With elections to the state assembly just a year away, Telangana chief minister and Telangana Rashtra Samihti chief K Chandrasekhar Rao is back to his tongue lashing at his political rivals.
In the last two days of his northern Telangana tour, KCR used very strong words against the Centre and particularly targeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He went to the extent of calling the Prime Minister “Vaadu,” (that fellow) a word which shows disrespect towards the highest authority in the country.
“What has that person done to the state agriculture? He did not have the courtesy to announce remunerative price. Does that fellow lose his grandfather’s property?” KCR asked in Adilabad.
Naturally, this has angered the Bharatiya Janata Party leaders. Taking objection to his degrading comments against Modi, the BJP leaders demanded an unconditional apology from the chief minister.
On Wednesday, they held protest rallies against KCR and burnt his effigies in every mandal headquarters.
They said KCR’s comments against Modi were highly objectionable and insulting.
“He has crossed all the limits. He has no respect even for the prime minister. His arrogance is increasing every passing day,” they said.
In Hyderabad, a delegation of BJP leaders called on Governor ESL Narasimhan and sought action against KCR for his remarks against Modi.
