Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu met his Karnataka counterpart HD Kumaraswamy during the latter’s visit to Vijayawada on Friday.
The meeting of the two CMs has given rise to the speculations of the regional parties joining forces in the upcoming 2019 elections to combat the incumbent NDA. Speaking to the media after their meeting that lasted half an hour, Naidu said, “All the regional parties should come together to defeat the NDA Government.” He added that the meeting was too short for developing a proper poll strategy and that they would soon meet to unite the regional parties in their fight against NDA.
The meeting also added fuel to strong speculations of TDP’s alliance with Congress in the upcoming elections; owing to the fact that Kumaraswamy’s JDS has an alliance with Congress back in Karnataka.
Speaking on future that holds for the two parties and the PM candidate if they win, Kumaraswamy said, “We met several times last month and recently met in AP Bhavan in Delhi and discussed several issues including how to go to the future Parliamentary elections. We are like brothers and eagerly waiting for elections. All leaders of regional parties will sit together and decide the Prime Minister candidate. The country should be safe and we have to change the present system,”
Kumaraswamy who was on a personal visit to Vijayawada also visited the Kanaka Durga Temple to seek blessings of the deity. Ministers Devineni Umamaheswara Roa and Prattipati Pulla Rao were also present at the meeting.
