K Chandrasekhar Rao not keen on aligning with national parties

A day after UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi wrote to all UPA allies and non-NDA parties for a meeting on May 23 — a move aimed at strengthening opposition unity and to checkmate the Narendra Modi-led NDA — both YSR Congress and Telangana Rashtra Samiti, sources on Wednesday said they have not received any invitation so far.

A senior YSRC leader said that the Congress has damaged the image of Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy by implicating him in false cases and unless Mrs Gandhi clears this up how can he attend the meeting.

TRS chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao is keen on forming a Federal Front of parties not aligned to either of the main national parties and so he may not want to commit himself at this stage by attending the meeting. Both leaders are waiting for a clear picture to emerge at the national level after the Lok Sabha results.

Will attend Jagan’s swearing-in as AP CM: KCR

TRS chief and Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao continues to lay focus on AP politics though it’s more than three weeks since the polling for AP Assembly polls has ended.

KCR is making it a point to discuss on AP politics and poll outcome every day with senior leaders of TRS at Pragathi Bhavan.

During an informal meeting held today with in Hyderabad few ministers, party’s Rajya Sabha members and TRS MLAs, KCR reportedly said that he is keen to attend YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s swearing in ceremony as AP Chief Minister after May 23 results.

KCR’s comments proves that he is cent per cent confident of YSRCP winning AP Assembly polls and Jagan becoming next CM of AP.

KCR is also learnt to have told party leaders that, “By attending Jagan’s swearing-in, my return gift to Chandrababu Naidu will be 100 per cent complete. The return gift to Naidu is now in the process of delivering to him and it will be delivered by me to Naidu in the form of attending Jagan’s swearing-in.”

When party leaders asked him how can he be so confident of Jagan’s win, KCR reportedly said, “I have my own survey reports. I have my own intelligence reports. My survey reports never went wrong. All my survey reports point to Jagan’s victory. After taking all these factors into consideration, I have made up my mind to attend Jagan’s swearing-in ceremony as CM.”

KCR said his Federal Front at national politics will get a boost with Jagan’s victory and Naidu’s defeat.

KCR said once out of power, Naidu will automatically lose his clout in national politics and leaders of regional parties will look up to him to form the Federal Front.

KCR also told party leaders that he wants KTR and Kavitha to also attend Jagan’s swearing-in ceremony along with him.
