Hyderabad: Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao left for Chennai on a special flight from Begumpet airport on Sunday evening. He is expected to meet DMK president M.K. Stalin on Tuesday evening and discuss the present political scenario in the country.
Mr Rao had arrived in the city on Friday night after a five-day tour of Tamil Nadu and Kerala with his family members.
He met with Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in Thiruvananthapuram last Monday and the two leaders discussed the ongoing elections to the Lok Sabha, possible outcomes of the polls, and the role that regional parties can play together with the Left parties in government formation at the Centre. He had continued on to TN but was unable to meet Mr Stalin, and hopes to do so this time.
This will be the second time Mr Rao will be meeting Mr Stalin after the two met in April last year.
Mr Rao, who is promoting a non-Congress and non-BJP Federal Front at the Centre since last year, has met leaders of several regional parties, including Trinamul president Mamata Banerjee, Janata Dal (Secular) president H D Deve Gowda, Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav, and Biju Janata Dal president Naveen Patnaik.
