Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s master plan of inviting Karnataka Transport Minister H M Revanna to the Golla Kuruma meeting in Hyderabad on Friday has dealt a big psychological blow to the Congress party in the state.
It is not known whether Revanna knows the Congress party is the main rival in Telangana which is making all out efforts to come to power in the next elections, but he definitely caused a big embarrassment to his own party by showering praises on KCR for constructing buildings for Golla and Kuruma communities.
Revanna lauded the decision of KCR to distribute sheep among the shepherd community.
“Telangana has also created history by giving 24-hour power supply to the agriculture sector. The Chief Minister has a single-point agenda, welfare of the people of the State,” he said.
Taking strong exception to Revanna’s praises on KCR, All India Congress Committee general secretary in-charge of Telangana R C Khuntia wondered how a Congress leader could praise KCR, a political rival of the party.
“This will demoralise the Congress workers in Telangana, who have been fighting relentlessly against the TRS government.
I will lodge a complaint with Congress president Rahul Gandhi and also ask Karnataka minister Siddharamaiah to sack him from the cabinet,” Khuntia said.
