Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and Congress chief Rahul Gandhi told to reporters on alliance that their “chemistry is very good”.
The two leaders, whose parties have been longtime rivals, decided to join hands ahead of the December 7 assembly elections in Telangana. The partnership, they had indicated after their first meeting earlier this month, will be broad-based and long-term.
“We like each other. We think there is a lot we can do together and I think, you’re going to see that in these next coming elections, we are going to win elections,” Mr Gandhi said in Telangana’s Hyderabad, where he had gone for campaigning on Wednesday.
“We are very clear, the nation is very, very important,” Mr Naidu told to leading media house. “It is our responsibility – Telegu Desam, Congress party and other political parties have joined together to defeat BJP and save the nation.”
