In a bid to build a strong Opposition ahead of the general elections, Andhra Pradesh chief minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu arrived at former prime minister H D Deve Gowda's residence in Padmanabhangar, Bengaluru, on Thursday.

Gowda, along with his son and Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, came out to receive Naidu. The leaders will hold preliminary discussions on chalking out strategies for a 'Grand Alliance'.

Naidu was an ally in the Narendra Modi-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA), and broke away in March this year after the Centre denied Special Status to Andhra Pradesh. Naidu has since joined hands with the Congress-led Opposition.

On Wednesday, Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy had hinted that his father and former prime minister H D Deve Gowda will be the guiding force behind the TDP leader, giving him a push to mobilise Opposition forces for a broad-based alliance.
