Hyderabad, March 3 (IANS) Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday said an alternative to both BJP and Congress would emerge soon to bring qualitative change in the Indian politics.
He told reporters that the talks in this regard had already started and it would soon take some shape.
The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) President claimed that people want change as the present political system had miserably failed and said he was ready to play an active role in bringing that change.
“I am 64. If I can help bring the change and serve the country for few years, I will definitely do it,” he said.
KCR, as Rao is popularly known, believes that the once the process for change begins, it will spread like wildfire.
“Change should come in the people. The tools for this change could be coalition, front, or anything,” he said.
KCR also did not rule out joining hands with Telugu Desam Party (TDP), a partner in BJP-led NDA government at the Centre. TDP, the ruling party in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, has threatened to walk out of the alliance over the BJP not fulfilling the commitments made to the state.
Stating that there is no difference between BJP and Congress, he said these two parties were in power for almost the entire period since independence but even after 70 years there is no qualitative change.
“No qualitative change could be seen by people even after 70 years of democratic exercise. This is unfortunate. People are vexed now,” he said.
The TRS chief did not attach any significance to Saturday’s results in three northeastern states, where BJP has done well. “You will have different results in different states,” he said.
