JMM leader Hemant Soren meets KCR in Hyderabad, says viable alternative for BJP will emerge


Hyderabad: Jharkhand Mukti Morcha leader and former chief minister of Jharkhand Hemant Soren on Wednesday said a viable alternative to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would emerge in the country in time for the 2019 elections. “The BJP is playing dirty politics. It is showing its aggression. This sort of behavior is intolerable,” he said in an interview with TOI.
Hemant Soren, who is on a visit to Hyderabad, met Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao at Pragathi Bhavan along with his family. The Chief Minister’s Office said both the leaders ‘had lunch together and discussed national politics’. Hemant Soren arrived in the city on March 26 and will be here till March 30. Along with his family, he visited Ramoji Film City and also met Ramoji Rao. The family also visited the Golconda Fort and Salar Jung Museum.
Asked how the federal front idea that K Chandrasekhar Rao proposed would be taken forward, Hemant Soren told TOI there was a lot of discontentment in the country against the BJP. “There is a need in the country for a coalition against the BJP and it is taking place,” Hemant Soren said in reference to West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee also talking to various political parties. On the sudden activity that is being seen with leaders of various parties talking about an alternative to the BJP, Hemant Soren said it could not be described as ‘sudden’. “The process has been on for sometime,” he said.
