HYDERABAD: Hyderabad TRS supremo and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Monday made it clear that, as of now, he has no intention to float a national party. Speaking at the TRS Legislature Party (TRSLP) meeting here, Rao dismissed as baseless the reports appearing in a section of the media, claiming that he would float a new national party called Naya Bharat. While stating that he has no such plans, Rao said that if there were any such plans, he would discuss them with the party leaders before taking a final decision. Rao also exuded confidence that the TRS would win close to 100 seats in the forthcoming GHMC polls.
