's dishonesty in personal life. The buzz is that the ruling TDP is keen on highlighting his personal life more now. But Pawan Kalyan seems to be prepared for all this. He is going all out against the ruling TDP.
