Hyderabad, Apr 30: All these days, there has been a talk that the federal front of regional parties being proposed by Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is nothing but a Team 'B' of the National Democratic Alliance headed by Bharatiya Janata Party.
The Congress party was alleging that KCR had been trying to split the pro-Congress regional parties and attract them in the name of federal front only to weaken the Congress thereby benefiting the Narendra Modi-led NDA government.
Except making political criticism during electioneering, KCR has not taken up any aggressive campaign against Modi or the BJP, unlike his Andhra Pradesh counterpart and Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu who has been moving heaven and earth against Modi across the country.
This has led to the talk that KCR might join the NDA government after the elections, if the BJP-coalition comes to power. However, the latest information from the party is that KCR, too, is not willing to join hands with the BJP.
In the event of the BJP-led coalition falls short of majority, KCR will not extend support to it nor will other federal front partners like YSR Congress or Biju Janata Dal.
According to a national media report, even if the federal front was to form the government, it will not seek the support of the BJP, but if necessary, will request the Congress to support it as had happened in 1996.
In a bid to project himself as anti-BJP or anti-Modi, KCR is planning even to approach the Left parties and request them to join the federal front.
He is likely to go to Kerala in a day or two to meet the Left front leaders. From there, he will be go all the states where regional parties are strong and mobilise their support to the federal front, the national media report said.
