Mamata and KCR to form federal front

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee met Telangana Chief Minister K.Chandrasekhar Rao at the State Secretariat in Kolkata. The meeting had initiated the process of forming a federal front for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

Mr.Rao emphasized the need for an alternative agenda, an alternative development and an alternative political force in the country as the routine kind of administration provided by the BJP and the Congress had not  worked well for the country. The federal front would be a like minded group of political leaders.Mamata Banerjee described the meeting as a good beginning and things would be made clear when other leaders sat and discussed.
