KCR finds support in Mamata for his third front proposal

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee called Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday and conveyed her support to the alternative front proposed by him here on Saturday.

Rao proposed an alternative, to both the BJP and the Congress, in which he said he will play an important role at the national level.

Mamata agreed with Rao's opinion that there is a necessity for qualitative change in the country's politics.

"Ham aap se ek mat hai. Aap ke saath rahenge" (I am in agreement with you. I will work with you) she said over phone.

Hemanth Soren, former chief minister of Jharkhand, also expressed his solidarity.

He welcomed Rao's decision to play a key role in national politics.

Janasena chief Pawan Kalyan also welcomed the alternative front proposal.

Along with two MPs from Maharashtra several prominent people from different walks of live expressed their support.

People from different parts of Telengana reached  Pragathi Bhavan, the office of the state's chief minister, to support Rao's statement.

Addressing them Rao said that people are fed up with non-performing governments at the Centre.

"We thought that Congress will go and BJP will come and bring change. But we are disillusioned, if Congress gave you Vijay Mallya, BJP gave you Nirav Modi," he said.

He pointed out that if the laws of the land don't allow development as in China, the laws must be changed.

Seeking devolution of powers, he said that the BJP is angry with him as he was questioning the Centre for their failure to address problems faced by the farmers.

"The local BJP leadership is threatening me with imprisonment for criticizing prime minister, but that is not new for me," he said recalling 14 years of struggle for Telangana.
