Iftar politics: Rahul Gandhi invites Chandrababu, ignores KCR

With an aim to consolidate the party’s strength and also unite all anti-BJP forces under a single roof, Rahul Gandhi is making all his best efforts and invited all strong leaders who launched the fight against Modi’s government. Surprisingly, AP CM Chandra Babu Naidu who was an anti-Congress man was also among the invitees.

The iftar party to be hosted by Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday in New Delhi assumed political significance this time. After the TDP ended its alliance with BJP, Chandra Babu Naidu has been looking for a strong force to reckon with the mighty BJP and it would not come as a surprise if Babu forms an alliance with the Congress.
Leaders say Rahul extended the invitation to Chandrababu along with political bigwigs Mulayam Singh Yadav, Sharad Pawar, Lalu Prasad Yadav etc. However, Telangana CM KCR was not invited as he had floated the idea of Federal Front to fight against BJP and Congress.
