HD Kumaraswamy discusses anti-BJP alliances with KCR

Karnataka former chief minister HD Kumaraswamy met Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao in Hyderabad


HYDERABAD: Karnataka former chief minister and Janata Dal (Secular) leader HD Kumaraswamy met Telangana Chief Minister and Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chandrashekar Rao at Pragathi Bhavan here on Sunday. KCR hosted Kumaraswamy for lunch at his official residence following which they were closeted in a long meeting.

Kumaraswamy's visit and his deliberations with KCR assumed political significance in the wake of the TRS chief's renewed efforts to unify the opposition parties in the country against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its NDA government at the Centre. The two leaders were said to have discussed in detail the overall prevailing political climate in the country against the backdrop of various recent developments.

The role and significance of regional parties in national politics and KCR's proposed national party to counter the BJP were among the topics that reportedly cropped up in their discussions. The two leaders were also learnt to have focused on a broader roadmap for the future course of action in this regard.

KCR had already met Kumaraswamy and his father and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda in Bengaluru a few months back as part of his efforts to create unity and consensus among the opposition parties. The TRS chief has been meeting national leaders of repute belonging to several prominent political parties across the country. He has recently visited Bihar where he met Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of JDU and Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav.

While building the momentum for the launch of his national party, the TRS chief has also been appealing to all like-minded opposition parties to come together to defeat the BJP at the national level.
