KCR calls on Mamata. Keywords: Federal Front, people's agenda

All Eyes Set On KCR-Didi Meet in Kolkata

A week after the dinner hosted by UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi featuring all "secular" outfits - including the Trinamool Congress - Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Monday put a stamp on her Telengana counterpart K Chandrashekhar Rao's Third Front initiative devoid of a tri-colour and saffron tinge.

Stating that he was trying to form a "real" federal front with a collective leadership for the 2019 elections, he said: "It will be a collective leadership, it will be a federal leadership".

Mamata Banerjee, however, said consultations with many other parties too would begin on the formation of a Federal Front. "Rest of the things will get clear when other leaders will sit together, discuss and come to a consensus", Rao, also the chief of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, told reporters after the meeting in Kolkata. Do you want the same routine model to continue? "The agenda we are proposing is different from the routine political model", he further added. "This will be on people's agenda".

However, a beginning was made for the formation of what is being called a "federal front" and both leaders expressed happiness about it. "We made a good beginning".

Telangana BJP spokesperson Krishna Saagar Rao on Sunday alleged that Rao's travel to Kolkata to meet the West Bengal chief minister also "exposes the lies" planted by his office few weeks ago that Mamata Banerjee called him in support of his plan for forming the new front.

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) on Friday quit the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance and said that it would move a no-confidence motion of its own in the Lok Sabha against the Narendra Modi-led government.

"This was a good beginning". He was accompanied by his daughter and MP Kavita and TRS MP K. Keshava Rao. "For the last 71 years what has been happening in the country".

But Congress Rajya Sabha member, Pradip Bhattacharya, appreciated Mamata Banerjee's gesture and said that she has rightly understood that without Congress there can not be any anti-BJP alternative. Automatically all will come together.

"Politics, like government administration, is a continuous process". While in some Sena circles it has been indicated that the party would back the BJP, others suggest that the party could also take a neutral stance. We want to strengthen the federal structure. Politics for bigger objectives takes time.

Banerjee said: "I maintain good relations with all parties".

"Don't think one party can rule the country".
