Hyderabad: The Telangana Rashtra Samithi floor leader in the Assembly, Mr Etela Rajender, here on Friday claimed that the people of Telangana region view the Telugu Desam as “420 party” and therefore that party’s leaders of the region were bidding adieu in deference to the wishes of the electorate.
Mr Rajender was speaking while welcoming the former senior TDP leader, Mr Pocharam Srinivas Reddy into the party. He appealed to the people’s representatives of all parties in the region to emulate Mr Srinivas Reddy. Mr Rajender pointed out that the latter had differed with the Telugu Desam party for the past two months.
The TRS leader said that those who do not respect the wishes of the people are no true representatives of the people. Leaders of all parties in the region, who have scant respect for people’s sentiment will face political burial, he warned. He also charged the TDP with doing gross injustice to the people of the region with its two-eyed theory. He stressed the need for all leaders of the Telangana region to come forward and spearhead the struggle for the separate Telangana State. (NSS)
