Hyderabad: The Telangana Rashtra Samithi senior leader and Siddipet MLA, Mr T Harish Rao, on Wednesday charged the Congress MP from Vijayawada, Mr Lagadapati Rajagopal, with resorting to blackmailing politics. He also faulted the actions of the advocate, Mr Adusumilli Jayaprakash and dubbed him as a sycophant of the MP.
Speaking to mediapersons here, Mr Harish Rao said that Mr Adusumilli Jayaprakash does whatever Mr Lagadapati dictates to him.
Condemning the remarks of the Union Home Minister, Mr P Chidambaram, that the Telangana issue cannot be solved overnight, the TRS leader said that the former’s remarks were highly irresponsible and astonishing. He pointed out that the Telangana issue was not a new one and the movement for separate State was going on for 56 years.
Mr Harish Rao said that the 56-year old movement getting intensified in the last two years rocking the region escaping the attention of the powers-that-be was strange and deplorable. He also alleged that the Seemandhra leaders were conspiring to sabotage formation of Telangana State at a time when the Union government was seriously trying to take a favourable decision. (NSS)
