State minister for minor irrigation TG Venkatesh on Wednesday heavily criticised the leaders of the Telangana Rashtriya Samithi (TRS) saying that the pink party leaders are acting like stand-up comedians in a reality show on the pretext of attaining separate statehood for Telangana.

Speaking to the media at his office here Wednesday, the minister said that TRS leaders especially party president K Chandrasekhar Rao and Harish Rao have been playing a drama with regard to Telangana movement.

“They created tempo, emotion during the movement by promising the people of Telangana that the state would bifurcate in 28 hours, 48 hours, within a month or at anytime. But, the leaders are also well aware that it is not easy to find a solution for the Telangana issue,” he said.

He further said that the TRS leaders have failed in maintaining good relation with other political parties like the Congress, BJP, TDP, YSRCP and communist parties.

“They developed a rift with the people, NGOs, businessmen and even students. The TRS top brass even fought with Professor Kondandaram who has been fighting for Telangana. How can they get special state without the co-operation of other parties and leaders?” he asked.

MLA S Sudhakar Babu said that KCR and Harish Rao has floated the TRS only for their monetary gains. “Harish Rao should be booked under the SC, ST Atrocity Act for attacking a dalit officer at AP Bhavan in New Delhi,” he said.
