Parties leaders come into a huddle
Hyderabad: Amidst the talk of fractured mandate, leaders of all the political parties are coming into a huddle. While TRS Chief K Chandrashekar Rao is slated to meet AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi, the Telangana Pradesh Congress president will be meeting their party high command in New Delhi.
The MIM has become important with its seven possible seats and could play the role of king maker in case of a hung Assembly. Senior Congress leader Gudur Narayan Reddy had said that the Congress was ready to take MIM into the Front. The meeting of Chandrashekar Rao with Asaduddin Owaisi becomes important since the Congress party has reached out to it inviting into the Front.
The TRS has been saying that the MIM was it's friendly party and the senior Owaisi has also appealed the (minority) voters to vote for TRS during the election. The TRS Chief and Owaisi would be discussing on the possible outcome of the elections when they meet on lunch on Monday, a day before the results of the hardly fought elections.
The BJP seems to have yet to come to a decision as there were different opinions on supporting the TRS. While the party chief K Laxman said that the BJP was ready to support TRS in case of a hung Assembly with a condition that the TRS leaves MIM, another BJP leader Krishna Sagar Rao said that the party will not support any party.
Meanwhile, the kutami leaders have sought time to meet Governor ESL Narasimhan. The Kutami leaders are planning to request the governor to invite the Kutami to form the government in case of fractured mandate and in case of Kutami getting more seats stating that the alliance was pre-election alliance.
