TRS MLA’s meeting with YSR raises eyebrows

Special Correspondent

No personal agenda, says KCR’s nephew Harish Rao



What’s up?: TRS MLA T. Harish Rao presenting a bouquet to Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy at the Secretariat in Hyderabad on Monday.

HYDERABAD: A meeting of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) MLA from Siddipet T. Harish Rao with Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy in the Secretariat on Monday, a day after counting of votes for the byelections, raised several eyebrows.

The meeting fuelled a debate about its political significance in light of TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao remaining out of reach for everyone and the drama staged outside his house by partymen on Sunday urging him not to resign. Mr. Harish Rao, who presented a bouquet to the Chief Minister, said that he met the Chief Minister only to seek sanction of a Government Women’s Degree College in Siddipet constituency.

Sources, however, said the Chief Minister remarked to the MLA that that his party’s failure to effectively utilise the services of young leaders like him across the region had compounded its woes.

Mr. Harish Rao, who is K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s nephew, is learnt to have appreciated the Chief Minister for acknowledging that the Telangana sentiment was not defeated and that the doors for a patch-up with the TRS were open.

Denying that he had any political agenda, Mr. Harish Rao told The Hindu that nothing much should be read into his brief meeting with the Chief Minister.

He had gone there during visitors’ hours after some lecturers from Siddipet requested him to take up the demand for the college with the government.

Mr. Rao said the one-on-one meeting lasted barely 90 seconds during which they initially congratulated each other over the election results.

Demand for college

Dr. Reddy stated that his demand for a college would be difficult to concede and assured that an additional section to the existing degree college at Siddipet would be created. Dr. Reddy asked him to come back after a week, Mr. Rao said.
