Telugu Desam Party​ (TDP) supremo and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who is trying to unite the opposition parties to take on the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections 2019 next year, on Thursday met Congress president Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi. Speaking to the media after the meeting, the two leaders said their prime aim is to defeat the BJP in the next year's general elections. 

"It is very clear that corruption is taking place. Institutions that can investigate are being attacked... A proper inquiry on what all happened, where the money went and who did corruption... that is what I am pushing very aggressively. Nation wants to know this," Rahul Gandhi said.  

Naidu said he was in discussion with all political parties. 

"We will meet on a common platform and chalk out strategies," he said. Responding to a question, he said, "You are interested in candidates, we are interested in the nation." 

Naidu's meeting with Gandhi comes amid seat-sharing talks between the two parties for the December 7 Assembly elections in Telangana.

Earlier in the day, Naidu met NCP chief Sharad Pawar and National Conference president Farooq Abdullah here.

Naidu "coincidentally" also met senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here and briefly discussed about the need to bring all non-BJP political parties together.
