Soil Ero­sion

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

Congress spokesper­son Renuka Choud­hary, 58, is ea­ger to con­test the Lok Sabha elec­tion from Kham­mam in Te­lan­gana, which she won in 2004 but lost in 2009. She de­scribes her­self as the daugh­ter of the soil. But state Min­is­ter for Hor­ti­cul­ture R. Venkat Reddy says she must pro­duce “a birth cer­tifi­cate to prove the daugh­ter of the soil sta­tus”. R. Damodar Reddy, an MLA and a well-known Congress party mo­tor-mouth, wants more—an apol­ogy to the peo­ple of Te­lan­gana as “she has in­sulted them and the sep­a­ratist state cam­paign in the past”. Per­haps, it will be safe for Choud­hary to stay put in the Ra­jya Sabha un­til 2018.
