AAP, the Aam Aadmi Party which is currently the ruling party of the Capital City of India, has recently appointed Somnath Bharti as its party in-charge for south zone of Delhi. He visited Tirumala Tirupati to have a Darshan of Lord Venkatateswara. After he had the darshan in the temple, he briefly interacted with the media. During his “media meet”, as usual like any other political leader, he was talking about the strengthening his party in the various parts of the country and also emphasized with his confidence on AAP’s stamina in establishing the party’s identity specifically in South India including Andhra Pradesh.
All of a sudden, a fabulous instance occurred. When Somnath was asked whether his party has any plan to union with Power Star Pawan Kalyan's Jana Sena Party. Somnath instantly replied asking, "Pawan Kalyan........who is he? I didn't even hear his name." This unexpected reaction has made stunned the media persons, after a second of pin drop silence, audience have digested the fact that Somnath has genuinely asked the question.
However, Pawan is not a national figure but his fame in south and his immense fan following cannot be ruled out at all. The only surprieing thing is, being a zonal in-charge of a National Party, Somnath Bharti should have known or at least should have had some knowledge about few influential parties and personalities. When it comes to South, expect, Delhi Chief Minister, Aravind Kejriwal many didn’t who is who in AAP. Somnath might have done enough homework before coming to south and talking about politics. Anyways, as usual telugu people didn’t paid much attention to the news, by the way, who is Somnath Bharti??
