Pawan, who launched Jana Sena last week, will meet senior BJP leaders in the national capital on Tuesday.

He is likely to hold talks with BJP president Rajnath Singh and senior leaders Lal Krishna Advani and Sushma Swaraj. Pawan, who is the younger brother of Congress leader and Union Minister K Chiranjeevi, will then fly to Ahmedabad to meet BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.

The alliance may lead to a new political alignment in Andhra Pradesh as talks are already on between the BJP and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) for seat adjustment. The three parties may join hands to contest polls to the Lok Sabha and state Assembly.

The actor, who launched his political outfit on March 14, criticized the Congress for dividing Andhra Pradesh but spared BJP and TDP. Pawan had earlier declared that he was ready to join hands with any party except the Congress.

Both BJP and TDP reportedly sent feelers to Pawan for an alliance. They believe the young star would help them attract voters, especially the youth in Seemandhra or residuary Andhra Pradesh.

While unveiling the policy and programme, Pawan was not clear if he and his party would contest the coming elections. He indicated that building the party would be a long-drawn exercise.

Jana Sena is reportedly keen to contest five Lok Sabha and 30 Assembly seats both in Seemandhra and Telangana.
