Panchayat Raj Minister K. Tarakarama Rao on Saturday strongly defended the defections by leaders of opposition parties into ruling TRS.
Speaking to media persons here, KTR asked whether Leader of Opposition K. Jana Reddy did not join Congress party after resigning from TDP. He said several leaders belonging to different parties were joining the TRS to support Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao in achieving fast pace growth of Telangana State.
Replying to another query, KTR said TRS leaders were not behind making a threatening call to Leader of Opposition in Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir. He said that Shabbir Ali was a big leader and the TRS leaders have no guts to threaten him. He said that the police have already begun investigations to trace the culprit. (INN)
