Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav arrived in Hyderabad on Wednesday afternoon and met with Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao at Pragathi Bhavan.
The Samajwadi Party Chief was greeted at the Begumpet airport in the city by IT Minister KT Rama Rao, Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav, along with other senior TRS leaders, before he headed for a scheduled lunch with KCR.
The two leaders were seen engaging in a conversation over lunch, following which they discussed several things regarding the plan to form a Federal Front.
The two leaders discussed the current political situation and the need to bring various political parties together to form a front at the national level. Senior leaders of TRS were also present during the meeting.
This comes days after KTR, who also happens to be KCR's son, met with the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister in Lucknow.
The TRS chief, who proposed the front as an alternative to both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress, has stepped up his efforts during the last few days. He visited Chennai on Sunday to meet DMK leaders M Karunanidhi and MK Stalin.
KCR had mooted the idea of a Federal Front in March to bring "a qualitative change" in national politics.
At the TRS plenary last week, a resolution was passed to this effect. Stating that both the BJP and Congress miserably failed to address people's problems during the last 70 years, KCR said the front would trigger tremors in national politics with its agenda for speedy development and addressing the real issues of people.
KCR has so far held talks with West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee, Janata Dal(S) President and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda and his son HD Kumaraswamy.
Former Jharkhand Chief Minister and Jharkhand Mukti Morcha chief Hemant Soren and well-known actor Prakash Raj had also called on KCR to discuss the formation of the front.
