Addressing media after chairing Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Parliamentary Board meeting, Rao expressed interest to participate in the national politics.

He alleged that both BJP and Congress, who ruled for most of the time since independence, had miserably failed to address real issues of people, and unless an alternative emerges the country will continue to have the same politics of allegations and counter-allegations and brick-batting between them.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Sunday promised support to her Telangana counterpart K Chandrasekhar Rao, a day after he expressed keenness to participate in national politics to bring about a "qualitative change".

Like the ruling Telugu Desam Party in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, the TRS in Telangana is unhappy with the BJP-led Central government for ignoring demands of the two states, according to sources.

"We thought that Congress will go and BJP will come and bring change".

He said Rao's statement should be welcomed by everyone, and expressed hope that the Telangana chief minister will take forward the idea of playing a role in national politics.

He was quoted by NDTV, "People are looking for change". The BJP had been able to accommodate the aspirations of regional parties, he added.#. "There is no secret about it", he said, when asked if he was talking to other non-Congress, non-BJP leaders.

But all three experiments for a Third Front at the national level - Janata Party of 1977, National Front in 1987 and United Front in 1996 all ended in failure. Discussions are going on the same.

Rao said that a PhD be awarded to KTR for abusing the opposition and its leaders. He is my good friend. Recently I met (CPM leader) Sitaram Yechury. "People hardly know what kind of friendship we have between us and what kind of matters we discuss", KCR said.
