"This great nation has given us so much. We have to protect its future. Nation is all we are interested in. They have instructed me to talk to all antiBJP parties to chalk out a programme. That is why I am here," Naidu told reporters.
The TDP leader said that meetings will be organised between the antiBJP parties in the coming days where a future course of action will be chalked out.
"Condition of democracy and institutions such as CBI, RBI is very bad. The nation is going through great crisis. Today, democracy is in danger and the nation's people are in danger," Farooq Abdullah says following meeting with Pawar and Naidu.
The TDP chief is likely to call on Congress president Rahul Gandhi later in the day, to discuss the matter.
