HEDERABAD: Amid a political slugfest with the BJP, TRS president and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday held separate meetings with senior leaders of the CPI(M) and CPI and discussed finding common ground in opposition to the Centre’s PSU disinvestment and other policies.

CPI state secretary Chada Venkat Reddy said the meetings took place at the invitation of the Chief Minister and Rao proposed working together regarding the central government’s public sector disinvestment programmes among other issues and sought the party’s opinion.

The CPI leader said said the party will get back after duly considering the issue.
