HYDERABAD: TPCC president A Revanth Reddy on Tuesday dared MAUD Minister KT Rama Rao to a debate on issues that the latter had raised during an interaction with mediapersons earlier in the day. "I am ready for any debate on any issue of your choice, whether it is development, politics or the elections," Revanth said, in a sharp reaction to the stinging comments made by the TRS working president.

He asked Rama Rao as to who had given him the authority to talk about senior leaders of the Congress. "If I say anything, the TRS goes to court, which only shows how intolerant the leaders are to criticism. It also betrays the yellow streak in them. The MAUD Minister should keep in mind how the Congress had buried the TRS and the BJP in Musi river for colluding in the byelection to Lingojiguda municipal corporation," the TPCC chief said.

Revanth took a serious exception to Rama Rao's comment that Revanth was a coin out of circulation as he had lost the poll to Kodangal Assembly in the 2018 Assembly election. He said, "KTR should hang his head in shame as he could not ensure the victory of his sister K Kavitha in the election to Nizamabad Lok Sabha seat in 2019."

The Congress leader further said Rama Rao was happy with what his father K Chandrasekhar Rao had earned for him, and warned him that his sense of contentment and happiness would not last very long as the people were ready to teach the TRS a fitting lesson.
