Hyderabad: With reports that Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao would launch his own national party, the Congress termed it “another political stunt” to weaken the Congress led non-BJP grouping.
PCC vice president Mallu Ravi felt that all the efforts to start a new party by Rao were aimed at helping the BJP and the Modi government at the Centre. “This will only damage the Congress and in this process KCR will lose his stakes in Telangana,” Ravi said.
"We need a person like Rahul Gandhi to bring back democracy and rule of law in India. How can KCR bring better government in India when he failed in governance in a small state like Telangana? A politician like Rahul Gandhi with a well-established pan India appeal is the only alternative to Modi. But an authoritarian like KCR cannot bring in required change," Ravi added.
