Telangana CM KSR to meet Mamata over alternative front

Indicating their eagerness to strike a nationwide anti-BJP alliance Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR) is likely to meet his Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee on Monday, sources said. We are not in a hurry. We have good relations with all political parties.

KCR said it was only the "beginning of the whole thing" and that the rest would be decided as and when meetings with other party leaders take place.

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader and All India Trinamool Congress leader, could not come to an understanding on the important issue of whether the Congress will be part of it or be associated with it because Mamata Banerjee is not loathe to the Congress. Chandrasekhar Rao, however, considers the Congress as "villain no. 1" as he had announced in Hyderabad a few days ago. We want to strengthen the federal structure. Today is just a beginning. Speaking after meeting Telangana Chief Minister Kalvakuntla Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR), Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said, "It will be a collective leadership, it will be a federal leadership". "There is a need for alternate force". He also said he will soon meet all the regional party leaders and bureaucrats across the country to gather support for the "Third Front".

Maintaining that one particular party should not rule the entire country, Banerjee said, "In politics there comes a time when every individual get to work together".

The Chief Minister's Office had also earlier said Rao is chalking out a programme to hold series of meetings at all India level with various organisations, associations and individuals shortly. "Though the feasibility for an alternative front initially raised several doubts, many political parties are now willing to get on-board", he added.

Mr. Khuntia wanted Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao to clarify his stand on whether the was against or in support of the BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre. "These will only result in an increased support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi", said BJP national secretary and former state BJP president Rahul Sinha.
