Hyderabad: Former Congress MP V. Hanumantha Rao on Sunday created a mild flutter at the Alai-Bhalai event organised by former Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya by saying that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had insulted Telangana state by removing him from the Union Cabinet

He said that more than 54 per cent of the population in Telangana state comprised people from the Backward Classes, which is highest in the country. Removing Mr Dattatreya, who represented the BC community of Telangana state, had sent a wrong signal, Mr Hanumantha Rao said.

 

Union minister of state Hansraj Ahir Gangaram, who was present at the event, immediately took the mike and said it was not proper for the leaders to rake up controversies over the constitution of the Union Cabinet.

He told Mr Hanumantha Rao that Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself was from the backward community, was no discrimination shown to a BC leader like Mr Dattatreya.

He said the BJP had decided to make use of Mr Dattatreya’s services for the party and there would be no question of  ignoring such a tall leader from Telangana state. The annual Alai-Bhalai meet at Exhibition Ground saw several ministers and political leaders.
