HYDERABAD: Telugu Desam Party president N. Chandrababu Naidu on Wednesday said there was no scope for a third alternative political formation in the State.

He was responding to questions at a press conference here in the backdrop of media reports of a meeting between Telugu film star Chiranjeevi and CPI (M) Secretary, B. V. Raghavulu, to explore possibility of forming such an alternative to the Congress and TDP.

Mr. Naidu said such a formation would be a possibility when the atmosphere was conducive and there was a political vacuum.

None of them exist now, as the TDP had emerged as a strong alternative to the Congress.

“We have endeared ourselves to the people with our policies from protecting the self- respect of Telugus to providing opportunities to weaker sections.”

To another question, he ruled out the possibility of reviving relations with the BJP.
