TRS chief, the Telangana movement’s alter ego, KCR has said that despite the battle he is in with Congress, the fact is that Sonia Gandhi is the main reason behind Telangana creation. In an interview he has given to national media channel NDTV, he has opened his heart in a never before manner and has declared that he will never support Modi, and will be the first person to stand by Rahul if he needs his help to become PM.
He has declared that he never had any problem with the top leadership of the Congress. But it is the second rung leadership of Congress, he named Jairam Ramesh, by making very harsh comments on him just the day after he returned to Hyderabad, that has spoiled the mood and ultimately resulted in the present face-off. He has refused to compare Modi with Rahul; “he is still today too immature,” he passed his verdict on Rahul. Modi has played into the hands of Andhra leaders, Chandra Babu and Venkayya Naidu and has spoiled, or rather, killed his own chances in Telangana, said KCR.
“I have good regards for Sonia Gandhi, because of her initiative only Telangana became possible, she was the main reason behind the formation of Telangana,” spoke an emotional KCR about Sonia Gandhi. Either Rahul or Modi cannot be compared to Sonia Gandhi, he said later.
He cannot support Modi because Hyderabad has been known for its “Ganga-Jamuna Tehzeeb” and I cannot ally with BJP risking the image, said KCR. By all probability, a third face, third front might come forward to forming the government, he opined.
He has expressed full confidence that Telangana will prosper in the future as it has abundant resources needed for it, “It has historically been a surplus state, it was pushed into backwardness” said KCR.
