Chennai, May 13 : Telengana Chief Minister K Chandrasekara Rao on Monday called on Opposition DMK President M K Stalin at the latter's residence in the city.
Mr Rao's visit was seen as an effort to cobble together the Opposition parties at the National level to form a non-Congress and non-BJP front and seek DMK's support for the same. But the idea was unlikely acceptable to the DMK as Mr Stalin was the first to project Congress President Rahul Gandhi as the next Prime Minister and has vowed to oust the fascist BJP-led NDA at the Centre from power in the Lok Sabha polls, the final phase of which would be held on May 19.
Mr Rao, who offered worship at the Sri Ramanathaswamy temple at Rameswaram and at Lord Ranganathaswamy temple at Srirangam, drove down straight to Mr Stalin's Alwarpet residence. He was received by Mr Stalin and senior DMK leders, including Duramurugan and T R Baalu. (UNI)
