The Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) on Thursday said that it stands committed on forming a non-Congress and non-BJP government at the Centre. "Our chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has taken the initiative to combine all regional parties which have the same ideology as that of TRS. He is taking an initiative of forming a federal front at the Centre after the elections," TRS spokesperson Abid Rasool Khan told ANI.

"Our stand is one that is the federal front, a coalition of regional parties without Congress or BJP at the Centre," he added. Khan claimed that the federal front will acquire the required numbers to form the government at the Centre after May 23.

On Monday, Rao had met DMK chief MK Stalin at his residence in Chennai, amid speculations over a hung Parliament and possibilities of forming a non-BJP, non-Congress federal front. However, Stalin dismissed the speculations saying his meeting with Rao was a "courtesy visit" and ruled out the possibility of the federal front forming the government after the polls.

"We have categorically said in a statement that it was a courtesy call but certain people with intentions were trying to give new colour to the meeting," Stalin had told reporters on Tuesday. "I don't see the possibility of a government of a third front. It will be known only after the results on May 23," he had said. (ANI)
