JD(S) chief and former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda today called on Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao at Pragathi Bhavan.
While IT Minister K T Rama Rao welcomed Gowda, KCR offered him a shawl.
The 85-year-old former PM, who arrived in the city on Saturday evening, attended the wedding of Congress leader T Subbirami Reddy's grandson on Sunday. He then went to KCR's residence at Begumpet, and got a warm reception.
The leaders discussed briefly on the proposed federal front against the BJP and the Congress at the national level.
The meeting assumes importance as Gowda has already hinted at early elections, and reportedly spoke of the same with the Telangana CM. The two leaders reportedly had one-to-one talks on news reports that early elections may take place, and on the capability for the proposed federal front to be ready for it.
They are also understood to have talked on the current political scenario elsewhere in the country.
The Chief Minister saw off Gowda, who took a flight from the Begumpet airport to Bengaluru.
