That's why I am not contesting from Anantapur: Pawan

Pawan Kalyan has given an interview to an English-language portal.  In it, the Jana Sena chief has talked about why he is not contesting from Anantapur, which was always his first choice.

"I wanted to contest from there but I don't have a team which can work on the ground.  There is no team there to take care of my campaign.  Also, contesting from Bhimavaram is convenient logistically," Pawan says.  

Does he see himself as a kingmaker after the May 23rd results?  "I don't believe in the concept of kings and kingmakers.  I believe in social transformation," Pawan replies.

"I am confident that the crowds attending Jana Sena rallies will definitely be our voters.  I saw it in 2009 in the case of PRP," Pawan adds.
