Hyderabad: Mr T Harish Rao, TRS MLA from Siddipet has accepted the challenge thrown by Telugu Desam party senior leader and MLA Mr Yerrabelli Dayakar Rao and said that if the TDP Legislators were prepared to resign for the cause of Telangana, then they (TRS MLAs) would also quit their posts.
Speaking to the media here today, Mr Harish Rao took exception to Mr Dayakar Rao’s tirade against the TRS and his allegation that Mr KCR, Dr Nagam and Prof Kodandaram have colluded with Mr Jagan; and said that the latter seems to have lost mental balance. He said that if the TDP elected Representatives were sincere to Telangana, they should abide by their resignations. The TRS legislators were also ready to quit their posts, he added.
He said that it was TRS that has obstructed the YSR Congress party’s proposed programme at Warangal, and it was ridiculous on the part of Mr Dayakar Rao to level baseless allegations against TRS.
The TRS leader made it clear that there was no question of accepting ‘Ghurkhaland’ type of package in regard to Telangana. He warned the Telangana Congress leaders who went to Delhi that they would face serious consequences if they returned without getting a clear cut statement from the High Command on Telangana state issue. If they could not secure am unambiguous assurance from the Centre, they should resign their posts and fight for Telangana, Mr Harish Rao demanded.
