KCR meets Mamata to discuss federal front

There’s a need for an alternate force’ Telangana CM on a Third Front after meeting Mamata Banerjee

The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee has asserted that the proposed alternative by TRS president and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao will remain a non-starter or irrelevant as the TRS would not win many seats in the next elections.

Chandrashekhar Rao met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata on Monday. Will it do any wonders?

Addressing the media after the hour-long meet, KCR said the regional parties who are opposed to the NDA government should root for a "federal front" rather than joining the Congress-led UPA.

The meet between the two CMs has once again stirred the possibility of a third front or a collective Opposition ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Responding to what would his step be if Congress decides to give them an outside support, Telangana CM Rao said, "You are thinking in the routine political model. We have to talk to all of the others", he said while telling the reporters not to read this as any other alliance of political parties. He has expressed his views. We are not in a hurry.

Two years ago, many of them spent $800 for an HTC Vive providing a full roomscale VR experience with hand controls. All of that adds to realism, and HTC believes that will make VR experiences and games more immersive.

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.

"In a democracy, such situation comes up when all parties need to come together to work". He felt that it is not good for the country if a single party rules the nation. Every party has its regional strength, national strength and its own identity.

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.

On March 4, Banerjee spoke to Rao over phone and conveyed her complete support on his statement that he was keen to participate in national politics to bring about "qualitative changes" in governance.

State BJP leaders, however, scoffed at the meeting. They do it to satisfy their greed and ego.
