Hyderabad: BJP State president Bandi Sanjay Kumar’s attempts to trigger a controversy against TRS working president and Minister KT Rama Rao on Friday finally turned out to be a case of a storm in a tea cup.
Rama Rao posted a tweet appreciating the good work done by the health workers in Khammam and Rajanna Siricilla districts to vaccinate farmers for Covid-19 as part of a special drive taken up in the State. He also highlighted how the health workers went into the agriculture fields and administered the vaccines, apart from the farm revolution ushered in the State under the leadership of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao.
Minutes later, Sanjay Kumar took to Facebook and posted that the one of the photographs posted by the Minister was similar to the one posted by YSR Congress party MP V Vijayasai Reddy, mentioning it as the work done by health workers in Vizianagaram district of Andhra Pradesh. He tried to corner the Minister for taking credit for work done in Andhra Pradesh.
Reacting swiftly, Rama Rao posted the full clippings of the two news reports including the photographs from Saakshi and Eeenadu. “It is a fact that Telangana healthcare workers have been doing a terrific job and let’s appreciate them,” he said.
