KCR Meets Mamata, Announces the Beginning of Federal Front


"The discussions will focus on creating some kind of regional formation for setting up a political front with like-minded parties and for creating an agenda for the country's growth", they said. It is for the people of the country.

Reacting to the meeting, Congress Rajya Sabha member Pradip Bhattacharya said that Mamata had realised that there would be no alternative to BJP without the inclusion of Congress.

Mamata Banerjee, expressing hope that the People's Federal Front would succeed, said the meeting was a "good beginning" where discussions centred around development of the country.

While Rao made it clear the proposed front would be a non-BJP, non-Congress entity, the Bengal chief minister and Trinamul boss remained non-committal on the question of the Congress's inclusion in the arrangement.

KCR has already announced about the front and emphasized the urgent need for such a formation in the country in order to bring qualitative change in politics.

Batting for a Federal Front -- floated unsuccessfully by Mamata on earlier occasions, KCR said in 2019 there would be a front which will be a "for the people of India". Last week former Union minister Praful Patel of Nationalist Congress Party called on her at the same venue. She said she and Mr Rao discussed the development of the country and farmers' issues and will hold discussions with like-minded parties.

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 started the dialogue. Let the leaders talk to each other. We have to work together as it is a collective family. "We want a strong front but we are not in a hurry", she stated.

Mamata on Friday had urged all opposition parties to work closely together against the NDA.

BJP state president Dilip Ghosh, on the other hand, alleged that Mamata was looking for help from the Opposition parties to fight against BJP. Politics for bigger objectives, takes time.

Dasoju also mocked KCR saying he was staging a show in order to divert the attention of the people, adding, "I don't think Mamata Banerjee ji will take him seriously, no one will lose anything by showing willingness to meet (accepting his proposal for meeting)". No party should be so proud of their own identity.
