As new political equations emerge in the run-up to the 2024 general election, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrachkar Rao is set to meet secular Janata Dal (JDS) leader HD Coomaraswamy in Hyderabad today to discuss Mr. Rao’s plans to launch a nationwide party.
KCR, Chief Telangana Rashtriya Samithi (TRS), had earlier traveled to Bengaluru and met Mr. Kumaraswamy, his father and former Prime Minister HD Devegowda. The JDS leader arrived in Hyderabad yesterday for the meeting.
The meeting between the two leaders comes against the backdrop of the opposition parties’ meetings to form a united front against the BJP. It also comes in KCR’s latest batch for a national role.
The launch of the new party is expected around Dussehra, which will be celebrated on October 5. Late last month, the KCR visited Janata Dal United (JDU) leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in Patna and held talks on forming a united opposition. Front against BJP. “We will try to unite all the opposition parties in the country,” Telangana Chief Minister said at a joint press conference in Patna with Mr. Kumar.
Mr Kumar, who split from the BJP last month and formed a new government in Bihar with the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) and Tchachoy Yadav’s Congress, visited Delhi last week and met leaders of opposition parties to discuss the BJP’s confrontation strategy.
The KCR discussed the idea of the National Party at the last TRS public session and also at several public meetings. The new party flag will likely retain the pink color of the TRS, with the flag of India engraved on it.
He has already promised free electricity to farmers across India, if his party comes to power in the centre. He has held meetings with farm leaders from 26 states.
KCR was talking about Telangana’s model of development plans for the agricultural sector, free energy and welfare schemes such as pensions for the elderly. He has been quoting Telangana’s growth figures since he took office in 2014, just as Arvind Kejriwal has been talking about schools and ‘Mohala Clinics’, among other services to the public.
