Kodela Shiva Prasada Rao has stated that he lost four of his family members in his fight against feudal set up that was prevalent decades ago in his district. “I survived four bomb attacks. I lost my kith and kin. It was a fact that bombs exploded in the premises of my house and it was also a fact that I had nothing to do with the explosions. It was proved in a detailed probe” he said after resuming the Chair after the no-confidence motion fell flat.
Kodela has claimed that he was a reluctant entrant to politics. “By profession, I was a doctor and I wish to continue in the same profession. I struggled a lot in life and weathered many a storm. I entered politics with the inspiration of the legendary NTR. I am flawless in my public life. The Opposition has alleged that I am biased towards TD. Its not true. I am doing my best to give opportunity to all” he said.
