Mamata calls up Vijayamma, discusses proposed front

IANS  |  Hyderabad 

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Sunday spoke to YSR Congress's honorary president Y.S. Vijayamma over phone and discussed the proposed Federal Front of like-minded parties.

Banerjee, who heads the Trinamool Congress, told Vijayamma that Lok Sabha elections are likely to be held much before May 2014 and that the possibility of like-minded parties coming together should be explored.

"She proposed that TMC, YSR Congress and other such parties can come together for the snap polls which are likely to be held in November," said a statement issued by YSR Congress.

Banerjee asked Vijayamma to take the issue to her son Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy and obtain his opinion on the issue.

Recalling her association with late Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, she enquired about Jaganmohan Reddy and the cases foisted on him.

YSR Congress president Jaganmohan Reddy is in jail for over one year in a disproportionate assets case.
