Today is Telangana formation day. The 29th state of India was formed after decades of agitation and flip flops by political parties. It was finally the UPA government at the Centre which decided to accord a separate state of Telangana in the run up to the 2014 elections.
Telangana faces a crucial election in 2019 when both the assembly and state goes to polls. The TRS is the ruling party and it would have a big challenge from the Congress which is in the opposition.
The plans to set up a third front are no doubt intensifying, but the inclusion of the Congress could hamper the idea in the states of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Mamata Banerjee has been leading the bandwagon and is trying to get like-minded parties including the Congress on board.
