The Bahujan Samaj Party on Friday joined hands with superstar-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan's Jana Sena for Andhra Pradesh assembly elections.

BSP supremo Mayawati announced that the seats have already been finalized between the parties. She said, "It will be great to see Pawan as AP chief minister. We will soon be beginning our campaign."

Reciprocating to Mayawati Pawan Kalyan said, “We would like to see Behen ji Mayawati ji as the Prime Minister of our country, this is our wish and our ardent desire.”

Just a day before Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena released the first list of contestants for four of the 25 Lok Sabha and 32 of the 175 assembly constituencies in Andhra Pradesh.

Pawan will contest from the Gajuwaka Assembly seat of Visakhapatnam of Andhra Pradesh in the upcoming Assembly elections and not from Anantapuram as was announced earlier. Gajuwaka was once a stronghold of the Praja Rajyam Party and so party workers insisted that the popular face must fight the polls there. He is also said to be popular with the youth there.
