Hyderabad: TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao
today came under criticism from state Congress leaders for
attacking APCC president D Srinivas.
Rao had hit out at Srinivas for not submitting a report
in favour of separate Telangana to the Srikrishna Committee
citing objections from Congress leaders from non-Telangana
"Submitting report to the Srikrishna Committee is an
internal matter of our party. Why should Chandrasekhar Rao
talk about it?," senior Congress MLA S Sailajanath told
The Committee was appointed by the Centre to examine the
situation in Andhra Pradesh over the Telangana issue.
"Chandrasekhar Rao is making allegations against Srinivas
only to prove his existence. He (TRS president) tried to
please Srinivas to have an electoral alliance with Congress
for the 2004 elections. How can he forget those days?," state
Health Minister and Congress` Hyderabad unit president D
Describing Rao as an "untrustworthy person", Sailajanath
alleged that the TRS president spoke against the issues which
he is highlighting now.
"He (Rao) tries to project himself as champion of
Telangana. He says various agreements like six-point formula
and Hyderabad, which were meant to benefit Telangana, have
never been implemented. But in 1996, he spoke against such
agreements on the floor of the House as a TDP MLA," he said.
