HYDERABAD: BRS working president KT Rama Rao and Finance Minister T Harish Rao targeted the Congress after its senior leader and former Union minister P Chidambaram expressed regret over loss of lives during the Telangana movement.

Rama Rao posted on the X platform: “Too late and Too little Chidambaram Ji. Your party is solely responsible for taking the lives of hundreds of Telangana youngsters from 1952-2014. No matter how hard you try now, the people of Telangana will always remember the brutalities Congress perpetrated on us (sic).”

Meanwhile, Harish Rao said that Chidambaram expressing regret was like a murderer condoling the deaths. “Several youths sacrificed their lives only after the Central government took back Chidambaram’s statement on separate Telangana,” Harish Rao posted on X. He also said that Chidambaram has spread canards about Telangana’s debts and revenue. “Telangana’s fiscal prudence is better than several states being ruled by the Congress,” Harish Rao said. 

“The people of Telangana are not ready to believe the words of Chidambaram, who is seeking an opportunity for the Congress to form the government here. Let Chidambaram try it in Tamil Nadu and see if the Congress comes to power there,” he added.
