Rao said a full agenda would be placed before the people soon and for this he would meet all likeminded leaders shortly in Delhi adding "we will not consider anybody as untouchable".
He said an agenda aimed at the larger good of the people and all round growth of the country cannot be prepared by a single party but only after eliciting the opinion of all like mined people and parties.
