Through his pre-election strategies  he has managed to outsmart both the major political rivals Chandra Babu Naidu of Telugu Desam and Jagan Mohan of YSR Congress, the latest being, joining hands with Bahujan Samaj Party headed by Mayawati.

The alliance of BSP  and Jana Sena Party announced by Mayawati, the chief of BSP may well prove to be a tough fight to the other oppositions parties in Andhra Pradesh.

This tie-up will ensure the support of Dalits who are in majority in East and West Godavari districts of Andhra Pradesh. The Kapus who are already strong supporters of Pawan Kalyan and the Dalits now joining in may prove to be a winning strategy because there are 22 constituencies in these 2 districts where the Kapus and Dalits are in a majority.

Pawan Kalyan had earlier met Mayawati, before announcing the alliance. He wants Mayawati to become to Prime Minister while Mayawati in an interview had said that she wants to see Pawan Kalyan as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

There is no dispute in seat sharing either for the assembly or the parliamentary elections between the two. And they also intend to ally with other regional parties and independent candidates who are not from BJP or Congress.

Mayawati is likely to visit Andhra Pradesh, in the month of April, a few days before the elections to campaign for Pawan Kalyan.
