BJP leader Rama Kotaiah supported Vas Dev's being the strategist of Janasena. But TDP leader Chandu Sambasiva Rao said, BJP strategist Prashant Kishore becoming YCP strategist has raised doubts in many. He said, the rumours on Janasena party are also cleared with Dev's entry, saying it could never be co-incidental. Political analyst expressed his opinion that Prashant Kishore is a professional where as Dev is a BJP leader who irked both BJP & Janasena right from day 1 by concealing the facts that he is a BJP member and he knows Telugu being a local. Leaders said both BJP & Dev should give clarity over Dev's continuation in BJP.
