Big setback for Jana Sena, VV Lakshminarayana quits party
Former CBI Joint Director V V Lakshminarayana, who had joined Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena Party (JSP) last year, quit the party on Monday. Lakshminarayana has probed a number of high-profile cases, most prominently the disproportionate assets case against YSRCP chief and Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, among others.
Lakshminarayana had contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections as a Jana Sena candidate from Visakhapatnam, and was one of the key member leaders of JSP. In a letter addressed to JSP chief Pawan Kalyan, Lakshminarayana wrote that his reason for quitting was the actor-turned-politician’s inconsistent words on his commitment to politics and his film career.
