Warangal: Station Ghanpur MLA Thatikonda Rajaiah has faced severe criticism from netizens after a video went viral showing him being hand-fed by a tenth class girl while another boy is standing beside her holding a bottle of water.
The MLA was attending a function organised when the head master of Zilla Parishad High School in Chelpur area of Jangaon district retired on Friday.
The MLA asks the girl to feed him an egg and she obliges. Netizens are asking why the MLA is being fed by a female student, when he is fit enough to eat by himself.'
Rajaiah has condemned postings on the social media including Whats-App stating he considers the student as his daughter. It is upon her request that he agreed to be fed.
“The students of the school are close to me due to my frequent visits and motivational speeches. Every time, I spoke to the students and shared my school memories with them. The student in the video is a school topper. I appreciate her a lot and encourage her to aim high in life. After completion of the function, she herself came and requested that she be allowed to feed me. I obliged because she is like a daughter to me. It is sad that people on social media are distorting reality,” he said.
When contacted, parents of the student said there is nothing wrong with the incident and refused to comment further.
They requested media not to publicise details of their daughter....
