    Is KCR following the footsteps of NTR.

    KCR was a friendly party to Congress till separate Telangana is created. Once the state is bifurcated KCR was on his own. He has become the CM. But NTR started his politics with enmity towards Congress and he has become the CM of combines AP. NTR after becoming CM started thinking about becoming PM and brought all small regional parties and Communist parties together and formed the 3rd front. We know what happened. That is history.
    Now the present CM of Telangana is taking pages out of NTR's book. He is also eyeing on PM post and trying to unite different parties. By doing this he may become PM and his son KTR may become the CM of Telangana.
    Is he going to be successful in this attempt?
    I feel all the parties going together except BJP and Congress is a very difficult proposition and people like Mamata may not accept KCR as their leader. I like to know the views of ISC members on the subject.

    The reason for the changed behaviour of KCR in the recent past to eye the seat of PM post has the compulsion because the South India is getting lesser attention in every aspect and the requirement of South people are ignored. South gets lesser attention in Railway budget and the wholesome money goes to Railways from South. Like wise big projects in South are getting meagerly allotted and thus the cost escalates year after year. Having seen the step motherly attitude of the centre , KCR hit upon the idea of third front with like minded parties and stand against BJP and Congress groups.

    NTR floated the third front around 1988/1989 and KCR is a fan of NTR. Reading this thread, the replies and a recent thread about the feasibility of a third front, it seems that the scenarios are similar. As politicians go, they would certainly have aspirations to climb up to the coveted post. If the situation is conducive and the time is ripe, then having a plan in motion would help in fulfilling this ambition. So, why not try what NTR did a few years back and hope its successful. KCR is planning on an all-party meeting in April. Let's see how far he is successful.

    Here one has to appreciate KCR for his agitation agenda to which he most famous and winner. He wants to cash on inactive , incentive centre to the various problems faced by the Southern states, and the PM wont even listen to their problems is the contention of KCR. So when a formidable alliance within the regional parties are formed, then BJP and Congress must come begging for their support in forming the government at the centre. Now that Chandrababu Naidu is also frustrated, let us see who will wield the clout . Nevertheless the future politics in South going to be great. There are even chances Rajnikanth teaming up with KCR and so on.
