Telangana Opposition parties plan to form 'grand alliance'
The Congress and the TDP, which is in power in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh and was formed as a consequence of an anti-Congress movement by film icon-politician N T Ramarao, held preliminary talks on Tuesday
Last week's dissolution of the Telangana assembly, months ahead of its scheduled end, has spurred the Opposition parties, including archrivals TDP and the Congress, to explore the possibility of an alliance to take on K Chandrashekar Rao's TRS.
The Congress and the TDP, which is in power in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh and was formed as a consequence of an anti-Congress movement by film icon-politician N T Ramarao, held preliminary talks on Tuesday.
The Telangana Jana Samithi of M Kodandram, a former associate of caretaker chief minister Chandrashekar Rao, who was the chairman of Telangana Joint Action Committee, and other smaller parties, could be part of the proposed 'grand alliance'.
The Congress had backed the TDP-sponsored no-trust motion against the Narendra Modi government, and the two parties had voted together against NDA nominee M Vankaiah Naidu in the vice-presidential election.
