Vijayawada: A local court on Monday ordered
the police to register a case against Telengana Rastra Samiti
(TRS) President K Chandrasekhar Rao on his alleged derogatory
remarks against Brahmins of Andhra region.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Prasada Rao
gave the direction on a private complaint filed by one
Govindaraju Srinivas.

In the complaint, Srinivas stated that the TRS chief,
speaking at a function in Hyderabad last month, had made
objectionable comments about Andhra Brahmins.

His remarks have hurt the sentiments of lakhs of
Brahmins in the region. Such statements are unconstitutional
and they promote regional feelings among a community, he said.

The TRS leader`s utterances may cause disintegration
of the society, Srinivas maintained.

After verifying the merits of the complaint, the Judge
asked the police to register a case against the former Union
Minister and investigate the matter.
