Chennai: In what could be a fresh development on the political horizon, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekar Rao is meeting DMK president M K Stalin today at 4 pm.
Though earlier there were reports that Stalin would give the meeting a miss, saying he was busy campaigning for the 19 May by-polls to four constituencies in Tamilnadu, he has now agreed to meet the Telangana Chief Minister at his Alwarpet house in Chennai.
KCR, as Chandrasekar Rao is commonly known as, is trying to form a non-BJP, non-Congress third front at the Centre. He recently met Kerala Chief Minsiter Pinarayi Vijayan and spoke to Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy.
Though the DMK is firmly allied with Congress in Tamilnadu, KCR is trying to draw the Stalin-led party into a third front at the Centre.
The general elections is seen as an important political battle in Stalin’s life as it is the first poll he is facing as president of the party.
