Telangana CM meets Stalin, Karunanidhi; discusses federal front

Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, on a mission to form a non-BJP non-Congress alternative, on Sunday met DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi and its working president M K Stalin in Chennai.
Soon after landing in Chennai, Rao drove down to the Gopalapuram residence of Karunanidhi and enquired about his health condition.
He was received at the residence by Stalin, who presented him a shawl. Former Union Ministers T R Baalu and A Raja were present when the meeting took place.
Rao described the meeting as “very delightful”. He said his ongoing effort was not aimed at some kind of a “third front”.
It was not a mere alignment of political parties but “that of the people” of the country”, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi supremo told reporters in a joint press meet with
Stalin.
Stalin said he had healthy discussions with Rao
and the view points expressed by him would be discussed with like minded parties and also at the DMK’s various forums, including the Executive and the General Council meetings.
