Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao appears to have not lost hope on forming a non-Congress and non-Bharatiya Janata Party political alternative at the national level, notwithstanding the fact that there has not been much response to his proposal.
He went all the way to Kolkata to meet Trinamul Congress chief and his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee to discuss his federal front proposal a few days ago, but it did not yield much result, as she categorically told him that no-front would be successful without the Congress party.
KCR’s latest meeting with former Jharkhand chief minister Hemanth Soren in Hyderabad also has given the same result.He invited Hemanth and his family members to Pragati Bhavan and hosted sumptuous lunch. Along with it, he tried to brainwash Soren to give up friendship with the Congress and join hands with him to form the third front.
But Hemanth, being a close ally of the Congress party, has not given him much response. Very recently, Hemant forged alliance with Congress to fight the next elections jointly in Jharkhand.
Though the TRS sources say Hemanth was convinced of KCR’s theory of the consolidation of all regional parties against BJP and Congress at national level, there was no positive statement from him to that effect.As of now, only Ajit Jogi spoke positively about KCR’s plan. If he too backtracks, the TRS chief would be left alone!
