The chances of film actor and Jana Sena Party president Pawan Kalyan becoming Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh in the near future took a nosedive after the Telugu Desam Party national general secretary Nara Lokesh declared that his father and party president N. Chandrababu Naidu would be CM in the event of the opposition parties of TDP, Jana Sena, along with the BJP managing to dislodge the ruling YSR Congress Party led by YS Jaganmohan Reddy in the coming elections.

In a recent interview to a YouTube channel, Lokesh said there was no question of sharing the CM’s gaddi by TDP and JSP and Chandrababu would be Chief Minister for five years. After all, Pawan Kalyan himself had remarked that the state needed an astute leader at the helm and there is no better choice than his father for the post, Lokesh stated.
