On Sunday, Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, during his first campaign speech for the general elections, said that he would form a ‘national party’ if required after examining the poll results.
He said, “People think I have just 16 MPs with me. Obviously I will not make my plans public. But, I can tell you, I have about 120 leaders on my side who are supporting me. I have travelled and met other regional leaders and I told them exactly what I had to.”
He added, “If the nation has to improve, then the BJP and Congress need to move out. We need structural changes and states need to have greater control. If you bless me, I will form a national party, if required, after looking at the poll results.”
