A day after Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao called for third front ahead of 2019 general elections, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) Chief Asaduddin Owaisi welcomed his statement.
"Rao has given exemplary governance to Telangana in the last 4 years," added Owaisi.
The Chief Minister said he was in consultation with other leaders on the possibility of forming a common platform with likeminded political parties.
"There is a serious need for qualitative change in the national politics. People are vexed now. No qualitative change is seen by the people even after 70 years of exercise of democracy. It is very unfortunate. People are looking for a change. Can we expect something new to happen if Congress comes to power after BJP," the Chief Minister said.
He said that the new platform could be a third front or any other front and he will not mind being a part of the change.
"It can be a third front or any front. Discussions are going on the same. I am trying to 'bring change' in politics and I don't mind to be a part of the change," he said.
