K Chandrasekhar Rao, who's party TRS has won in Telangana, has said that his party will be taking an active and key role in national politics.
"We are being cool and calm, we never cared about Congress and others. We will be taking an active and key role in national politics. I will do national politics from Hyderabad. We want non-Congress and non-BJP rule in India," he said.
He also said that his party supports the demands of the farmers who have been marching from all over the country demanding the implementation of MS Swaminathan report and loan waivers for them.
