Addressing media hours after dissolving the state assembly, Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao dismissed Congress President Rahul Gandhi as a ‘buffoon’. Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) chief even said that they will announce the list of 105 candidates for the elections that may soon be announced for the formation of new government.
Daring the Congress to come and fight elections on the ground, KC Rao said that Telangana is now free of issues like bomb blasts, electricity shortage and communal violence which plagued the newly formed state. But it is now free of all this.
Referring to Rahul Gandhi as ‘buffoon’, he mocked Rahul Gandhi’s ‘hug-and-wink‘ drama from the floor test held in July. He said that Rahul Gandhi is like an asset for TRS and the more he visits Telangana for campaigning, the more it will work in their favour and lead to electoral wins. Further, referring to TRS as a secular party, he denied joining hands with the BJP for the election which is expected to be announced soon.
Taking a dig at the Rahul Gandhi, who, ironically, had earlier accused Telangana CM of dynasty politics, KC Rao said that Rahul Gandhi has inherited the legacy of Congress Delhi sultanate and he is the legal heir of Congress empire of Delhi and appealed to people that Telangana decisions should be taken in Telangana and not from Delhi.
