CPI General Secretary Survaram Sudhakar Reddy said the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief was making no effort to meet the leaders of the constituents of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) to invite them to join his proposed Federal Front.
Reddy said while the Left parties had no reservation over efforts to bring together the regional parties, the manner in which KCR was pursuing his efforts had raised serious doubts about his real intentions.
The CPI leader told reporters that the TRS President had so far held talks only with the parties which were either part of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) or which were likely to support it.
"Why is KCR not holding talks with Akali Dal, the party which was fighting for the rights of the states and for a true a federal set up? Why is he not inviting Ram Vilas Paswan's party to join the Federal Front or making an appeal to other constituents of NDA?" asked Reddy.
The CPI leader said that even before the completion of the Lok Sabha elections, KCR had resumed his efforts to form a Federal Front by visiting various states.
Predicting a fractured verdict and a hung Parliament, Sudhakar Reddy said the formation of a government without the support of either the BJP or Congress was not possible. He appealed to all regional and secular parties to come together to form a non-BJP government.
"More than the power, the country's future should be important. The need of the hour is to protect democracy, secularism and the Constitution ," he said.
