Telangana Chief Minister KCR visits Shibu Soren in Jharkhand but claims it is unrelated to any political issues.
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao said in Ranchi on Friday that the central government was not running the country "properly" and that it needed to be "remedied," adding that he had been talking to various leaders across the country to decide on the agenda, but denied that it was about any "anti-BJP, anti-Congress, fourth front, or third front."
Rao was in Jharkhand to hand over the Rs 10 lakh checks he had promised to provide to the families of the state's two soldiers slain in the Galwan Valley confrontation with China.

He met with Shibu Soren of the governing Jharkhand Mukti Morcha and held a news conference, recalling that Soren was the first person invited at the commencement of his party's demand for a separate Telangana state in 2001. "I told him that negotiations are being held with other leaders around the country." I'd want to point out that 75 years after independence, development hasn't progressed as much as it should have. On a number of fronts, we continue to lag. China, like other countries, has progressed. And the government in charge of the country now is not performing its job effectively. It needs to be fixed, and we discussed it." He went on to say that he had discussed the agenda with several leaders.
When questioned if it was a plan for an anti-BJP front, he declined to identify it. "We are quite aware that India has to be directed in a better path, and an effort is being made, and people are talking about it." There are no anti-BJP, anti-Congress, fourth, or third fronts. What is to come will be known. True, no progress has been made, and something fresh must be done." However, he stated that there was still no agreement on the agenda's direction.
"KCR is a political guy," Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren later added. He stated that his encounter with Shibu had to be interpreted in that light.
