Talking about the change that has to be in the country, the Chief Minister said, "I am saying that change has to take place among the people of India".

He also indicated that he will be in talks with all the like-minded leaders and parties for creating an agenda for the country's growth.

The MIM leader said the statement by the TRS chief was encouraging as there is a big vacuum in the country.

Mamata agreed with Rao's opinion that there is a necessity for qualitative change in the country's politics. Sources say that Rao has already started making calls to heads of various regional parties to stitch together a political alternative at the national level. "I am insignificant", Owaisi remarked on whether he will be part of the proposed alliance.

He questioned on what the two national parties did for the developmental measures of the people.

The MP believes KCR also has political sagacity and foresight. People are vexed now.

"And on the anvil of elections (due in Telangana next year) to secure himself from these kind of charges, he is trying to build up a case so that he can claim political vendetta", the BJP spokesperson alleged. Rao had asked. "People are looking for change". Can we expect something new to happen if the Congress comes to power after the BJP?
