TRS president targets Praja Rajyam chief

Special Correspondent

Asks him to prove charges levelled against OU students



K. Chandrasekhar Rao

HYDERABAD: Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao has targeted his Praja Rajyam counterpart Chiranjeevi for stating that the latter had evidence to prove that the Osmania University Joint Action Committee was indulging in blackmailing tactics in the matter of screening ‘Komuram' Puli movie.

Addressing a meeting at TRS office on Sunday, Mr. Rao dared Chiranjeevi to produce the evidence since he had committed himself to do so at the right time. There could not be a better timing than this, he added.

Mr. Rao castigated Chiranjeevi for finding fault with gem like students of the university and asked how the latter dare use such words against them. The PRP leader was making students unpopular by his comments. He should tender an apology if he failed to prove the charges against them. The students were justified in opposing the film though they did it in a fit of emotion, he said. After all, they only asked viewers not to watch the film since it hurt the sentiments of the people of the region. TRS president took exception to some MLAs of Telugu Desam rushing to the house of one their party leaders in Warangal today in the backdrop of speculation that he was trying to join TRS.

He also vent his spleen on Congress MLA of Kurnool T.G. Venkatesh for criticising the former. On the other hand, Congress MP Madhu Yaskhi was more responsible in his public statements. He criticised the Congress leaders from coastal districts for airing their views in defiance of party president Sonia Gandhi. The Congress government in the State was totally dependent on police force to execute all public programmes. Even the conduct of exams, screening of films and visits of political leaders were no exception, he said.

He warned that the government would not be able to control the situation if emotions of youth went berserk. They were anxious to see formation of separate Telangana. The weaker sections in coastal districts also wanted bifurcation of State but it was only the elitist sections of that region which enjoyed lands around Hyderabad that was opposed to the demand, he said.
