Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Roa, who has recently announced to start a movement to build non-BJP, non-Congress national alternative, is set to meet Kolkata and meet CM Mamata Bannerjee of West Bengal on Monday. Meanwhile he also said he will soon meet all the regional party leaders and bureaucrats across the country to gather support for the "Third Front".

"She knows that TMC's days are numbered in West Bengal and thus she is going soft on the CPI (M), even, taking the help of any party because she would need any party including the CPI (M) and the Congress to fight against the BJP in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections".

He said that there is a need for an alternative agenda, alternative development and alternative force. "Though the feasibility for an alternative front initially raised several doubts, many political parties are now willing to get on-board", he added. We made a good beginning today and I am confident that we would be able to take it forward. Let the Federal Front be strong. "Different federal parties have already contacted the two Chief Ministers", a senior party leader said. You want the same routine model to continue? "This will be on people's agenda", said Rao.

The CPI-M on Monday ridiculed Trinamul Congress chief's "so called" attempt to forge of third front with the help of some regional parties and charged that she is actually working to scuttle the nationwide move to form an alliance against the BJP.

Accordingly KCR's Third Front idea was backed by Mamta Banarjee, MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi, Former Jharkhand CM Hemanth Soren and Jana Sena Chief Pawan Kalyan.

Making a counter-allegation Krishna Saagar said, "KCR wants to increase his negotiation power with the Congress by using reference of Didi (Mamata Banerjee)". Today is the beginning of the federal front, the beginning of the whole thing.

He forces himself to do that. "On Sunday I will try to make the best decision because we want to go the next round". Barca boss Ernesto Valverde said: "That goes with Messi's personality, the sense of responsibility that he has".

KCR had earlier lashed out at both the BJP and the Congress for not attaining qualitative change in the country even after 70 years of independence.

"This was a good beginning. I think politics is a continuous process, whatever we have discussed is aimed towards the development of the country", she said. Rest of the things will be made clear when other leaders sit together, discuss and come to a consensus. We have to work together.

"We are trying to bring in a real third front for this country". We are not in a hurry.

She added, "Politics throws at you situations where you have to work with different people".

Banerjee said: "I maintain good relations with all parties".
