HYDERABAD: IT Minister K T Rama Rao’s recent call given to people asking them to bury the Congress party deep in the earth attracted the ire of Congress seniors.
As many as five Congress senior leaders—Renuka Chowdary, V Hanumantha Rao, M Kodanda Reddy, Mohammed Ali Shabbir, and Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy— came down heavily on KTR for making such remarks.
All the five leaders, while addressing media separately on Monday, asked KTR to control his tongue and warned that people would teach a fitting lesson to the TRS “for cheating them with empty promises.”
“KTR should remind himself of the fact that his father and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s political life began in the Congress Party as a Youth Congress leader.
If both KCR and KTR are now enjoying power in the State, that is only because of statehood granted to Telangana by Sonia Gandhi. It’s not proper for KCR’s family to bite the hand that fed them,” V Hanumantha Rao and Shabbir Ali said. Renuka Chowdary alleged that KCR had used the recently held Assembly session to lie to the people of the State, particularly on the issue of agrarian crisis.
“Bangaru Telangana has been achieved only for the family of KCR and not for commoners. The State government completely failed to keep a tight rein on the sellers of spurious seeds. It has given permissions to the same companies, which were earlier involved in the distribution of fake seeds, to sell seeds this year also. What does it mean?” she questioned. The Congress leader alleged that the government had failed to come to the rescue of cotton farmers.
