CHENNAI: It Is Still To Respond To A Request From TRS President K Chandrasekhar Rao For A Meeting With Party Chairman M K Stalin On May 13, Stating The Running Campaign For Assembly By Spears.
The Development Comes On A Day When Kerala Chief Minister Met With His Telangana Counterpart In Thiruvananthapuram. Monday Called It An" Important" And Said That Regional Parties In The Country Would Play An Important Role In Shaping Government After The Lok Sabha " It Was An Important Meeting. In My Opinion, Both The (Congress And BJP) Fronts May Not Get A Majority In The Polls. That's Why Regional Parties Will Play A Major Role," Vijayan Told Reporters In Thiruvananthapuram.
" Rao Had Sought A Suitable Time To Meet With Our Party Chairman. We Still Have To Come Back Because Our Party Chairman Is Busy With Campaigns For Assembly By Banner," Said A DMK Source. Still Meet On May 12 Or May 13, Because It's Just A Courtesy Visit. However, It Is Unlikely That He Will Make Any Commitment, Even If The Conversations Focus On A Federal Front," Added Another Source In The DMK.
Although KCR Is Reportedly On A Pilgrimage Across The Southern States, Its Movement To Meet With Regional Party Leaders Has Revived Speculations On Attempts To Form A Federal Frontal Government Consisting Of Mainly Regional Parties At The Center.

Karnataka CM H D Kumaraswamy, Also Spoke With KCR Over The Telephone. After Talking With The Idea Of a Federal Front For Some Time Last Year, The KCR Held A Few Meetings With Regional Party Leaders, Including Stalin.
