They say KCR has already made a decision to name his son K T Rama Rao as his successor for the CM candidate in the next elections and that he would name KTR as the party's working president in the party plenary to be held in April.

"Even after 70 years of our independence, farmers continue to commit suicide", he said while blaming the faulty policies pursued by the two parties. Sources say that Rao has already started making calls to heads of various regional parties to stitch together a political alternative at the national level. Many government employees also met Rao and welcomed his plans -many, including MLAs, MPs and leaders of his party, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), raised slogans like "desh ka neta KCR (KCR is nation's leader)".

"I welcome Telangana CM's statement and he rightly stated that people of the country are fed up with BJP governance and Congress is not a viable option, neither it can become one", said Owaisi. "If necessary, I will hold a nationwide tour to campaign for a change in the national politics and kick up a debate", he said. "After Congress we voted for BJP, what happened in these 4 yrs?"

He said, "People are looking for change".

Raising concerns for the saffron brigade, other BJP ally Shiv Sena has said it will go solo in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

The BJP, its allies and friendly parties have secured an absolute majority in the Assemblies of Nagaland and Meghalaya. Would it reject the demand for a tribal CM? he asked. "NPF won 26 seats & NDPP won 18 seats".

"And on the anvil of elections (due in Telangana next year) to secure himself from these kind of charges, he is trying to build up a case so that he can claim political vendetta", the BJP spokesperson alleged.

The party's Hyderabad unit had on Sunday called for "Chalo Pragathi Bhavan" in protest against the Chief Minister's comments.

He said that the new platform could be a Third Front or any other front and he will not mind being a part of the change.
