KCR slows down third front as he fears anti-BJP crusade may benefit his rival congress

KCR has put off his plans to hold a massive public meeting on the eve of TRS plenary later this month, to unveil Non-Congress,Non-BJP front. The earlier idea was to invite all those leaders sympathetic to such a third front to the proposed public meeting. Though TRS  says that the meet is postponed to October, it is clear that there are political reasons for not holding any such united show of like minded parties. The congress has intensified its political outreach activities. The congress led mahagatbandhan that includes Kodandaram's TJS, CPI,and even TDP is an imminent possibility. The leaders of these parties are openly talking about emergence of  such an anti TRS front to take on KCR juggernaut. Thus KCR is not ready to initiate any political action that may turn into an advantage to congress in the state. The TRS fears that united fight against Modi may inevitably benefit congress.  Besides, KCR knows it very well that BJP's increased vote tally in the state would only help him as it divides opposition vote. 
Meanwhile congress accuses KCR to be Modi's trump card.
