HYDERABAD: Ridiculing the demand made by the Congress leaders that at least one district in the state is named after former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao, IT Minister KT Rama Rao wanted to know why the same Congress-led governments earlier in the erstwhile united state had failed to do the same.

“Congress insulted the great leader Narasimha Rao, who led the country at turbulent times with surprising aplomb by not allowing his mortal remains into the AICC headquarters in Delhi. The party never recognised the services of the Telangana Bidda. Now, they are shedding crocodile tears,” he said. Incidentally, Narasimha Rao’s birth anniversary was on Thursday. 

Earlier, after inducting some of the Congress and TDP leaders belonging to Yellareddy Assembly constituency into the TRS at Telangana Bhavan here, KTR hurled the choicest barbs at the Congress. “The Congress took the lives of as many as 1,000 Telangana youth, by not according to statehood to the region for ten years. It delivered Telangana only after all these youth laid down their lives. In 1969 also, as many as 370 youngsters in Telangana were shot dead by the police, during Congress regime, when they were agitating for a separate state,” he said.
