Hyderabad: Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan on Monday surprised his political opponents on Monday by announcing candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

DMR Shekhar, a retired official of ONGC will contest from Amalapuram constituency and Akula Satyanarayana, a formerly BJP MLA, will contest from Rajahmundry constituency.

Kalyan said he is happy to rope in former ONGC executive director Shekhar as they share the same ideologies. He also expressed happiness that Satyanarayana who won as an MLA on BJP ticket in 2014 polls, has joined his party.

Kalyan declared the party candidates just a day after EC’s announcement of election dates, while the Opposition YSRCP and the Congress remain entangled in a slugfest over the elections issues. The TDP is said to have almost completed the list.

The EC has announced the schedule for the general elections to be held in seven phases and Andhra Pradesh will go for polls in first phase on April 11.
