Hyderabad, May 10 : Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee president Ponnala Lakshmaiah on Saturday accused TRS President K Chandrasekhar Rao of being an arrogant politician who does not respect his political opponents.
Addressing a press conference at Gandhi Bhavan here, Ponnala strongly objected to the use of words by KCR against him. Reacting to the term ‘broker’ used for him by KCR, he said that the term suits the TRS chief more. He said KCR was leveling baseless allegations against him using unparliamentary language. He said it was his upbringing that stopped him from abusing KCR.
Ponnala denied of threatening to tear the TRS into pieces. He also denied of meeting any TRS leader for negotiations. He alleged that KCR was insecure towards his own party leaders and that was the reason that forced him to make baseless allegations against him.
The TPCC chief claimed that he achieved a good position following a long struggle. “I have seen hunger and humiliation and then I went to US for studies. On my return, I joined the Congress party to serve the country,” he said. INN
