Telangana chief minister K Chandra Sekhar Rao is currently busy planning the future prospects of the third front. KCR has already met political leaders from various states and managed to garner good attention for the third front. National level leader, Mamata Banerjee has already pledged her support and stated that the third front is like a nightmare for the BJP.

The latest news is that Uttar Pradesh Ex-chief minister, Akhilesh Yadav has landed in Hyderabad to meet KCR. Akhilesh is currently at the Pragathi Bhavan, discussing about the agenda, future aspects, strategies for the third front.

The real question is will the idea of forming a third front have any impact on the national politics? These regional parties can prove very crucial in case of an alliance, but their impact on the national politics can be very minimal. Well established parties like BJP and Congress possess huge cadre in all parts of India and will try to make things difficult for the regional parties.

It needs to be seen if KCR can prove himself as a worthy leader by conceptualizing the idea of a third front and use it against the likes of BJP and Congress.
