Pawan Kalyan's Party Gets Glass Tumbler as Poll Symbol, Twitter Says Cheers
Pawan Kalyan ended speculations over his possible alliance with YSRCP led by YS Jaganmohan Reddy.

Actor and political aspirant Pawan Kalyan, who is the chief of the Jana Sena Party which will be contesting the 2019 elections, celebrated his party being alloted a poll symbol - a glass tumbler - by the country's Election Commission.

Kalyan took to his Twitter account to thank the Election Commission for alotting him the ubiquitously Indian symbol, writing, 'My wholehearted thanks to ‘Election commission’ for giving us ‘Glass Tumbler’ as our Party symbol. Personally for me that ‘Glass Tumbler’ has many memories from my childhood and it’s common man’ s identity in our country.' (sic)

Given that the diminutive, ridged glass is a common sight across the country, present everywhere from train stations to roadside dhabas to chaiwallas ensconced at street corners.

The actor's fans were quick to see the glass as half-full and as representative of the transparency and honesty that they believe the Janasena Party will espouse. "Vote for glass" began trending on the microblogging site soon enough.
