KCR, Mamata coin idea of 'Federal Front' to check BJP

Telangana chief minister K. Chandrashekar Rao met Mamata Banerjee on Monday and called for a "federal front", stressing the need for a " chamatkar (miracle)" the country has not seen since Independence.

Earlier this month, Rao had proposed formation of a non-Congress and non-BJP front in the country.

Following his meeting with Banerjee, Rao is likely to tour Delhi, probably after the budget session of the State Legislature, to meet more regional satraps, to persuade them to be part of the third front.

K Chandrashekhar Rao said the third front will be the front will be for the people of India.

While the Chief Minister was addressing, Ms Banerjee replied to a scribe's question saying, "it is not like whatever Mr Rao has said, I completely agree with that, but let him speak, if something happens you will get to know".

"The Federal Front is not a routine model". It will be the people's agenda. Instead of being accountable, he said KCR has initiated the talk of forming "Third Front".

She said, "This is a good beginning". "Whatever we have discussed is aimed towards [the] development of the country". But, what needs to be recalled is that a few days ago, KCR had called for a non Congress - non BJP type of a third front.

Pointing out the urgency of bringing a "real political change", he insisted that the BJP and the Congress had ruined India and there was strong need for a "federal front", that would take care of the people's aspirations. "It is a good beginning that both the states held discussions today". KCR was accompanied by Members of Parliament, K Kavitha, APJ Jitendar Reddy and TRS general secretary Santosh Kumar along with K Keshav Rao, who was once Congress in charge for West Bengal. For 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. Rest of the things will be made clear when other leaders sit together, discuss and come to a consensus. Politics is a continuous process. The dialogue has been started. "We are not in a hurry and are approaching others also". "The idea has been conceived but it will be challenging as to how far it succeeds", said E. Venkatesu, associate political science professor at the University of Hyderabad. In politics it takes time... in the meantime, everybody is free to discuss.
