Telangana Telugu Desam Forum has blamed the TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao for “dilution” of the movement for separate Statehood when it was at its peak.
In a statement, Forum leader, Motkupalli Narasimhulu said Mr. Rao owed an apology to the people of Telangana for letting them down badly. While full credit goes to government employees of the region for selflessly continuing the strike for 42 long days, Mr. Rao would go down as a “traitor” of the movement. Unfortunately political leaders of the region could not match the employees’ determination.
By going to Delhi for lobbying for an irrigation project contract, the TRS chief did what former Chief Minister M. Channa Reddy did in the past. If the latter was responsible for the sacrifice of 400 people, the former is to be blamed for the loss of 600 students who had committed suicide.
