Some of his recent actions have completely put off his supporters. For instance, Pawan had appointed Ramachandra Rao, who rebelled against the official candidate and contested as an independent from Tanuku, as the party's constituency incharge for Tanuku. Protesting against this, senior leader and district level functionary Pasupuleti Rama Rao has resigned from the party.
Even meeting Pawan Kalyan is not that easy for the party leaders. A small coterie around Pawan is making things difficult for the party leaders. One of the biggest resentments is Pawan's decision to make former AP Assembly speaker Nadendla Manohar as the political affairs committee chief. Many leaders have resigned the party in protest against this decision.
