  • DMK Chief MK Stalin is unlikely to meet Telangana Chief Minister K.Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR) as he would be campaigning for the by-polls which is scheduled on May 19 in Tamil Nadu
  • Refuting that any meeting between the two leaders was to occur, TRS MP and KCR's daughter K Kavitha has said that no appointment has been fixed yet
  • On Monday, there were reports that KCR will be meeting Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan and Tamil Nadu CM Edappadi K. Palaniswami to discuss forming the 'Federal Front' against the BJP

In contradiction to the news that Telangana Chief Minister K.Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR) was scheduled to meet DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) president MK Stalin on May 13 at the latter's residence in Chennai, sources claim on Tuesday that Stalin is unlikely to meet with  KCR.

According to DMK sources, Stalin is unlikely to meet with KCR as DMK already is in a pre-poll alliance with the Congress party and would not wish to jeopardize that. DMK has reportedly already informed KCR's team that Stalin would be unable to meet him as he would be campaigning for the by-polls which is scheduled on May 19 in Tamil Nadu where the last four Assembly seats will go to polls.

Refuting that any meeting between the two leaders was to occur, TRS MP and KCR's daughter K Kavitha has said that no appointment has been fixed yet, as per sources.
