Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, who is rallying support for establishment of a non-BJP and non-Congress alternative, will meet his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee at Kolkata on March 19.

Rao, popularly known as KCR, had recently said a non-Congress and non-BJP front should be formed in the country, as he called for a qualitative change in politics and had also announced that he was ready to take on the mantle of leading a political front.

"In the backdrop of Telangana Chief Minister calling for a qualitative change in politics, he will meet and hold discussions with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on March 19," sources in the Telangana Chief Minister's office (CMO) told PTI tonight.

The chief minister would meet Mamata Banerjee in Kolkata at around 4 pm, they said.

On March 4, Mamata Banerjee spoke to Rao over phone and conveyed her complete support on his statement that he was keen to participate in national politics to bring about "qualitative changes" in governance.

"Ham aap se ek mat hain. Aap ke saath rahenge" (I am in agreement with you.I will work with you)," Banerjee had told Rao.

Alleging that successive governments ruled by both the Congress and BJP at the Centre have miserably failed to ensure development of the country, Rao had earlier said he will talk with all like-minded parties and leaders for creating an agenda for the country's growth.

The CMO had also earlier said KCR is chalking out a programme to hold series of meetings at the all India level with various organisations, associations and individuals shortly.
