Now, KTR refers to Amit Shah as Mun­geri Lal

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

T elan­gana IT min­is­ter K T Rama Rao has now likened BJP chief Amit Shah to ‘Mun­geri Lal’ in once Do­or­dar­shan’s pop­u­lar se­rial ‘Mun­geri lal ke Haseen Sapne’. “Amit Shah has made a claim that the BJP would form the next gov­ern­ment in Te­lan­gana. He is like ‘Mun­geri Lal’ who is liv­ing in a make-be­lieve and imag­i­nary world,” Rao com­mented at aTRS party meet­ing of Sanath­na­gar con­stituency on Sun­day.

De­mand­ing that the Elec­tion Com­mis­sion in­ter­vene to ver­ify and sani­tise voter lists, Congress spokesman Ab­hishek Singhvi said a pre­lim­i­nary ex­am­i­na­tion sug­gested that the prob­lem of du­pli­cates, deleted vot­ers and disqual­i­fied vot­ers was far more acute in Te­lan­gana. “Close to 70 lakh vot­ers are found to be falling in these three cat­e­gories,” he said.

He added, “Rao rushed to an­nounce as­sem­bly polls dates and chose to ig­nore thedis­crep­an­cies in the voter list that erode the in­tegrity of the polls, when­ever they are con­ducted.”
