Hyderabad: TRS working president KT Rama Rao on Friday appealed to the Opposition parties yet again, for a civilised discussion on people’s issues and maintain some decorum. He also stated that the Opposition leaders were testing the patience of the ruling party leaders and were using derogatory remarks while criticising the government.
Responding to the media queries over the ongoing war of words between Minister Ch Malla Reddy and TPCC president A Revanth Reddy here on Friday, Rama Rao urged the Opposition leaders to mend their ways or get ready to face consequences. He pointed out that for every action, there will be an equal and opposite reaction. “We have been patient and controlling our cadres from reacting to their accusations for the last seven years. We have been also appealing to them repeatedly to maintain some civility and decorum, but in vain. Minister Ch Malla Reddy had only reacted to them in their own language,” he said.
He reminded that the Congress-supported Maharashtra government had arrested Union Minister Narayan Rane for his remarks against Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and wondered if the Opposition leaders wanted similar treatment in Telangana as well. He said the TRS government respects democracy and was only appealing to the Opposition parties to maintain decorum in politics.
Referring to TPCC president A Revanth Reddy, the TRS working president said the grand-old Congress party could not find a leader fit enough to lead it in the State and imported a TDP leader who is a benami of TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu. The current TPCC president who was found red-handed with money in Cash for Vote case and was jailed, too was speaking against the Chief Minister without any respect.
“Though it is our bird, it parrots what its master says. Chandrababu Naidu is running the Congress party’s franchise in Telangana and the TPCC president is a puppet mimicking his master’s voice,” he said. He stated that people were aware of the status of Revanth Reddy and doubted if he would resign to his TPCC post as challenged by Minister Malla Reddy.
