In a strong reaction to the meeting Jagan had with TRS working president K T Rama Rao in Hyderabad to discuss the Federal Front, Andhra Pradesh Finance Minister and TDP politburo member Yanamala Ramakrishnudu said the relationship between the TRS and the YSRC that so far remained secret has now come out in the open.
"All those who did injustice to Andhra Pradesh are now ganging up. The meeting between KTR and Jagan happened under the direction of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.Both Jagan and KCR are Modi's puppets," Yanamala said in a statement.The YSRC chiefs claim that he would secure Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh with the help of the TRS exposed a conspiracy, he said.

Lokesh reacted on his official Twitter handle stating that, “Jagan formed Andhra Drohula (traitors) Front by joining hands with KCR who tried to scuttle the growth of AP for four years and who was responsible for not settling the issues between AP and Telangana pertaining to AP Reorganisation Act.”

KCR asked Odisha CM also to not cooperate for the project. He added that KCR did not release the money to AP related to power supply settlement. He described the Federal Front as Modi Front.

Minister Sidda Raghava Rao said that KCR created hurdles in settling the properties between Telangana and AP. Pulla Rao said that people will give a befitting lesson to both KCR and Jagan in the ensuing elections.
MP Kesineni Srinivas said that the TDP would win 160 seats, if Telangana CM Chandrasekhar Rao undertakes campaign on behalf of YS Jagan.
