The TRS chief has been meeting several regional party leaders in other states with the sole aim of forming a non-BJP and non-Congress front.
Federal front ready to take Congress support to form government, but won’t give Rahul driver’s seat: TRS
In case the Federal Front falls short of numbers to form the government, the option of the Congress supporting it from outside would be explored, KCR said.
Stalin had earlier proposed Congress President Rahul Gandhi's name for the Prime Minister's post and continues to stick to that.
TRS working president KTR said it is increasingly clear that neither of the two national parties -- the BJP and Congress -- will have absolute majority on their own, and 'that's definite'.
The TRS supremo had stepped up efforts to forge a non-Congress, non-BJP federal front of regional parties and recently met his Kerala counterpart Pinarayi Vijayan in Thiruvananthapuram.
The meeting between Banerjee and Naidu took place for over 15 minutes late Thursday evening, according to a well-placed source in the Trinamool Congress.
While Rao will meet Vijayan in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday evening, he will call on Stalin at his residence in Chennai later this week on May 13.
Rao is mulling meeting regional leaders, including Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy, DMK chief M K Stalin and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
TRS leader Vinod Kumar said an alliance of regional parties would be formed after the results of the Lok Sabha elections are declared.
Rapolu was upset as he was denied ticket from Palakurthy during Assembly polls in 2018.
Referring to his effort to form the Federal Front, the chief minister said that the prime minister was scared that he (Chandrasekhar Rao) might take up an active role in national politics.
Predicting fall of Modi Sarkar after elections, the Trinamool chief said out of 543 seats in Lok Sabha, the BJP would not get even 125.
The TRS leadership is expecting that like-minded regional parties, which maintain equidistance from both Congress and BJP, may get around 70 to 100 LS seats after the polls.
She said the fundamental agenda of the alliance of regional parties would be not to tie up either with the BJP or the Congress.
Naidu, who joined Banerjee's "Save India" sit-in in Kolkata, said that her ruling Trinamool Congress will win all 42 Lok Sabha seats in West Bengal in the upcoming general elections.
