Hyderabad: Senior Congress legislator T. Jeevan Reddy on Wednesday slammed Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao for not addressing the inaugural meeting of the Osmania University centenary celebrations.

Speaking to newspersons at Gandhi Bhavan on Wednesday, Mr Reddy said it was shameful that the Chief Minister did not take the opportunity to thank the Osmania student community for participating in the Telangana statehood agitations and the sacrifices they had made for the cause. 

 

He recalled that the students had agitated for a separate Telangana state right from 1969 and had even sacrificed their lives. He asked the Chief Minister if it was not his bounden duty to speak on such a solemn occasion, that too with the President present. 

He said that the CM’s silence indicated that “KCR is afraid of the students, he stepped into OU after a gap of three years and remained a mute spectator all through.”  

In a related development, former Deputy Chief Minister Damodar Raja Narasimha told the media that “KCR literally fled from the OU without a speech. He was afraid students will do him harm if he speaks. It is shameful.”
