Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) has officially started the initial talks for formation of "Federal Front" (Third Front) in the country.

"We made a good beginning today and we will be able to carry forward from this", Rao, also the Telangana Rashtra Samithi chief, told the media with Banerjee by his side. "This country needs something wonderful", he said.

The TS Chief Minister also made it clear that would not be a run-of-the-mill alliance of a few political parties, but would be a front for the people. Will it do any wonders?

Krishna Saagar Rao, BJP spokesperson, who ruled out Congress allegations of a "covert" understanding with his party, said, "The Congress is making baseless allegations... it failed even as an opposition party in leading other parties in the house".

Batting for a Federal Front -- floated unsuccessfully by Mamata on earlier occasions, KCR said in 2019 there would be a front which will be a "for the people of India".

The meeting between the two Chief Ministers came amid Rao making efforts to stitch an alternative political front by uniting regional parties against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the crucial 2019 General elections.

For the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, more than 10 parties had floated a Third Front, but they did not do well. It will be the people's agenda.

"It is a good beginning". "We had very good discussions". He said KCR was afraid of facing people as his government did not nothing for any section of the society during the last four years. Today was just the beginning.

When asked whether there will be any common minimum programme (CMP) of the proposed front, Mamata Banerjee said that the time has not yet come to decide on these matters.

While the Chief Minister was addressing, Ms Banerjee replied to a scribe's question saying, "it is not like whatever Mr Rao has said, I completely agree with that, but let him speak, if something happens you will get to know". "I think politics is a continuous process, whatever we have discussed is aimed towards development of the country". "The federal front that is in the offing will be a huge entity", he said. "The idea has been conceived but it will be challenging as to how far it succeeds", said E. Venkatesu, associate political science professor at the University of Hyderabad.

Sometimes in politics, situations emerge that cause people to work together. Everybody has their own regional and national strength.
