This statement is made a day after West Bengal Chief Minister TMC supremo Mamata Banerjee backed Telangana Rashtra Samithi chief K Chandrashekhar Rao’s call to structure the Third Front to offer a substitute to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress.
The Trinamool Congress leader spoke to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief about how she is with them in bringing like-minded parties together.
According to the West Bengal CM’s Office, Mamata told him that she completely agrees with him and is ready to work with him. ”I am in agreement with you. I will work with you,” the West Bengal CM’s office quoted Mamata Banerjee.
The Telangana Rashtra Samithi chief who is popularly known as KCR, on Saturday expressed that there was a call for a qualitative change in the Indian politics and declared that he was ready to bring together like-minded parties.
“There is a serious need for qualitative change in the national politics. People are vexed now. No qualitative change is seen by the people even after 70 years of exercise of democracy. It is very unfortunate. People are looking for a change. Can we expect something new to happen if Congress comes to power after BJP,” the Telangana Chief Minister said Recently.
He said that. “It can be a third front or any front. Discussions are going on the same. I am trying to `bring change` in politics and I don’t mind to be a part of the change…”
Ex-chief minister Hemant Soren of Jharkhand also made a call to KCR and expressed his support for the third front. He appreciated KCR’s assessment to play a key role in national politics.
“The country is fed up with the BJP and the Congress, and it’s time to go for a third front”, this was AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi words.
“I welcome Telangana CM’s statement and he rightly stated that people of the country are fed up with BJP governance and Congress is not a viable option, neither it can become one,” Added Owaisi.
