New Delhi: Telangana chief minister and Telangana Rashtra Samiti chief K Chandrasekhar Rao, on Monday, called Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam chief MK Stalin to his residence, to discuss his proposal for a “Federal Front”.

Although Rao, who is popularly known as KCR, had tried to woo Stalin to the idea of forming a “Federal Front” government at the Centre, Stalin was firm that the DMK would be with the UPA and urged Rao to extend TRS’s support to the Congress, according to sources from DMK.

Stalin also clarified that his party in a pre-poll alliance with the Congress and he had also pitched the name of Rahul Gandhi for the office of the Prime Minister.

DMK said the meeting was only a “courtesy” call.

KCR has been meeting regional party leaders and trying to unite them under one block to form a federal front, which excludes Congress and BJP.

BJP Tamil Nadu unit president Tamilisai Soundararajan said, “The meeting between the DMK chief and the TRS leader was proof that Stalin was reconsidering his move to support Congress president Rahul Gandhi as prime-ministerial candidate.”

She also alleged that the DMK had a reputation of changing colours, adding there was no transparency.
