Senior comedian Ali has been showcasing his Political interest since the 2009 elections but no party encouraged him. In 2014, he tried hard for Rajahmundry MP ticket but got a negative answer from the TDP Chief. However, this time, the Opposition party has come to this actor’s rescue.
Despite being the best friend for the Janasena Chief Pawan Kalyan, Ali didn’t approach the JSP for a ticket. Instead, he held talks with both TDP and YSRCP for a long time. As TDP is completely occupied and competitors are heavy, YS Jagan decided to field in Ali as one of his leaders. According to the sources close to YSRCP, Jagan okayed Ali’s entry into the party and assured him of either MLA or MP ticket from one of the Rajahmundry or Mandapeta Constituencies. However, YSRCP leaders state that their boss is interested in making Ali a Parliamentarian than risking an MLA seat in his name. So it is obvious that Ali may end up contesting as an MP from the Rajahmundry segment under YSRCP ticket. Being born and raised in Rajahmundry, Ali will get decent votes along with the Jagan vote bank. But the tough competition from TDP and JSP might be a trouble for his comedian.
Ali’s decision appeared shocking to many of Pawan Kalyan’s fans. Known for a die-hard supporter of Pawan Kalyan, now he ended up as an opponent to Janasena party in East Godavari district.
