Dat­ta­treya al­leges in­ter­nal rift in TRS

Deccan Chronicle - - POLITICS - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT HYDERABD, OCT. 13

BJP leader Ban­daru Dat­ta­treya said the TRS was suf­fer­ing from in­ter­nal tur­bu­lence and as the elec­tion date ap­proaches, its own cadre would rock the boat. Cit­ing home min­is­ter Nayani Narasimha Reddy, he said that the TRS was splurg­ing crores of ru­pees of pub­lic money to re­tain power in the State.

Te­lan­gana state's rank­ing in cor­rup­tion re­flects what the gov­ern­ment is do­ing, he told re­porters on Sat­ur­day, adding that care­taker Chief Min­is­ter K. Chan­drasekhar Rao has no guts to re­ply to the ques­tions posed by BJP na­tional pres­i­dent Amit Shah.

Mr Dat­ta­treya said Mr Shah would visit the state again on Oc­to­ber 28 in or­der to ad­dress a big rally in the city. He said Mr Rao had changed his lan­guage and tempo as he saw the de­feat ap­proach­ing fast.

Ac­cus­ing both the Congress and the TRS for us­ing de­mean­ing lan­guage in their pub­lic meet­ings, he said that the two par­ties have no time to take care of peo­ple's gen­uine prob­lems.

Mr P. Babu Mo­han, who re­cently joined the BJP, said he would can­vass for the party in both Tel­ugu states as he had a con­sid­er­able fol­low­ing. He said Mr Rao, who brought him into the TRS, de­serted him for no fault of his.

Mr Mo­han said the BJP was the only party in the state which gives im­por­tance to Dal­its and BCs. Mr Mo­han also ac­cused Mr Rao of giv­ing a ticket to a per­son who was known to have a shady his­tory.
