KTR hits back at Rahul Gandhi, challenges him to win 4 assembly seats in Amethi

Hyderabad: Telangana minister KT Rama Rao on Sunday asked Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi to win four assembly seats in his Amethi constituency before speaking about winning in Telanagana Assembly elections.

Addressing a gathering of MSME Industries at Balanagar here, the IT minister hit back at Gandhi saying where ever he stepped in it “proved to be disaster” for Congress.

Rahul’s salvo targeting Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao over dynastic politics had ricocheted back, with Rama Rao calling it “joke of the millennium” on Saturday.

“Time and again it was proved in Uttar Pradesh and many other elections. Rahul Gandhi is irrelevant to politics looking at his loosing track record. People have already forgotten him,” said KTR, son of K Chandrasekhar Rao.

“Wasn’t it the Congress party government which forcefully merged Telangana with Andhra Pradesh? Wasn’t it the Congress which carried out firing on students and killed 369 students during 1969 agitation? Isn’t the Congress (indirectly) responsible for the suicides of the innocent youths of Telangana and delay in formation of Telangana?” he asked.
