A day after proposing a "non-Congress, non-BJP front", Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao is planning to initiate a consultation process from a national perspective to take his idea forward.

According to a release issued by the Chief Minister's Office today, Rao's idea is that all those who have been thinking about the nation in various ways are to be made participants in the process of qualitative change in politics.

Rao, who heads the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, yesterday said a non-Congress and non-BJP front should be formed in the country, for the betterment of farmers and Dalits. On Saturday, the chief minister said he was keen to participate in the national politics to bring about "qualitative changes" in governance.

Several leaders, including West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi, former Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren of the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) and two MPs from Maharashtra, have extended support to Rao's proposal. -- PTI
