Hyderabad: Congress leaders kept up their focus on caretaker minister T. Harish Rao. After Congress’ Gajwel contestant Vanteru Pratap Reddy alleged that Mr Harish Rao had called him to defeat the caretaker CM K. Chandrasekhar Rao, TS Congress working president A. Revanth Reddy said Mr Harish Rao was planning to “change his car driver.”
Speaking to mediapersons in Delhi on Thursday, Mr Revanth Reddy claimed that Medak MP Kotha Prabhakar Reddy had taken Mr T. Narsa Reddy of Gajwel to meet Mr Harish Rao on October 25 at the minister’s official quarters.
The day after the meeting, Mr Narsa Reddy went to Delhi and joined the Congress, he said. He said Mr Harish Rao “should inform the public about what is happening in the party.” He claimed that terms between Mr Harish Rao and his uncle Mr Chandrasekhar Rao “were not that good.” He said that if the TRS government released CCTV footage of the ministers’ quarters, the vehicles and the persons in them can be identified easily, he said.
“This will give clarity to KCR, K.T. Rama Rao and Harish Rao along with the public of Telangana. It is certain that the TRS will have huge disputes within the party and the family,” Mr Revanth Reddy claimed.
On Wednesday, Gajwel Congress aspirant Vanteru Pratap Reddy had claimed that he had met Mr Harish Rao twice. He said, “Harish Rao and I met twice earlier and I have evidence for what I’m saying. All the evidence will be revealed at the right time.”
He said he could “promise in front of the god” about their meeting. “Can Harish say that no such meeting was there? TRS leaders are fearful of KCR’s defeat in Gajwel,” he said....
