HYDERABAD: Telangana bossman K Chandrasekhar Rao’s son K T Rama Rao unwittingly confirmed he is the heir apparent of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) when he joined in a twitter slugfest with Congress gen sec Digvijaya Singh.
The old Congress hand needled K T Rama Rao with a tweet alleging that some of the stars featuring in the current drug scandal rocking Tollywood have connections in high places in Telangana. Digvijaya’s tweet read: "Influential friends of TRS heir apparent are involved in it. Let's see if they would be saved or prosecuted. Let's see."
To which, twitter-happy IT minister K T Rama Rao (KTR) came back strongly: "You've completely lost it, sir. Time to retire gracefully & do something worth your age. Glad that you've finally learnt to spell Telangana."
Succession to K Chandrasekhar Rao’s legacy is a three-way contest, with son KTR the favourite while nephew T Harish Rao remains a strong man in the party with a strong grassroots support and daughter K Kavita, MP, has a claim too.
