"Rajender is living in self-deception after joining BJP," the Minister said, after formally welcoming social activist Pulaveni Pochamallu Yadav and 1,000 followers into the TRS fold
Karimnagar: Finance Minister T Harish Rao on Sunday said he was surprised that former Minister Eatala Rajender continued to chant the Left mantra even after joining the right wing BJP.
“Rajender is living in self-deception after joining BJP,” the Minister said, after formally welcoming social activist Pulaveni Pochamallu Yadav and 1,000 followers into the TRS fold in Huzurabad. “Unable to tolerate the harassment by Rajender, Pochamallu joined TRS. The BJP leader also foisted false police cases against Pochamallu,” he said.
Stating that the people of Huzurabad were eager to see development of the constituency, he asked: “How can Rajender, who has done nothing in the last seven years, develop the constituency if he wins on a BJP ticket?” Only Rajender will benefit if BJP wins Huzurabad by-polls. On the other hand, if TRS candidate Gellu Srinivas Yadav gets elected, the people will benefit.”
He said at any cost, development should not be hampered and this was possible only with the victory of Srinivas Yadav who enjoys the support of Chief Minister K Chandrashekahar Rao.
An educated person, Srinivas Yadav played a vital role in Telangana agitation. Being a student leader, he faced rubber bullets and continued agitation while undergoing imprisonment in jail.
TRSV state leader Srinivas Yadav is going to become an MLA. Though the majority is not yet clear, the victory of Srinivas Yadav is confirmed. Rajender is going to lose the election.
Stating that Huzurabad was a stronghold for TRS, he said whatever be the election, TRS victory was confirmed.
BC Welfare Minister Gangula Kamalakar, Rajya Sabha MP Cap. Laxmikantha Rao, Husnabad MLA V Satish Kumar, former Minister E Peddireddy, SC Corporation Chairman Banda Srinivas, Koushik Reddy and others participated in the meeting.
