Nayani blasts Uttam for “insane” talk
Stating that all sections of the people in the State were solidly behind Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for his unique programs for the benefit of all of them, the Home Minister said the Congress leaders were talking rubbish like lunatics due to jealousy and visualize their party’s burial in the near future. While AICC general secretary in-charge of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh Digvijaya Singh indirectly showered praises on the KCR government for launching historic programs, Telangana Pradesh Congress chief Uttam Kumar Reddy has been confusing the people by speaking utter lies, Nayani said and advised the Congress leaders not to speak lies.
Adverting to the Telangana Telugu Desam party, the Home Minister said one “Budderkhan” in that party was talking like an insane person. He also lashed out at the Communist parties for making meaningless criticism against the government and extend whole-hearted cooperation for the monumental progress and welfare of the people in the State.
