Mancherial: Chennur MLA Balka Suman alleged that former Peddapalli MP Dr G Vivekanand had deceived the TRS by working against the party’s nominees in the Assembly elections.
Addressing pressmen here on Saturday, Suman responded to Vivek’s remarks on the denial of ticket to the latter. He said Vivekanand was not a Dalit but a rich man. He accused Vivek of duping the party and said people were aware of his act. He asked what Vivekanand had done for Dalits.
The legislator said the TRS had recognised the role of Vivek’s father in Telangana movement. The government had erected the statue of G Venkata Swamy on Tank Bund. Suman faulted the ex-MP for saying the party had deceived him and that it had slit his throat for trusting it.
