HYDERABAD: Mercurial Pawan Kalyan's decision to jump on to the political bandwagon in haste has resulted in problems for his party with the Election Commission of India (EC). Pawan Kalyan has applied to the EC for naming his outfit as 'Jana Sena Party' but the actor has got a shocker. Procedures to register a political party take at least three to four months and Pawan Kalyan simply does not have that much time as elections to the Lok Sabha and state assembly have already been announced. The election notification for Telangana will be issued on April 2, 2014 and for Seemandhra on April 12, 2013. Elections in Telangana will be held on April 30 and in Seemandhra on May 7.

Election Commission sources in Delhi told The Times of India when contacted from Hyderabad that there was no party with the name 'Jana Sena Party' registered with the EC. Official sources, however, said an application had been made for registration of the party on March 10, 2014. Merely submitting an application does not mean that the party is registered as there are other procedures to be followed. In addition, a one-month notice for registration of a new political party is to be issued in the newspaper. This, in effect, means that the 44-year-old Pawan Kalyan's new party cannot get a new name from the EC.

Getting 'Jana Sena Party' is also out of question as there is no party registered with that name for the Tollywood actor to at least get under its wings or take it over like how Y S Jaganmohan Reddy took over the already registered YSR Pary and Kiran Kumar Reddy got 'Jai Samaikhyandhra Party'.

Pawan Kalyan went public with his party name 'Jana Sena Party' on Wednesday with a new facebook page. "This is the official page of Jana Sena Political Party owned by renowned actor from Tollywood - Pawan Kalyan," the 'About' info on the page said describing the party as a political organisation. A technicolour picture of an angry Pawan Kalyan stares at one from the page. A folded fist with the description "Pawanism4change" also appears on the page. By afternoon the page got more than 10,000 likes. "Leadership is action, Not a position," his page reads which also has the hashtag JanaSena4Change.

The actor has made arrangements to go live on March 14, 2014 at 6.30 pm from Hitex at Madhpur in Hyderabad. His 45-minute speech, it is said, will be telecast live and also webcast.

Efforts are being made to project Pawan Kalyan look like another Che Guevera, the Argentinian Marxist revolutionary who lived from 1928-1967.

Pawan Kalyan is younger brother of Union minister of state for tourism Chiranjeevi who merged his Praja Rajyam Party (PRP) with the Congress. Pawan Kalyan had supported his brother during his PRP days but fell out with him subsequently.

While Pawan Kalyan's coterie and some die-hard fans seem to be excited about the actor's political entry, by and large the Telugu film industry has been lukewarm to his idea of jumping into into politics. In fact, some have gone to the extent of openly suggesting that he refrain from getting into politics.
