Naidu, who himself has a "contact for support," meets with opposition leaders in the country to form an alliance (mahagatbandhan) to face the BJP ahead of the Lok Sabha elections and meet Gowda and the leader of Karnataka. Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Thursday urged JD (S) leaders to be part of his mission and take the lead in his campaign.
Gowda and Kumaraswamy alternately swapped their offer, as they have already successfully experimented in recent districts of Karnataka by aligning themselves with Congress. The coalition won two of Lok Sabha's three seats and the two seats in the assembly, which now constitute general elections as part of the BJP's fight against opposition parties for a national model.
`Naidu took the lead and met with several leaders to consolidate all the secular parties against the BJP. He did it before 1996 and I am confident that he will repeat it again in 2019, "said Kumarswamy, visibly delighted, at a joint press conference with Naidu and Gowda after a meeting It was also repeated by Naidu and Gowda
In the 1996 elections in Lok Sabha, the TDP, Janata Dal, and the Samajwadi party formed a non-BJP, non-congressional coalition to participate in the popular vote known as the Third Front. Narasimha Rao, president of the Congress, lost power and decided to extend his support to the one led by Gowda, which lasted 10 months.
However, there was no consensus on the candidate for prime minister between Gowda and Naidu. Rahul Gandhi, Naidu, said the prime minister would be decided collectively by all non-BJP parties. "We are uniting to save democracy, institutions and the country's constitution and not really for power," Naidu said. “ The country is paramount and the party is secondary. Congress will join us Although the BJP is in power in so many states, it has done nothing. Rajasthan Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh ", said Congress, said Mr. Gowda
Naidu had talks with Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and BSP leader Mayawati and Farooq Abdullah National Conference leader about the formation of the Third Front, stating that he had been up here "very" positive ". "I expect to meet on Friday the head of the DMK, M Stalin, and seek his cooperation as well," he added.
