Share post:


HYDERABAD: Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K. Chandrasekhara Rao Friday threatened to file a defamation case against Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leaders for allegations that he struck a “secret deal” with the Congress to “dilute” the agitation for a separate Telangana state.

Launching a counter attack on TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu, the TRS leader dared him to an open debate on allegations of corruption and their assets.”People know who is the collection king. Naidu lives a benami (proxy) life. He is neck deep in corruption. In fact his other name is corruption,” said KCR, as Rao is popularly known.

KCR told reporters that many books were published on the corruption scandals during Naidu’s nine-year rule. (IANS)

The MP from Mahabubnagar denied that he has anything to do with the contract bagged by construction and infrastructure firm SEW for executing Polavaram Irrigation Project, which is worth over Rs.47 billion.

“I don’t even know how to file a tender,” said KCR, adding that he has already written to Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy to cancel the tender of the controversial project.
