My Sympathies with Lokesh: KTR
Hyderabad: BRS working president K.T. Rama Rao on Friday conveyed his sympathies to Telugu Desam general secretary Nara Lokesh who alleged that his father and former chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu faced a threat to his life in prison.
“If what Lokesh tweeted is true, it is unfortunate and not right. If such a situation (threat to the life of politicians) prevails, it is not good politics. I did not feel good seeing Lokesh’s tweet,” Rama Rao, while speaking informally with mediapersons.
Rama Rao spent some time recalling his trauma when the police told him that his father K. Chandrasekhar Rao, who was on a fast-unto-death at that time for Telangana statehod, would become brain dead when he was admitted in Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences.
“When I could not respond, a woman officer took my mother away and told her bluntly that her husband would be dead if his fast unto death was not called off. As a son I know the pain people undergo when their father’s life is in danger,” Rama Rao said.
With regard to his refusal to allow protests in the city’s IT zone against Naidu’s arrest, Rama Rao said that the city’s tranquility should not be disturbed with agitations and counter agitations by followers of two AP-based political parties which have no stakes in Telangana. “We would have allowed their dharna had it been organised at Dharna Chowk,” he said, referring to the designated place for protests near Indira Park.
