KTR takes jibe at Sanjay’s yatra
Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) working president KT Rama Rao came down heavily on BJP state president Bandi Sanjay for taking up a state-wide pada yatra.
“Why is Bandi Sanjay taking up a pada yatra? Is he unable to use his bandi (vehicle) due to the hike in petrol price? Will Bandi do a quick survey on the government assets available in the state and report the same to the Prime Minister for selling them away?” KTR said, addressing a press conference here on Friday.
He recalled that he explained to people about the BJP’s “Becho India” slogan in the GHMC polls.
