Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu met Congress president Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi on Wednesday morning before heading out to West Bengal.
Neither the Congress chief nor Mr. Naidu spoke to the media after the meeting.
Mr. Naidu will be meeting West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee and attend her party’s rallies on Thursday and Friday.
Opposition leaders are trying to work out a meeting on May 21, two days before the Lok Sabha results come out, to discuss the prospects of a post poll arrangement.
According to The Hindu on , Mr. Naidu asserted that post May 23, a new prime minister would replace Narendra Modi. He asserted that the prime ministerial candidate would be amicably selected.
“There are only three possible options. One, where the Congress leads; second, where the Congress supports from outside like in the United Front government, or third, where the Congress has to join the alliance. There is no fourth option,” he said.
Mr. Naidu was in Delhi to attend the Supreme Court hearing on a review petition filed by 21 parties demanding 50% counter-checking of the Voter-Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT).
