Posted by on April 5, 2011 0 Comment

Hyderabad: Minister for Handlooms and Textiles, Dr. P. Shankar Rao, a strong critic of the YSR family, has said he was ready to contest against late Dr. Y S Rajasekhara Reddy’s son and YSR Congress chief Mr. YS Jaganmohan Reddy, in Kadapa in the present by- election.

Talking to the media here on Tuesday, he said if only the Congress High Command directed, he would contest either from Kadapa Lok Sabha seat or Pulivendula Assembly constituency. He condemned the statement of Mr Jagan that the by- elections were between Congress president Ms. Sonia

Gandhi and late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy. He said the remark has only shown Jagan’s ignorance.


Dr Shankara Rao said that the government should give Bharata Ratna, the highest civilian honor, to the cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar. He also said that Babu Jagjivan Ram and Sunil Gavaskar also should be conferred Bharata Ratna.

On bogus handloom weaver societies, he said he would take stern action against such societies, however, big persons might be involved in the scams. (NSS)
